Building Supportive Communities: Clery Act & Title IX
Appalachian State University values fostering a campus community that is safe and promotes the well-being of all individuals. Gender discrimination, sexual violence, and relationship violence, collectively “Prohibited Conduct,” are counter to our values institutionally. To support our commitment to maintaining an inclusive and safe environment for all Mountaineers, Appalachian has policies and procedures available to all students, faculty, staff, guests, and visitors to ensure every person is provided support, information, and resources to address any misconduct, redress its effects, and prevent its recurrence.
To continue to build upon efforts to prevent and respond to incidents of gender and sexual harassment and violence, Appalachian is implementing a required online training program, Building Supportive Communities: Clery Act & Title IX.
This training initiative is the result of requests from faculty and staff for enhanced information regarding reporting student concerns via self-paced training. This is the first installment of a multi-layered educational effort regarding topics of interpersonal violence to Title IX Mandatory Reporters, formerly known as Responsible Employees.
