Online Sexual Misconduct Training Released to UD Community

Online Sexual Misconduct Training Released to UD Community

The University of Delaware community will once again be engaging in online sexual misconduct policy and response training, provided by UD partner Everfi, and overseen by the Office of Equity & Inclusion. This introductory and ongoing training is part of the university’s commitment to provide all faculty, staff, and students with timely and relevant information and resources related to the university’s sexual misconduct policy, and sexual harassment and discrimination more broadly. All faculty, staff, and students receive a separate invitation directly from Everfi with instructions for access and completion.

All first-year undergraduate and graduate students complete the course entitled “Sexual Assault Prevention”. All new university employees complete the course entitled “Bridges: Building a Supportive Community”. Current university employees will complete the course “Bridges: Taking Action” during the Fall 2019 term as part of a biannual training requirement instituted with the passage of Delaware H.B. 360.

Questions about this online education opportunity can be directed to knowmore@udel.edu.

Fall 2019 Book Club Announced!

Fall 2019 Book Club Announced!

OEI’s ongoing book club returns this fall with a powerful and timely collection of essays addressing a wide array of multicultural feminist topics! We will be reading Roxane Gay’s New York Times Bestseller “Bad Feminist” and engaging in a timely discussion about a variety of issues along the way. In the era of #metoo, voices are no longer silent, stories are being told, and challenging conversations are no longer being avoided. This deeply personal, profoundly influential, and easily accessible collection of essays touches on everything from pop culture to politics. Along the way, Gay breaks down barriers and allows us to engage in the dialogue we so clearly need to be having today!

kNOw MORE Book Club Planned- April 2019

kNOw MORE Book Club Planned- April 2019

The University of Delaware kNOw MORE campaign is a reflection of the efforts by UD faculty, staff, and students to stand up, participate, and help to raise awareness about sexual misconduct and gender-based violence. Our goal is to create and foster an environment where sexual misconduct in any form is unacceptable and survivors are supported.

As a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month during April, the campaign will be sponsoring a book club as a means of providing open and honest conversation about sexual assault and rape culture more broadly. We will be reading Kate Harding’s widely acclaimed book, “Asking for It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture — And What We Can Do About It”.

In Asking for It, Kate Harding combines in-depth research with a frank, no-holds-barred voice to make the case that twenty-first-century America supports rapists more effectively than it supports victims. From institutional failures in higher education to real-world examples of rape culture, Harding offers ideas and suggestions for how we, as a society, can take sexual violence much more seriously without compromising the rights of the accused.

We will be meeting on the following two dates, and would love to have anyone in the university community join us for this important conversation!

Schedule:
4/10/19: 4:00pm- 5:30pm, Perkins Collins Room (Chapters 1-6)
4/25/19: 4:00pm- 5:30pm, Perkins Ewing Room (Chapters 7- 11)

The book can be purchased using the Amazon link below, and is also available from the University of Delaware library as an ebook. We will have a limited number of free copies available as well, and you can indicate your interest below.
