Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence, Stalking, and Retaliation
Our Title IX Commitment
The University of Tennessee is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and non-discriminatory learning, living, and working environment free from sexual misconduct, relationship violence, stalking, and retaliation.
The Office of Title IX was established in 2017 by Chancellor Beverly Davenport to provide a comprehensive community approach to the institution’s Title IX responsibility. Under the direction of the Title IX Coordinator, Title IX team members, housed in critical areas across campus, work collaboratively to educate the campus community, prevent incidents, support those in need, and address Title IX-related concerns.
We utilize the Center for Disease Control’s Social-Ecological Model as our framework and work to ensure our institutional commitment through:
- Our Policy
- Education & Prevention
- Support & Interim Measures
- Investigation & Resolution
- Patterns & Trends
The University of Tennessee is hosting a statewide Title IX Summit, which will be held in Knoxville on April 26, 2018. The Summit is the culmination of the University of Tennessee’s 2015 Office on Violence Against Women Three-Year Grant to Reduce Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking on Campus Program.
The University of Tennessee is excited to share with Tennessee colleges and universities programs, trainings, resources, and lessons learned in creating a coordinated community response to sexual violence.
