Other related trainings are also available for West Virginia University faculty and staff:

All faculty and staff at West Virginia University are considered responsible employees. This means that when a Title IX related incident is disclosed to them, they must report it to the University to ensure the individual’s safety. Counselors and pastoral staff are exempt from this and maintain a confidential status. Title IX Education Specialists and WVU Peer Advocates are considered private resources, meaning that they do not report specific cases to the University, only demographic/non-identifying information that can be used in West Virginia University’s Annual Campus Security Report.

If you wish to speak to someone anonymously, please call the Title IX On-Call Line at (304) 906-9930. Someone is available to take your call, twenty-four hours a day.

WVU Peer Advocates

Get involved and make a difference

West Virginia University signed onto the national It’s On Us campaign in 2015 to continue violence prevention efforts and reinforce Mountaineers’ rights under Title IX.

Under the It’s On Us campaign, the University coordinates the WVU Peer Advocate program. Through this initiative, expertly trained students work to end sexual assault and power-based personal violence on campus through immediate crisis intervention and prevention awareness events.

Any student is welcome and encouraged to become a WVU Peer Advocate and can become involved by contacting a Title IX Education Specialist.
