University issues update on Title IX policy

By Daily Illini Staff Report

“As we begin a new semester, I want to make sure that you are aware of the resources available to help educate about, prevent, support those impacted by, and respond to sexual misconduct,” Romano said.

The email encouraged students to visit the University’s We Care website, where they can find “information about confidential and non-confidential resources, reporting options, university policies, and disciplinary procedures.”

The email also announced that Assistant Dean Amy Thomson — who helped the University establish the We Care website — was appointed as the interim Title IX Coordinator.

Romano said she is confident in the strength of the University’s “resources, policies, and procedures we have established to address sexual misconduct on our campus” and an appreciation for the students’ help on “this very important issue.”
