Title IX Policy and Procedure
Title IX Update
July 20, 2020
Campbellsville University is continuing to work to meet the needs of the newest federal Title IX regulations, released in early May, 2020. We are revising and updating institutional policies to ensure compliance by the effective date of August 14, 2020. The University is also looking to expand its educational and prevention efforts regarding sex discrimination and sexual violence. Given current uncertainties due to the pandemic, an emphasis on virtual participation in these events is a concept that is currently being explored.
COVID-19 continues to disrupt our plans and causes us to take stock of how we serve our campus community. It is imperative that responses to this pandemic be swift yet flexible. With new state and federal mandates being released on a near daily basis, the way in which Campbellsville University responds to and investigates complaints of sexual misconduct will also need to adapt during this national emergency. We ask for your patience as we seek to respond in meaningful ways to developments related to this pandemic. The University is committed to ensuring that our Title IX policies and procedures rise to the changing needs of the entire campus community. As such, the Title IX office will utilize enhanced and/or adapted methods for conducting investigations. These include:
- The launch of the online reporting form – accessible to the entire campus community, which can be found below
- Use of virtual meeting technology (Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams, etc.)
- Continued access to support resources and personnel who are working remotely
- Individualized communication plans
It is critical that faculty, staff, coaches, and students understand that the virtual delivery of the University’s educational programs still falls within the jurisdiction of the SMP. The educational setting of Campbellsville University is defined as “All of the School’s academic programs and other activities of whatever nature on campus and at every other location where the School conducts authorized programs or activities” (SMP, 2019, p. 12).
