How can study abroad professionals bring our perspective - which particularly values the opportunities presented by discomfort, ambiguity, and struggle in developing intercultural skills - to helping today’s young adults develop the resilience and independence that past generations were given the opportunity to learn at a much younger age?

ASAPI Title IX Information Session Thursday 15th October, 1.00 pm – 5.00 pm
Boston College, St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2 ASAPI invites its members to an introduction and discussion of Title IX, the US law under which all American institutions must abide, and where it intersects with Irish law. Topics will cover data collection and reporting, privacy, consent, direct response to students, bullying in the academic setting and in the internship workplace.
The format is an afternoon of panelists representing US and Irish third-level institutions and partners, the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, the Anti-Bullying Centre and others to be confirmed. There will be Q&A for each panelist, as well as a moderated members roundtable in the final session.
Although we all learn so much from our peers and from comparative experiences in our different institutions, this session is not a formal training workshop. Rather we hope at its conclusion to have formulated some core questions and common scenarios that can be presented to legal experts for clear guidance about Title IX and Irish law.
Space is limited to 45. Please register your interest with Thea Gilien.
