The faculty senate met Monday with guest speakers from Office of Justice, Civil Rights and Title IX (ECRT) to discuss the health of students and faculty during the COVID-19 pandemic.

ECRT Deputy Director Tanesia White, who oversees the Teacher Discrimination Investigation Unit, spoke in the Senate of the faculty about the new changes that have taken place in the ECRT. These changes include hiring an assistant director who works with a capital specialist, and updating the ECRT website to showcase updated resources and policies.

“For the most part, the ECRT is tasked with responding to concerns about harassment, discrimination and sexual behavior,” White said. “The new ECRT structure facilitates the resolution of sexual, protected class discrimination and discrimination with disabilities.”
