Title IX TRAINING
Phi Rho Pi does not tolerate any behaviors which constitute sexual harassment. In order to protect the safety of all participants, everyone who attends the National Tournament should undergo Title IX/sexual harassment training as mandated by their home institution. All participants, judges, students, staff, and coaches must engage in Title IX training between August 1, 2022 and April 3, 2023.
The preferred option for training is that program’s make use of appropriate offices on a school’s home campus. Once complete, proof of completion forms should be submitted at registration.
