Green Bandana Brigade

UW-Green Bay Statement on 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.

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination based on sex, gender and gender identification and provides a number of resources and services to assist students, faculty and staff in addressing issues involving sex discrimination, including sexual violence.

Sexual violence, sexual harassment, stalking and relationship violence have a profound impact on a victim's academic, social, working, and personal life, and negatively affects victims' friends and families, other students, co-workers, and members of the university community. To combat this complex social problem, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay provides a variety of resources and educational programs designed to prevent sexual violence and other acts of sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, provide information about what to do when an incident has occurred, and increase awareness of campus and community resources for support and response.

Victims of sexual violence, sexual harassment, stalking and relationship violence are encouraged to seek support and report the incident. The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has appointed a Title IX Coordinator to oversee the institutional response to Title IX complaints, develop training and education programs/materials for faculty, staff and students, as well as monitor trends and effectiveness of Title IX education efforts.

Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, otherwise known as the Clery Act requires institutions of higher education to comply with certain campus safety- and security-related requirements as a condition of their participation in the title IV, HEA programs. On March 7th, 2013, President Obama signed the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA) (Pub. L. 113-4), which, among other provisions, amended Clery deleting outdated deadlines and cross-references, and making other changes to improve the readability and clarity of the regulations. This act includes three parts: (maybe include three sections similar to the Clery Center page)

  1. Campus Crime Data
    The Jeanne Clery Act, a consumer protection law passed in 1990, requires all colleges and universities who receive federal funding to share information about crime on campus and their efforts to improve campus safety as well as inform the public of crime in or around campus. This information is made publicly accessible through the university's annual security report.

  2. Support for Victims
    Under the Act, institutions must provide survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking with options such as changes to academic, transportation, or living, or working situations, and assistance in notifying local law enforcement, if the student or employee chooses to do so. It also provides both parties in a campus disciplinary process certain rights

  3. Policies and Procedures
    Colleges and universities must outline specific policies and procedures within their annual security reports, including those related to disseminating timely warnings and emergency notifications, options for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, and campus crime reporting processes.
