The University of Iowa has reviewed the new guidance on Title IX compliance from the Department of Education. We do not foresee any changes in our policies under the temporary guidance.
We remain committed to ending sexual violence and sexual misconduct and will continue to work with campus and community partners to that end, as well as ensure survivors know they are believed, supported, and assisted. There is absolutely no place for sexual misconduct and violence on the UI campus.
Progress continues to be made on the UI Anti-Violence Plan for sexual misconduct, dating violence, and stalking: https://osmrc.uiowa.edu/anti-violence-coalition/anti-violence-plan
The UI is also preparing to administer the Speak Out Iowa campus climate survey again in fall 2017. We look forward to hearing again from the campus community on this important issue.
