The WRC would like to take a moment today to personally thank Colleen Ritchie. For those that don't know, Colleen Ritchie is the one responsible for making the Student Giving Campaign possible. Her generosity provided the funds that 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place received for participating in the campaign (a total of $3,500). On top of that, Colleen also agreed to match all Tel-Alumni donations 1-to-1. This gave the WRC an extra $1,393 to donate to our cause.

Thank you so much Colleen! Your generosity will not go unnoticed!

Title IX

Title IX is an educational amendment from 1972 that was designed to limit discrimination by sex and sexual harassment in public schools and other government funded institutions. This means that schools are prohibited from participation of activities based on sex. If a school is in violation of Title IX, a claim may be filed that could limit the federal funding to the school.

Truman’s Title IX Coordination and Administrative Officer is Jamie Ball.

  • Office: McClain Hall, 101-Human Resources
  • Telephone Number: (660) 785-4031
  • Email Address: jball@truman.edu

The duties and responsibilities of the Administrative Officer include monitoring and overseeing the overall implementation of Title IX compliance at the University, including training, education, communication, and coordination of reports and complaints of discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct for faculty, staff, students, volunteers, and visitors of the University community.
Jamie Ball also oversees the Women’s Resource Center!

Obligations of Truman under Title IX

  • Once a school knows or reasonably should know of possible sexual violence, it must take immediate and appropriate action to investigate or otherwise determine what occurred.
  • If sexual violence has occurred, a school must take prompt and effective steps to end the sexual violence, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects, whether or not the sexual violence is the subject of a criminal investigation.
  • A school must take steps to protect the complainant as necessary, including interim steps taken prior to the final outcome of the investigation.
  • A school must provide a grievance procedure for students to file complaints of sex discrimination, including complaints of sexual violence. These procedures must include an equal opportunity for both parties to present witnesses and other evidence and the same appeal rights.
  • A school’s grievance procedures must use the preponderance of the evidence standard to resolve complaints of sex discrimination.
  • A school must notify both parties of the outcome of the complaint.
