Support Services - Gender Identity, Sexual Health, and Positive Relationships

July 2020 marks the beginning of a new era for serving and supporting students at RIT around issues of gender identity, sexual health, and positive relationships. 

We have made a few shifts, as we respond to new federal regulations for Title IX which includes sexual harassment and sexual violence (sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking), growing needs to support students around gender-based issues and gender identity, and a hope to evolve our capacity for collaborative and intersectional approaches to student engagement.
