The Office for Student Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct will host two virtual events, “Tech Talks Title IX” and “Sex Signals.”

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise public awareness about sexual assault and educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence. In light of this, Texas Tech University's Office for Student Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct, responsible for Title IX, and the Risk Intervention and Safety Education Office (RISE) have partnered together to coordinate several campus-wide events. The Office for Student Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct is hosting two virtual events, “Tech Talks Title IX” and “Sex Signals.”

“Tech Talks Title IX” is a virtual opportunity for the Texas Tech campus community to ask questions about Title IX at the university. It will be held at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday (April 13) via Zoom. Click here to register.

“Sex Signals,” a virtual violence prevention presentation, will be held at 7 p.m. April 19 and 20 via Zoom. “Sex Signals” is one of the most popular sexual assault prevention programs created for college campuses. Actors facilitate an interactive presentation through their unorthodox, humor-facilitated and inclusive approach to examining the cultural messaging we receive about gender, sexuality and intimate relationships.

“The purpose of Title IX is to continue our work toward a goal of a campus free of gender- and sex-based harassment and discrimination,” said Kimberly Simón, Title IX administrator. “Unfortunately, we know this will always be a work in progress. Our team is committed to responding to each incident with support and compassion, giving survivors the control for how they would like to respond, and ensuring each person fully understands their rights and resources available to them at Texas Tech. We hope the community will join us at these events to learn more about the ways the university can assist you and to have any questions answered about our process.”
