At Illinois Tech we strive to provide students an educational environment free of sexual harassment. To provide students the tools to help with this, Illinois Tech has partnered with EVERFI to provide this training module that will inform the Illinois Tech student community on topics related to the Title IX regulations, reporting a complaint, bystander intervention, healthy relationships, and consent.
Many students have received an email communication from email@example.com in the beginning of September about the mandatory EVERFI course that needs to be completed by November 8, 2021. Illinois Tech requires all new and returning students to complete this course annually.
If you are a Chicago-Kent College of Law student, instructions and communication will be sent to you from Jenna Abhijeet, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.
Please review the following frequently asked questions as they should assist you in understanding the importance of this course.
