Title IX has partnered with Restorative Practices to create and facilitate a discussion based, interactive presentation for student athete teams and other student organizations.

CommUnity focuses on teaching students active bystander techniques during situations involving sexual harassment, domestic and dating violence, and other scenarios they may hear about from friends, students, or even face themselves. 

This presentation is available for any student organization on campus, or a university department that believes this type of training may be useful. 

Green Dot

JMU utilizes Green Dot, an evidence-based comprehensive strategy, to prevent power-based personal violence (sexual violence, dating violence and stalking) in our community. The foundation of Green Dot is community mobilization involving faculty, staff and students as partners in prevention.

Green Dot trainings are proactive and include skill-based learning that encourage all members of our community to do their part to prevent harm.

No one has to do everything, but everyone has to do something.”


JMtrUth is a 40-minute session that is up front with students regarding JMU’s expectations for its community members; this is the official introduction that all students have to understand the policies they are expected to uphold while members of the JMU community.

Representatives from the Office of Student Accountability and Restorative Practices (OSARP) discuss the university’s alcohol and drug policies, as well as the ways in which the university holds students accountable for violating these expectations.

Further, the staff from the University’s Title IX Office and OSARP outline sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, consent, and incapacitation as defined by the university. This enables students to navigate their intimate relationships in a manner that is consistent with the expectations the university has for how they will treat their fellow students. Information about sexual misconduct resources and the process is also shared.
