Rowan University Holds Annual 'Title IX Summit'Last Edited:
Rowan University welcomed scholars, educators, and government officials to campus today for day two of their annual Title IX Summit.
Nearly 220 professionals came out, on Tuesday, June 12th, to discuss issues related to sexual discrimination, harassment, and assault on college campuses and in the workforce.
With the topic at the forefront due to the Me Too and Times Up movements, officials say having open discussions like these are important to finding positive solutions and helping to keep students safe.
"We are only so happy to be able to offer a forum where government, non-profit organizations, academic institutions can all gather together and have a meaningful discussion about a variety of topics around Title IX," said Margie Viggiano, program coordinator at Rowan Office of Equity and Diversity.
Among Tuesday's presentations were sessions on how higher education professionals can respond to the national conversation on sexual harassment, how to support survivors of sexual violence, and how to conduct investigations of reported sexual misconduct.
