Violence Against Women Act Online Training

In order to stay compliant with the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), staff, faculty and students are federally required to complete a one-time training that will help awareness of Title IX issues on campus. This initiative directly supports the University Anti-Harassment policy which states in part: Davenport University strives to create and maintain a positive work environment in which people are treated with dignity, decency and respect. The policy of Davenport University is to provide an environment free from harassment and unlawful discrimination on the basis of national origin, race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, disability, gender identity, veteran or other protected status. Such harassment or discrimination does harm to those to experience it, is a violation of this policy, interferes with the fulfillment of our mission and therefore, will not be tolerated.

Reflection on Stigma and Inclusion

Many years ago I attended a conference where many of the workshops focused on diversity in the family and in the workplace. I was very impressed by the speakers who, at the closing of one workshop, provided a self-test for the attendees to take regarding the level of prejudice in our minds. Did we feel differently about people of other races, cultures, ages, religions, sexual orientations? I aced the self-test and set off to dinner and the keynote presentation.
