Letter to the editor

(05/04/17 3:17am)

Thank you for your Apr. 25 editorial on sexual assault. The more attention brought to the issue, the better. However, the editorial does not accurately reflect Duke’s efforts to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct. Even a cursory reading of the results of the recent Student Experiences Survey shows that sexual assault on campus IS “complex and systemic,” with prevention therefore requiring a multi-faceted approach. Contrary to the editorial’s assertion that our initiatives burden the victim, programs such as PACT, Haven, Haven Plus, Party Monitor, Let’s Talk Consent, 50 Shades of…an Unhealthy Relationship, and It’s Your Move, educate students about the importance of consent, bystander intervention, and healthy relationships.

On Title IX compliance

(02/25/15 10:11am)

I am Duke’s new Director of Title IX Compliance and I would like to introduce myself and share a bit about what Duke is doing in this area. I coordinate the University’s compliance with Title IX, the Violence Against Women Act,and the University’s own policies and procedures. This includes requirements regarding education, prevention, and response to sexual harassment (including sexual or gender based violence), domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. Title IX and University policies cover much more, though—they prohibit discrimination based on sex in classrooms, in athletics and in every other facet of the University’s programs and activities.
