9 on Title IX

 

9 on Title IX 

  1. Our campus has specific policies under Title IX to address sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, domestic violence, and gender discrimination. 
     
  2. Students, faculty, and staff can make a report, acquire more information, or ask questions by reaching out to Title IX Coordinator Emma Morcone (she/her) at morconee@newpaltz.edu.  
     
  3. The role of the Title IX Coordinator includes receiving reports, facilitating trainings, providing support to survivors, and more. 
     
  4. Students can report Title IX incidents to following offices: Title IX Coordinator/HRDI, Psychological Counseling Center, Health Center, University Police Department, Department of Residence Life, and more. 
     
  5. We have the following resources for survivors: Psychological Counseling Center, Title IX Coordinator, Academic Support, Crime Victim Advocate, University Police, Student Conduct, and more. Students can expect these support measures even if they DON’T want to access a formal process. 
     
  6. Affirmative Consent is a knowing, voluntary, and mutual decision among all participants to engage in sexual activity. 
  7. If someone is incapacitated, they are NOT able to consent to a sexual act. 
     
  8. There is a difference between the college disciplinary process and criminal justice system. The college disciplinary process determines if there has been a violation of college policy, while the criminal justice system seeks to determine if there has been a criminal act. 

  9. We have an alcohol/drug use amnesty policy when reporting sexual violence (for bystanders and survivors)!
