Training: The Title IX Team

Concordia University Irvine will ensure that all Title IX Coordinators, investigators, and mandated responsible employees with the authority to address sexual violence are trained how to respond promptly, effectively, and appropriately to reports of sexual violence. The Title IX Team is trained through ongoing monthly meetings led by the Title IX Coordinators as well as annual trainings hosted by third-party companies.

As a part of the training of employees, Concordia University Irvine will ensure that professional counselors, pastoral counselors, and nonprofessional counselors also understand the extent to which they may keep a report confidential. These trainings will also ensure that all responsible employees know their obligation to report sexual violence to appropriate university officials.

Prevention: Bystander Intervention

If acts of violence against other individuals are observed, members of the Concordia University Irvine community have the option to intervene to help stop the act, only if it is safe and positive to do so without risking further harm. Suggested options include:

  • Dial 911.
  • Contact Campus Safety at: (949) 214-3000.
  • Witnesses can yell to draw attention to an act of violence from a safe distance in order to frighten off the perpetrator and remain in the area to provide witness information to the authorities.

Honor One Another Campaign

Honor One Another is a university-wide initiative to cultivate a wise and honorable campus community. The campaign is rooted in the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Rome in which he wrote, “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourself.” (Romans 12:10). With this in mind, Concordia strives to foster an environment in which its members value and respect one another and place their neighbor’s welfare above their own. Together as a campus, we are committed to building a community of caring, inclusive of our diverse population, and free from harassment, racism, sexism, and violence.
