Webinar: When Social Media & Title IX Collide Beck Hall 121

Webinar Overview:

Social media and its effects are a reality for every college student. Unfortunately, social media is not always used for the common good. When abused for the purpose of spreading rumors, gossip, and hateful language across campus, student conduct officers, counselors, and student affairs administrators are faced with a wide array of serious challenges.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Discuss how a social media post becomes a Title IX issue
  • Explore the ways a student's right to free speech collides with insulting or slanderous statements towards other campus members
  • Discover ways to address teasing and bullying through student conduct code
  • Learn the specifics of cyberbullying terminology, usage, and the specific gossip websites currently popular among college students
  • Realize that generational diversity (Millennial students, Generation X students, and Baby Boomer administrators) may play a role and needs to be considered
