The University requires all first-year students prior to matriculation to participate in an online training on alcohol use, abuse, and sex discrimination. The online program specifically includes a module on sex discrimination and key definitions, including consent. Residence life staff, namely Proctors, also receive training on University policy, appropriate response to sex discrimination, mandatory reporting, and bystander intervention. Other students who receive annual training on sex discrimination include athletes, Greek leaders, the Women’s Center residents, FYP Mentors, Orientation Leaders, PRE Mentors, and members of the Student Title IX Advisory Committee. If your student group desires to be trained by the Title IX office, please contact Dr. Sylvia Gray directly or consider scheduling a peer-to-peer training with a certified student facilitator of STIX.
Certified student facilitators (Peer-to-Peer Trainers)
Student facilitation trainers are certified by the Title IX Coordinator to administer peer-to-peer trainings to Sewanee students. Student facilitators have been trained directly by the Title IX Coordinator. For peer-to-peer student trainings, please contact the Chair of the STIX Advisory Council or, if necessary, Dr. Sylvia Gray directly. See STIX member information below.

HISTORY OF S.T.I.X & The meaning of the S.T.i.X Logo
Click HERE for the History of STIX. The meaning of the STIX logo emerged from the education and training received by the first three classes of STIX members:
The scale at the top is there to represent balance and justice for the student body in cases of sex discrimination.
The condom on the right is there to represent the overarching goal of STIX, which is for students to have better sex education, especially around consent.
The heart represents the goal of educating the student body on healthy relationships.
The gender symbols on the left are there to represent the intent of STIX to educate and represent all Sewanee students, no matter their gender identity.
