Please Join Us: Title IX Workshop

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students:

In August 2020, the U.S. Department of Education’s new Title IX regulations took effect. Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex ― including harassment ― in education programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment means conduct on the basis of sex that satisfies one or more of the following: A school employee conditioning education benefits on participation in unwelcome sexual conduct; or unwelcome conduct that a reasonable person would determine is so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the school's education program or activity; or sexual assault (as defined in the Clery Act), dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking as defined in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

As a result of this change, NEOMED updated the University’s Sexual Harassment Under Title IX policy to remain compliant. The new regulations also resulted in changes to NEOMED’s Title IX processes. In order to make sure everyone on campus is aware of the current regulations and policies by which all students, faculty and staff must abide, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is requiring all faculty and staff to attend a live Title IX workshop with Title IX coordinator, Molly O’Malley.

The workshop will be informational and instructional, providing details on how to report an incident and what happens next. The workshop will also offer chances to participate in scenarios, learn how to be an active bystander, and ask any questions you may have.  Both virtual and in-person sessions will be made available.  Students are not required to attend the live session due to the online Title IX training requirements already in place, but they are strongly encouraged and welcome to attend the workshops.

Faculty and staff must attend one of the sessions below. You will receive a calendar invite after you register.

Please contact Molly O’Malley at with questions.


Molly O’Malley, M.S.
Associate Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Title IX Coordinator
