Title IX for Study Abroad

What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects individuals from discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity operated by recipients of federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment, acts of sexual violence, domestic violence and stalking are forms of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay does not tolerate and will provide all remedies available to victims of any violation of Title IX. Under no circumstances will employment, participation in educational program or other campus activity be denied basis of gender and gender identification.
 

Procedure at UWGB

  • Those who believe they are victims, or who have received a report of or witnessed an incident of relationship violence or sexual harassment, have several options for reporting the incident:
    • The individual may elect not to report

At UDD we have; the support office a unit dependent on the Office of Student Experience and Development that has two main objectives, firstly, to be a channel of complaints in cases of sexual harassment, gender violence, and arbitrary discrimination, but also to promote a culture associated to the behaviors of good treatment, respect and a healthy coexistence.

For UDD all behaviors related to any of the aforementioned topics (sexual harassment, gender violence, and arbitrary discrimination) are totally prohibited and are considered abusive and unacceptable in our university community. One of the central axes, in most situations related to sexual harassment, gender violence, and arbitrary discrimination, is the abuse of alcohol and drugs, for this reason, the University wanted to take an active role in this regard, not endorsing activities or actions in which our students end up risking their integrity and/or that of others. In this same line, we hold talks and workshops throughout the semester with the aim of increasing awareness, and educating, therefore, we take preventive measures to provide our students with tools that allow personal care and the care of others.

Unfortunately the website is in Spanish, but this department is talked about and the information is shared with the students during the welcome activity. So if there were a situation, they would know where to look for help, and of course, they can always come to talk to the international office there for advice and guidance.

Counselling Information
Study abroad students are welcome to use the University’s counselling services. As there may be a waiting period before a student can see a counsellor, students may also wish to take advantage of private counselling sessions offered by places like First Psychology Aberdeen. Students will need to pay for treatment upfront and seek reimbursement from their insurance company. Students should confirm whether or not their insurance company will cover treatment.

There is no health centre on campus as students spending more than six months in the UK register with a local doctor via the National Health Service (NHS). Students spending less than six months (e.g., semester only study abroad students) are not eligible for treatment via the NHS. Therefore, they will need to use Aberdeen’s private hospital, Albyn Hospital which is located at 21-24 Albyn Pl, AB10 1RW, Tel: 01224 595993.

All students are eligible for treatment via the NHS if they experience an emergency (e.g., broken limb, loss of consciousness, etc.). The local NHS hospital emergency room is Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, Foresterhill Road, AB25 2ZN. For emergencies, students should call 111

Counselling Service  
 

Scotland (University of Stirling)

At the University of Stirling, we are committed to taking all steps in our power to prevent and tackle sexual violence from rape and sexual assault to harassment or stalking. We want to encourage a culture of respect and create a university community that does not tolerate – and feels comfortable to challenge and report – sexual violence in Scottish society.

If a student, staff member or visitor to our University does experience sexual violence, we can help them whilst making sure they stay in control of their options.

If they require urgent assistance and the situation is an emergency, they should do the following:
  • If the person is off campus, they should call 999 to reach any of the emergency services
  • If the person is on campus, they should call the Security Team any time, 24/7 on extension 2222 (on an internal phone) or 01786 467999 to request the Police.
  • If the person needs an ambulance, they should dial 999 directly to speak to a call handler. They should then call the Security Team on extension 2222 or 01786 467999 to let them know that an ambulance will be arriving
If the person wants to talk to someone, they can speak with one of our Sexual Violence and Misconduct Liaison Officers (SVMLOs). These members of staff have been trained in taking disclosures and supporting people who have been affected by sexual violence. They can provide crucial referrals to other services such as the local Sexual Assault Referral Centre, Rape Crisis Scotland and the Police if required.
  • If the student would like to contact an SVMLO, they should complete this simple Sexual Violence and Misconduct Referral Form and send it to svmlo@stir.ac.uk. They can also connect with an SVMLO by contacting the Student Services Hub on 01786 466022.
  • Students also have the option of reporting the incident of sexual violence officially to the University directly to Student Discipline, or the Police and we can support them in doing this if they choose to do so.
Other sources of support:
  1. Student Support Services at Stirling University have a Counselling team, and a Mental Health Advice team which students can access. The registration form and further information about these services can be found here;
  2. The Archway Centre in Glasgow is our local Sexual Assault Referral Centre. This is a  specialist service which is open to anyone who is aged 13 years or over who have been raped or sexually assaulted in the last 7 days. This service can provide forensic examination, a sexual health screen, emergency contraception and pregnancy testing, and support and counselling;
  3. Forth Valley Rape Crisis Centre can provide support and advocacy for anyone aged over 13 years old living in the Forth Valley area of Scotland.
  4. Our Deputy Secretary and Executive Director of Student, Academic and Corporate Services is Joanna Morrow.

United Kingdom (London Internship)


At Anglo Educational Services as each case is different and depends on student issues and insurance, they do not usually provide information to the student for this unless they request the school intervene. The only thing they do is recommend Roc Clinic - https://www.rocprivateclinic.com/ - as they work with all American insurance providers. From there, they would usually make a recommendation or referral and Anglo Education will work with the student to get this approved by the insurance company.​
