Supports Title IX & Campus SaVE requirements

Under Title IX and Campus SaVE Act requirements, institutions are asked to provide “ongoing prevention and awareness campaigns” related to sexual assault. In our effort to improve students’ health and wellbeing, and support the needs of our clients, Student Health 101 will be covering a feature topic every month addressing the requirements of the Campus SaVE Act.

All topics will link directly to relevant research and key resources for survivors, advocates, and bystanders. Some elements will also be customizable to reflect the needs of individual schools.

Below are examples of related content from the 2014-15 academic year:

What administrators are saying:

SH101 plays a role in Title IX compliance. My VP appreciates that it is [meeting] this specific need, especially at a small school where we have limited resources and professional expertise.”

“The articles are what I’d asked for and they’re PERFECT. I see they triggered a huge student response. This is so important for dialogue and learning outcomes.”

—Patricia Berube, RN, Director of Health Services, Westfield State University, Massachusetts

“I was approached by several students with comments about Student Health 101: how it educated them on sexual assault and how to report sexual assault on our campus. They also voiced their increase in confidence with helping their friends (or strangers) in situations that might be high risk for sexual assault. Their primary reason for action was Profile of a Perpetrator. I am very pleased with Student Health 101’s effort to provide content to aid in our ongoing prevention efforts—mandated by Title IX and the Campus SaVE Act—which have been recognized and supported by my Dean for this reason.”

—Kim Sexton, BSN, RN, Director of Student Health Services, Carson–Newman University, Tennessee

 

What students are saying:

“The most interesting thing to me was the assault survivor stories. I was humbled and reminded of the different stories each person brings to the world.”

—Franklin College, Indiana

“The Students’ Guide to Getting Help after a Sexual Assault: My friend was assaulted and it helped me connect with her better.”

—The College of New Jersey

“As a male on a college campus, it’s good to see a focus on how we can be active bystanders. The pressure shouldn’t just be on women; men are just as capable of stepping in and assisting others. It was a great article with a lot of insight.”

—Illinois State University

“This month’s issue has been entirely helpful. The piece on sexual assault helped me the most. I have dealt with sexual assault and I wish that I had access to this article after it happened. This article can and will help many individuals.”

—Wake Technical Community College, North Carolina
