Title IX: Employee Statement

The Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS) values our relationships with Miami’s faculty and we appreciate you supporting the needs of our students. If you are interested in including information about Title IX in your syllabi, we developed a short statement below which you can copy and paste.

Title IX: Confidentiality and Responsible Employee Statement

Miami University faculty are committed to helping create a safe and open learning environment for all students. If you (or someone you know) have experienced any form of sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, dating or domestic violence, or stalking, know that help and support are available. Miami University strongly encourages all members of the community to take action, seek support, and report incidents of sexual misconduct. You may contact the Deputy Title IX Coordinator at titleix@MiamOH.edu or learn more by visiting https://www.miamioh.edu/student-life/office-of-dean/support-services/title-ix/index.html.

Please be aware that under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, I am required to disclose information about such misconduct to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator (for sexual misconduct involving students) and to the Title IX Coordinator (for sexual misconduct involving faculty and staff). Title IX Coordinators will reach out to offer information on resources, rights, and procedural options after receiving a report. 

If you wish to speak to a confidential employee who does not have this reporting responsibility, you can contact Student Counseling Service at 513-529-4634 to schedule an appointment. For more information about reporting options and resources at Miami University and in the community, please visit https://www.miamioh.edu/campus-safety/sexual-assault/resource-guide/index.html.
