This independent study examined student’s perceptions of Title IX policies at The College of Wooster. Specifically, I examine the knowledge of College of Wooster students about reporting procedures for cases of sexual assault, intimate partner violence and other sexual misconduct policy violations. I also explore the College’s Title IX training and policy’s perceived effectiveness by students. The study concluded through a survey sent out to College of Wooster students that all participants felt mostly neutral towards their education, familiarity, clarity, and feelings of campus climate around Title IX. This means that no students found their training to be very effective, clear, or helpful in preventing events of sexual misconduct.
