Prevention, Education and Training

The College recognizes that the most effective way to achieve a campus free of sexual harassment, discrimination, and violence, including sexual violence, stalking, and relationship violence, is to equip all College community members with the skills to recognize and prevent sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. The College wants to ensure that all members of the College community understand and participate in shared standards of equity, inclusion, civility, and respect.

In order to achieve these goals, the College offers regular programs of prevention and ongoing education and awareness for all students and employees. Employees who play a key role in implementing the policy, including those faculty and staff who are likely to receive reports of sexual harassment, discrimination, and violence, including sexual violence, stalking, and domestic violence, receive more in-depth annual training to ensure a timely, sensitive, respectful, and effective intuitional response.

The College is committed to ensuring that all employees understand how to respond to reports of sexual misconduct.  All new students and all new employees will be provided with education in prevention and awareness of sexual and/or gender harassment, discrimination, and violence, including sexual violence, stalking, and domestic violence.

The education programs will include:

  • A statement that the College prohibits sexual harassment, discrimination, and violence, including sexual violence, stalking, and domestic violence;
  • The definition of prohibited conduct, including sexual harassment, discrimination, and violence, including sexual violence, stalking, and domestic violence, under College policy and state law;
  • The definition of consent in reference to sexual activity under College policy and state law;
  • A description of safe and positive options for bystander intervention;
  • Information on risk reduction;
  • Information on how to recognize warning signs of abusive behavior in order to mitigate the likelihood of preparation, victimization, or bystander inaction;
  • Options and resources for reporting sexual harassment, discrimination, and violence, including sexual violence, stalking, and domestic violence.


All students, staff, and faculty will receive regular opportunities to review this information, become acquainted with new policies and best practices, and practice key skills.

Training and education may be provided by appropriately trained campus personnel and/or external parties.

The Sinclair Title IX Coordinator is responsible for oversight, coordination, and assessment of prevention and training programs on campus in collaboration with the appropriate departments and personnel. The Sinclair Title IX Coordinator will review education and prevention programs on an annual basis to ensure quality and address staffing and resource needs.
