OFFER SUPPORT AS A FACULTY OR STAFF MEMBER

AS A FACULTY OR STAFF MEMBER

It may feel strange or intimidating to discuss the details of a student’s private life, especially in an academic setting. However, don’t reject your student’s attempt to reach out to you. Be supportive, suggest resources, and be clear with the student about any school policies that make it necessary for you to alert the administration, public safety, or health services about the assault.

If a student discloses a Title IX related incident to you, it is important that you notify your supervisor and the University’s Title IX Coordinator as soon as possible.

Trusted faculty members, including coaches, residence hall advisors, religious leaders and advisors are often the first person to which a student will report their assault. Empower yourself to be an ally by learning key policies and procedures survivors may need.
Faculty and staff should familiarize themselves specifically with the Board of Governor’s Policy 14 –Sexual Harassment.
 
Title IX Training
You can request an in-person Title IX training by contacting the Title IX office at (304) 766-3156.

Anonymous Resources
If you wish to speak to someone anonymously, please call the Title IX On-Call Line at (304) 533-5392. Someone is available to take your call, twenty-four hours a day. 
While the staff who answer the Title IX On-Call line serve as anonymous resources for all students, faculty and staff, please note that under most circumstances they cannot discuss specific cases with third parties – such as friends and family – due to the students’ rights under FERPA.
