Life University remains committed to fostering an environment where students, faculty, staff and visitors are free from gender-based discrimination. In support of the university’s commitment, the Title IX Office is dedicated to educating campus community members about Title IX related issues and relevant federal and state laws. Education and training are important tools in preventing and responding to incidents of gender-based discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic/dating violence, stalking and retaliation (collectively “sexual misconduct”). The Title IX Office offers a variety of training and programs designed to facilitate critical conversations and raise awareness regarding sexual misconduct. We offer ongoing educational programming on bystander intervention, healthy/unhealthy relationships, effective consent and other relevant topics.

Title IX Training

The Title IX Office recognizes the importance of preventing sexual misconduct, so it offers a variety of educational programming, including primary prevention and awareness training for new students and new employees. Awareness and education are essential in building and maintaining a safe campus community, so the university has required training for incoming student and new employees.

Employee Training

All new employees are required to complete New Hire Orientation, which includes information related to sexual harassment and Title IX. Employees are also required to complete interactive training modules regarding harassment prevention and Title IX for higher education within the first 90 days of employment and annually.

Title IX prevention education is required for incoming students during new student orientation prior to the beginning of every quarter. Title IX education is also facilitated every quarter for all student athletes.

Title IX

Title IX Office

Title IX is a comprehensive federal civil rights law that prohibits sex-based discrimination (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity) in any educational program or activity that receives federal funding. Discrimination on the basis of sex includes sexual harassment and sexual violence, which includes sexual assault, sexual coercion, domestic/intimate partner violence, and stalking. Nondiscrimination protections apply to student recruitment, admissions, educational programs (including individual courses), research, housing, counseling, financial and employment assistance, health and insurance benefits and services. Title IX also prohibits retaliation against any person who reports or assists in making a report of sexual misconduct or who participates in the investigation and resolution of a complaint in any way.
