Today we talk with Ted Lewis, Associate Director LGBTQ Campus Life at the University of Richmond, about Title IX on college campuses, what this means for campuses in protecting students that have experienced sexual harassment and/or sexual violence, as well as it’s implications on LGBTQ students.
This is Part 1 of a 4 part series so please stay tuned! We will be posting the discussion in it’s entirety soon for those that want to listen to it all the way through
