How Technology May Boost Title IX Education On Campus

Posted by Joseph D. Lento | Jan 09, 2019 | 0 Comments

It's no secret that sexual misconduct is rampant in higher education. The statistics are staggering. So much so that they've pushed governments on local, state, and federal levels to prioritize an initiative to deter this misconduct on college and university campuses. Title IX of the Education Amendments is the federal government's proposed solution to sexual misconduct on campus. Due to Title IX guidance drafted by previous administrations, schools have been obligated to take a more proactive role in resolution by leading adjudication when complaints alleging this behavior are expressed. Right now, under the leadership of Betsy DeVos, we're in the midst of drastic reform of this law that could change Title IX as we know it. A move that makes the already complex law even more messy and difficult to grasp.

College and university students are most impacted by Title IX developments and enforcement, so it makes sense that they understand its ins and outs. But recent surveys and research reveals that many students are still in the dark about the law and its implications. Previous administrations have attempted to close the gap by kicking off national awareness campaigns, while some schools took it upon themselves to develop their own programs to educate students about the law. But unfortunately, despite these efforts, the number of complaints alleging sexual misconduct continues to gradually increase.

But the fight isn't over just yet. Mobile application developers are putting their best foot forward to help smartphone obsessed students understand Title IX. While it is still a fresh idea, a few schools are attempting to figure out ways to implement an approach that could incorporate both Title IX and technology. Of course, they won't be used to replace other resources like prevention programs, presentations, lectures, and discussions that already ensue on campus, but reinforce them.

U of Nine

One of the more popular apps geared towards Title IX education is called “U of Nine.” For its contents, app developers have assembled experts and legal professionals revered in higher education to review and create. Within the app, students can take quizzes concerning Title IX, complete discussions, and even complete assignments. Some schools have already decided to use the application to spread awareness to hard-to-reach audiences.
