Prevention Education and Upcoming Programs
The Title IX Office works to decrease the prevalence of sexual harassment, including sexual assault, domestic/dating violence and stalking, while promoting healthy relationships and responsible decision making among Geneseo students on campus and in the surrounding community.
Through prevention education programming, the Title IX Office works to decrease sexual harassment prevalence by shifting cultural norms, addressing issues specific to high-risk populations, reducing barriers to survivor services, and increasing reporting of alleged incidents.
The Title IX Office is always looking to work with faculty, staff, and students to raise awareness of interpersonal violence and provide a safe space for members of our community to seek support. Workshops are facilitated weekly and open to all members of the campus community weekly on Tuesdays by Title IX Staff - Sophia Piazza, Sarah Link and Marcus Foster. We also can provide educational programs upon request. If you are interested in hosting or partnering in an upcoming workshop, please email the Title IX Prevention Education Specialist, Sophia Piazza, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (585) 245-6490.
