South Dakota State University has a well-established commitment to maintaining a campus environment free from discrimination and harassment, which is essential to the health of our campus. The Office of Title IX/EO maintains a people-centered focus that supports a positive University culture and aids success in educational and employment goals. Office employees act with integrity through impartial, respectful and ethical investigations. Office employees sustain diversity by ensuring that individuals' rights are maintained.
A primary component of the University’s ongoing commitment is mandatory Title IX/EO training. Training about these important issues is articulated in federal regulations, state law and University policy. All faculty, staff and students receive an e-mail notice to complete training each year. The training includes information about responding to and reporting concerns, bystander intervention strategies and ways to maintain the respectful environment that all members of our University community expect.
The Office of Title IX/Equal Opportunity offers in person training sessions. For more information, please contact us at 605-688-4128 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
