Title IX – Use Your Voice

Use Your Voice is the name of MCW’s Title IX brand focused on Prevention and Awareness. As a member of the MCW community, the branding encourages you to “Use Your Voice” to address issues of discrimination and violence.

MCW’s Commitment

MCW is committed to creating and sustaining a safe learning and working environment that recognizes and values the dignity of all members of the MCW community. In furtherance of this commitment and as more fully described below, MCW strictly prohibits domestic violence, dating violence, discrimination based on sex, sexual assault and stalking as stated in the Title IX Education Amendments of 1972 and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

MCW has a LGBTPM student run organization whose mission is to cultivate - through activism, education, and diverse membership - an environment of safety and pride for past, current, and future students, faculty and staff of all sexual orientations and gender identities.  By building support both on and off campus, we will break down barriers of homophobia within the medical community to further combat inequalities facing both physicians and LGBT patients. Membership is free. We welcome all members, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identities, to join us. Visit the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People in Medicine page for more information.

In accordance with Title IX, and consistent with MCW’s commitment to ensure a safe learning and working environment, all reports of sexual discrimination and sexual violence are taken seriously. Sexual discrimination includes gender inequity as well as all forms of sexual misconduct including sexual harassment, stalking, sexual assault and other acts of sexual violence. MCW will take prompt action to eliminate the sexual discrimination or misconduct, prevent its recurrence and address its effects.
