The Title IX Office is continuously working with student groups, campus partners, and community organizations to provide ongoing, student-driven events, workshops, and training around sexual violence prevention and response.

- Trauma-Informed Writing Workshop
This workshop draws on mindfulness techniques and meditation philosophy as a framework for writing practice. Participants are encouraged to safely explore difficult experiences on the page through four "pillars of practice," which focus on breath, self-talk, narrative, and discomfort. Groups are intentionally kept small in order to honor the privacy of participants and create space for vulnerability. All sharing is voluntary and not a requisite aspect of the workshop; this is a non-performative space where all types of participation are recognized.
The next workshop series will open in November 2021.
- STIX Leaders
Student Title IX Leaders demonstrate a foundational belief in gender equity. Acting as liaisons between the Title IX Office and the campus community, STIX Leaders are representatives of diverse student experiences. These student leaders have strong connections with existing student groups, and help our office to develop, implement, and publicize programming around sex, consent, healthy relationships, boundaries, resiliency, and trauma-informed care. The STIX Leaders program is a peer-led, self-directed group supported by Title IX staff.
The Title IX Office seeks to empower STIX Leaders to:
- Create and implement campus-wide programming
- Facilitate difficult conversations
- Act as advocates for all students on campus, specifically within their communities of interest
- Understand the TIX process
- Communicate the TIX process to the student community
- Promote the health and well-being of everyone at Swat
The next STIX Leader application cycle will open in October 2021.
