New Interim Title IX Policy

Letter from President Darryll J. Pines

The Sexual Assault Prevention Event Log collects information about events at the University of Maryland related to sexual assault prevention. This allows the Sexual Assault Prevention Committee (SAPC) to track information about the events, such as how many events are held and how many members of the university community are engaged in sexual assault prevention. To access the portal, go to  


What types of events should be entered in the portal?

Trainings, events, and programs organized by a UMD student or employee related to sexual assault, sexual harassment, and other sexual misconduct can be entered in the portal. This includes events held on campus, as well as events held in the College Park community.


What if I am organizing a series of events?

If you are organizing a series of events, please enter each event separately. For example, if you are organizing a lecture series in which one speaker is invited to speak on campus each month, please enter each speaker’s talk as a separate event.


What types of events do not need to be entered in the portal?

Mandatory online training does not need to be entered in the portal because the SAPC is collecting this information in a different way. This includes the required training for employees, incoming first-year students, graduate students, and student organization leaders.

Your Voice Matters

The Your Voice Matters event is a virtual opportunity to share how we, as Terps, practice consent, support survivors, and plan to continue moving forward with sexual assault prevention after April. We invite you to join us in conversation over social media and video conferencing platforms for a variety of activities. To stay up-to-date with this event, we recommend following department social media pages around campus, such as CARE to Stop Violence, who are using #RaiseYourVoiceUMD.

Step UP! is an interactive workshop on bystander intervention facilitated by our amazing team of CARE to Stop Violence Peer Educators. The college environment yields many opportunities for both intentional and unintentional dangerous, problematic, or violent behavior. During this hour long workshop participants learn to evaluate challenging situations and determine how to safely intervene using one of the 3D’s (Direct, Distract, and Delegate). Step UP! empowers audience members with the awareness skills and tools to help prevent harmful situations from occurring or escalating on our campus. This workshop is approximately 50 minutes and requires full A/V technology for an interactive PowerPoint learning experience. To request a workshop, click here.
