Title IX Training: Voices for Change
MiraCosta College is committed to student success and providing a safe and healthy campus environment. In an effort to keep yourself and our entire community safe, all students are required to complete a training module titled Voices for Change. The Voices for Change training module focuses on issues that we all need to be aware of so that we can take action to help create a safe and welcoming community. This training will provide you with information on how you can prevent and respond to interpersonal violence, including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. You will also learn about bystander intervention, what it means, when and how it should be applied, and some of the challenges you may encounter when it comes to stepping up and taking action, or intervening on behalf of your peers. For more information, please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
If you feel that you've been subjected to discrimination, MiraCosta has resources available that can help you. Contact the Title IX Coordinator or a Deputy Title IX Coordinator to file a complaint or find out what services MiraCosta has to offer.
