Title IX, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) & Reporting of
Abuse/ Neglect Training
The Department of Education and the Office of Civil Rights have mandated
that institutions take appropriate steps to provide a safer environment
for students on campus. A required component of this mandate is training
for faculty and staff.
In this training, the Office of Diversity and Equal
Opportunity has outlined learning objectives, definitions, responses, and
ways to report incidents of sexual harassment, sexual abuse,
domestic violence, stalking, and child abuse and/or neglect. Although child
abuse/neglect is not a part of Title IX, it is important to provide this
information. Completion of a quiz is required at the conclusion of the training.
To access the training, please log into Blackboard (or from the "My TU" homepage) with your user name and password.
Note: In order for Blackboard to function properly,
please be sure to use Firefox or Chrome on PC and Safari on Mac
as your browser. It is also necessary to have the latest Java
installed. If you are using a campus computer that you don't
have administrative rights on, use Software Center to update
Java. If you experience any problems related to computer
accessibility, fill out a service request online at techhelp.towson.edu. Please indicate that you are having problems with the Title IX, Violence
Against Women Act (VAWA) and Reporting of Child Abuse/Neglect Training.
