At the Board of Trustees’ University Affairs committee meeting, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Winston Crisp pointed out the work UNC has done to address Title IX and sexual violence issues.
The University’s new policy rolled out at the beginning of the school year, but Crisp said administrators are still working hard to finish out those cases that began under the old policy.
The new policy requires mandatory training for faculty and students. Crisp said he expects all employees to complete the modules soon.
Crisp said they are still in the early stages with the student training, as students received notification of it Jan. 12.
He also cited the University’s decision to participate in a controversial sexual assault climate survey by the Association of American Universities.
Chancellor Carol Folt said the AAU wanted to share best practices, create a survey and look at the results to see what was working.
Besides addressing issues of sexual assault, Crisp said the University just completed a review of a national study on hazing and plans to look at hazing in the Greek community, clubs and athletic teams. He and Provost Jim Dean are also working on a campus-wide group that will research best practices and policies to address binge drinking and substance abuse.
