Sexual Assault Working Group (SAWG)

Rob Hradsky, dean of students and assistant vice president of Campus Life, chairs the Sexual Assault Working Group (SAWG). The group is charged with (1) ensuring continuity in sexual assault prevention commitments and (2) continuing to shape AU's intervention strategies consistent with the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault and the Violence Against Women Act Reauthorization Act of 2013. The committee's work is transparent, as are the data gathered on students' experiences with sexual violence and on the effectiveness of the measures we implement.

Know Your IX

Know Your IX is a campaign that aims to educate all college students in the U.S. about their rights under Title IX. Armed with information, sexual violence survivors will be able to advocate for themselves during their schools' grievance proceedings and, if Title IX guarantees are not respected, file a complaint against their colleges with the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights. Visit the Know Your IX website for more information.

In addition to the Know Your IX website, here's a short video that will show you 9 things to know about Title IX in 89 seconds!
