Title IX empowering students to end sexual violence
On Thursday, April 29 we were excited to have more than 50 people come together for our first Title IX Advisory Council meeting. Unfortunately, we were "Google bombed" by outside people that were disruptive with loud music, profanities, nudity and weapons. We had to immediately ask the community who had joined, to log off, and look for a follow up to this meeting for a chance to reschedule with a more secure link.
