Educational Programming

The Title IX Office offers educational programming for student groups and organizations upon request. Programs can be tailored to your needs or you may pick from the programs below. If you aren’t sure what exactly you or your group would like to do, make an appointment to speak with the Title IX Coordinator and a program can be customized to your needs. Topics for programming include: Stalking, Relationship Violence, Healthy/Unhealthy Relationships, Sexual Assault, Bystander Intervention, and much more. Below are some workshops already offered on campus, some are offered in-person and others are available on the web:

In-Person Programming

Escalation Workshop – 90 min
Escalation is a research based, powerful, emotionally-engaging 90-minute film based workshop that educates our community about relationship violence and empowers us to work for change. This program is led by trained facilitators on campus and can be done for any size group.

#AskMe – 90 min
#AskMe is Union’s own bystander initiative that is aimed at building a community that is respectful of each other’s boundaries and is intolerant to sexual misconduct and violence. This program provides an overview of campus policy and expectations, offers the opportunity to have honest discussions about alcohol and its impact, as well as frank discussion about consent and stepping up for others.

Title IX, Policy, and Prevention – 60 min
This program is an overview of Title IX, Union’s Sexual Misconduct Policy and the basics of prevention on campus. Great introduction to what the Title IX Coordinator does on campus and what the expectations are for our community.

Title IX and Reporting Options– 60 min
This program focuses more on the process after sexual misconduct has occurred and covers the basics of making a report and the options that one has both on and off campus.

Web-based Programming

In addition to in-person workshops, Union offers online programming for students. There programs are offered to first year students and student leaders and can be accessed via the links below.

Campus Clarity - Think About It
All first year students are asked to complete a tool prior to their arrival on campus. This tool, offered by Campus Clarity, is called Think About It. It offers introductory information about policy and sexual misconduct on campus. All first year students receive the link and login information with their orientation information. For questions or if you need more information about completing this program, please contact: Dean of First Year Students, Kate Schurick, schurick@union.edu.

Title IX Student Leader Training
New York State Education Law requires that student leaders participate in programming about sexual assault prevention and bystander intervention. To achieve this requirement, students can participate in a self-guided, web-based program on Nexus. This program is available to all students and can be completed via the link above.

If you would like to custom design a program, would like the Title IX Coordinator to present at a program or for a class, please contact Melissa Kelley, kelleym2@union.edu or call (518) 388-6865 to discuss your program needs.
