Responsible Employee Training Sign-up Dates

Dear WPI Community Members,


As you know, on March 1, 2018, the Board of Trustees voted to approve a new interim Sexual Misconduct Policy. This policy continues to uphold our community values of respect and inclusion and is applicable to all members of our community. I encourage each of you to read it at:


You may obtain a written copy of the policy by contacting the Title IX Coordinator, Melissa A. Pierce, at 508-831-6514 or by emailing 


Upcoming workshops will help employees identify their responsibilities under Title IX guidelines. All WPI employees are considered “responsible employees” which means they must report any Title IX violations they know about involving students or any employee they supervise. To help employees learn more about their reporting responsibilities, we are hosting several “Responsible Employee Workshops” in the coming months. All employees must attend one of the workshops. 


Several “Responsible Employee Training” workshops have been scheduled in the month of April.  Please register using Regi 25 at


Additional workshops for employees at Gateway are being scheduled soon.  Additional workshops will be added this summer and fall. Seating is limited and registration through 25Live is required. 


Supervisors or department heads that wish to schedule a separate time where their entire department can be trained together should contact Melissa Pierce, Title IX Coordinator to schedule a time.  

Please contact me with any questions or concerns. 


Melissa A. Pierce
