The Policy at Webster
To offer an open learning and working environment, we have created a policy on sexual harassment. Our Title IX office offers support, training and reporting tools to help members of the Webster University community. We have outlined these resources in our policy and encourage our community to engage with our team openly.
Resources for Webster Students, Staff and Faculty
Students: learn how and when to make a report, discover counseling information, find trainings and other resources. We have also compiled information about responsibilities, annual training sessions and counseling for faculty and staff.

Title IX Trainings
The Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights requires all institutions receiving federal funds to make publicly available all materials used to train Title IX coordinators, investigators and decision-makers. In meeting this requirement, Webster University has provided materials or links to materials starting from the implementation of the new Title IX regulations on August 14, 2020.
