Sexual Assault Prevention Training for Students
In April 2021, WSU’s Student Government Association issued a Resolution supporting
mandatory sexual assault prevention training for all students. This reflects Wichita
State University’s commitment to raising awareness and preventing sexual harassment
and discrimination within our community, and emphasizes that preventing sexual harassment
and discrimination is the responsibility of every WSU community member.
Preventing Harassment and Discrimination: Title IX and Clery Training for Employees
Mandatory Reporters / Campus Security Authority
Wichita State University is committed to a learning, living and working environment
that is safe and free of sex discrimination. The WSU community relies on the cooperation
of all employees and students to accomplish this goal.
Title IX is a federal law enacted in 1972 that prohibits sex discrimination in all
university student services and academic programs. Title IX also forbids discrimination
on the basis of sex in employment and recruitment for institutions receiving or benefiting
from federal financial assistance. The federal government has determined that employees
who have the authority to redress sexual violence, or whom a student could reasonably
believe has this authority, or employees who have been given the duty of reporting
incidents of sexual violence or any other misconduct, have an obligation to report
Title IX violations to appropriate university officials. These individuals also have
an obligation to provide resource information to the involved parties.
The Title IX Mandatory Reporter (Responsible Employee)/ Campus Security Authority
online training is approximately one hour. To take the training go to myWSU, select
the Faculty/Staff tab, select myTraining under the Quick Links channel, select Online
training, select the Title IX Responsible Employee and Campus Security Authority module,
select request, select launch. All Responsible Employees and Campus Security Authorities
are required to complete this training annually.
