Title IX & Technology Update

FEATURED NEWS

Title IX Training

In May, the U.S. Department of Education unveiled “The Final Rule,” which changes how colleges and universities that receive federal funds must handle allegations of sexual assault and harassment under Title IX (TIX). The Final Rule makes all former TIX guidance obsolete and lays out a number of new provisions that schools must adhere to in the resolution of alleged violations of TIX policy. The Final Rule took effect on Aug. 14, 2020. Since May, the Roosevelt University TIX Team and the Office of Legal Counsel have been working to ensure full compliance with these new regulations. This includes revising Roosevelt University’s policies to conform to the new regulations before the effective date and the start of the fall 2020 semester.

Each member of the campus community is responsible for reading the updated policy and becoming familiar with the new regulations. To support you in understanding the new policy, we are providing Zoom training sessions during the month of September.

  • Thursday, September 17th, 3-4 PM
  • Tuesday, September 22nd, 12-1 PM
  • Monday, September 28th, 10-11 AM

To sign up for a TIX training session, please click TIX Training Sign Up.

Changes Coming to Roosevelt WiFi: Friday, September 25

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve your data security, changes are coming to our WiFi networks. Beginning Friday, September 25, the “RUWIFI”network will no longer be available in academic spaces (floors 13 or below in the Wabash building, and anywhere in the Auditorium Building or at Schaumburg). The “ruwireless” network will take its place in those areas, and will be the only way to connect in the future. We encourage you to switch to using the “ruwireless” network now so that you do not experience any interruptions in your WiFi service.

To connect to “ruwireless,” please take the following steps:

  • Connect to the “ruwireless” wireless network.
  • Open your web browser and go to http://wifi.roosevelt.edu which will take you to the enrollment portal.
  • Follow the steps on the portal to enroll your device.

No action is required in the residential areas of the Wabash Building or if you are not on campus. If you have any questions, please open a help ticket.
