The Office of Title IX Compliance presented a dating violence awareness program on Oct. 31 in the Houston Harte University Center.

The organizers of the event aimed to educate students on early warning signs of dating violence that may be present in unhealthy relationships.

A few students performed scenarios that demonstrated examples of manipulation, threats, control actions and distribution of explicit photos.

"If people are going through any of the scenarios we performed, I want them to know that there are people who will help them out," Kaylor Reiter, sophomore, said.

Morgan Jupiter, junior, wrote the script and helped plan the event.

Representatives of Title IX said they want students and faculty to report anything regarding sexual harassment, gender discrimination, sexual assault, domestic, dating and interpersonal violence, public indecency, sexual exploitation and stalking.

"We are here to help and support students with their needs so that they can continue to be well-equipped students," Michelle Boone, director of Title IX, said. "When we see more prevalent issues on campus, we do programs to help educate the student population on what is going on."

The Office of Title IX Compliance will present an interactive escalation film workshop on Nov. 7 from 5:30-7 p.m. in the Vista Verde Room in the Plaza Verde clubhouse.

"There are people who actually care to help," sophomore Emma Oaks said. "It may be hard to speak up, but in the end, there are people who will genuinely help someone in need."

Title IX addresses all violations that are reported through a formal process.

If you or someone you know is involved in a relationship where dating violence is occurring, contact the Title IX office at 325-942-2022.

Complaints can be filed through the Title IX web page or by visiting the Title IX office in Room 200 of the Mayer Administration Building. You can also talk to a counselor at the Counseling Center or call ASU’s 24-hour crisis helpline at 325-486-6345. Both options are confidential.

If you feel you’re in immediate danger, notify the ASU Police Department at 325-942-2071.
