Title IX Other Resources to Consider

On-Campus Resources

Mandatory Reporters

Mandatory reporters are trained in being a first responder for students facing Title IX related issues and provide support to individuals who meet with them. To ensure a student is safe and has all campus options available to them, mandatory reporters are required to report Title IX related concerns to the Title IX Coordinator. The Title IX Coordinator will then reach out to the student to discuss the process and options available to them to prevent, end, and remedy the harassment.

STRIVE Organization

Wayne State College received a grant from the Department of Justice (DOJ) meant to help colleges and universities create effective, comprehensive prevention and response efforts to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking (DVSAS). Activities of this project (STRIVE) include increased training for staff, education for students, and more victim-oriented services. Students are encouraged to become involved by training to be a workshop facilitator or participating in a student advisory council (forming Fall 2023).
