In accordance with the Federal law mandating all university personnel to successfully complete Title IX compliance each academic year, Missouri Southern has scheduled in-person and online sessions for all faculty and staff members.

Sessions for new-hires will be offered at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 6, in the BSC Ballroom. All other employees may attend refresher training at 11 a.m., 11:30 a.m., noon and 12:30 p.m. All sessions will feature a video presentation facilitated by one of the university’s Title IX investigators.

For those unable to attend, training will also be offered online through Blackboard. Log in at and select “Organizations” on the left navigation bar, then “HR Training IX Training” from the listings. The online sessions incorporate an interactive quiz. A score of 100 percent is required to pass the module–if an employee scores less, he or she will need to restart the video and try again.

Both new-hire and refresher training courses are available on Blackboard.
