The Graduate Student Council is looking for graduate students willing to participate in one of two student groups: the Title IX Student Working Group or the Hazing Prevention and Education Committee.  Apply to either by Tuesday, December 10th, 2013 by sending an email with resume and a brief statement of interest (in PDF format) to gsc-nominations@mit.edu.Over the past year, the Institute has worked to introduce a number of new initiatives to address sexual misconduct at MIT.  Among those initiatives is a revised Sexual Misconduct Policy, designated Title IX Coordinators throughout the Institute, and the creation of the position Title IX Investigator, dedicated to investigating allegations of misconduct and developing educational efforts.  Apply to become a part of this group, and assist in creating educational messages and material related to Title IX and Sexual Misconduct, provide advice on the best way to reach students and disseminate information, think through “big picture” issues such as assessing the campus climate, and create better tools to better assess unique issues affecting undergraduate and graduate students.  The time commitment is somewhat variable, but most likely will involve a bi-monthly meeting with some sub-committee work as needed.

The Hazing Prevention and Education Committee is looking for a grad student to serve in this group.  Monthly meeting times are all at 3:00pm on December 12th, January 9th, February 6th, March 6th, April 3rd, May 1st, and May 29th.  This committee reviews status and feedback-gathering processes for updated hazing policy (work completed), reaches out to people via education and an outreach curriculum, and maintains the MIT hazing prevention website, Hazing consortium proposal, Hazing Reporting Form, Hazing Compliance E-Form, and the Hazing Investigation Protocol.
