As your instructor, one of my responsibilities is to create a positive learning environment for all students. Title IX and IUÕs Sexual Misconduct Policy prohibit sexual misconduct in any form, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, and dating and domestic violence. If you have experienced sexual misconduct, or know someone who has, the University can help.
If you are seeking help and would like to speak to someone confidentially, you can make an appointment with:
Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) at 317-274-2548 (counseling services)
Confidential Advocacy Resources at 317-274-2503 (advocacy and advice services)
IUPUI Student Health Center at 317-274-2274 (University Blvd. location) or
317-274-8214 (West Michigan St. location) (health and medical services)
It is also important that you know that Title IX and University policy require me to share any information brought to my attention about potential sexual misconduct, with the campus Deputy Title IX Coordinator or IUÕs Title IX Coordinator. In that event, those individuals will work to ensure that appropriate measures are taken and resources are made available. Protecting student privacy is of utmost concern, and information will only be shared with those that need to know to ensure the University can respond and assist.
