Each year the Title IX Office collaborates with campus partners to promote “Cup of Prevention,” an initiative to promote awareness and education campuswide on issues relating to sexual misconduct. This year the Title IX Office is collaborating with Rocket Dining, the Office of Student Advocacy and Support, and the Four Seasons Bistro on Health Science Campus.
“Partnerships are key to educating the whole campus community,” said Director, Title IX and Compliance & Title IX Coordinator Vicky Kulicke. “This year we are very excited about ‘Cup of Prevention’ as we collaborate with new campus partners and share information with areas all across campus. With these new partnerships we can work to bring awareness to continue dialogue about sexual misconduct and to share information about supportive measures that are available.”
Through the “Cup of Prevention” campaign, stickers will be placed on 1,500 coffee sleeves and food packages during the month of November. Each sticker will have a snap code leading to a page with information about Title IX and education opportunities to reduce sexual misconduct.
The “Cup of Prevention” campaign is one of a series of education initiatives during the academic year to inform the UToledo community about sexual misconduct and the campus resources available to them. The campaign is also designed to continue the conversation about how to reduce sexual misconduct incidents and to promote how to be a pro-social bystander.
“We encourage students, staff and faculty to learn about and utilize the Title IX Office,” said Ben Weiner, coordinator of Student Advocacy and Support. “There are several options available for students and the entire UToledo community. We hope that we can continue to have healthy conversations about the resources available and continue to spread awareness on sexual misconduct. This is crucial to the human experience and we need to continue to share these resources to support each and every Rocket.”
UToledo’s Title IX Office ensures compliance with federal law. Title IX Office investigates all reports of sexual misconduct, implements interim measures when necessary and works to remedy the effects of sexual misconduct.
The Title IX Office and Office of Student Advocacy and Support also will partner on an hourlong “Lunch & Learn” webinar with the Parent & Family Association, beginning at noon on Thursday, Nov. 12, to connect parents and families to the support services available to students.
