Know Your Title IX Series Scheduled
UNC Charlotte’s Title IX Office, Center for Wellness Promotion, and Dean of Students Office join The Feminist Union to present "Forty IX'ers: Know Your Title IX"; a four-part series on sexual assault, stalking and relationship violence. The series will offer education, panel discussions, resources and additional learning opportunities related to Title IX and the Violence Against Women Act (also called Campus SaVE).
According to Dawn Floyd, the University's Titile IX coordinator, "We are hoping these programs are not only informative, but will also provide students with an opportunity to ask questions about UNC Charlotte’s processes and resources and an opportunity to discuss their concerns about these issues on our campus."
The series kicks off on Oct. 27 with a session on applicable Title IX laws; what the laws mean for students; how and where to report a complaint of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking; confidential vs. non-confidential resources; and how complaints are handled at UNC Charlotte.

CTI Explores Lake Norman on Oct. 21
The flow of life along the Catawba River changed dramatically about 50 years ago when Duke Energy created Lake Norman with the construction of Cowans Ford Dam in 1963. The lake and its surrounding region saw small farms, large plantations, mills and more replaced by state-of-the-art homes and businesses, nuclear power structures, and a recreational lake culture – along with less visible changes such as shifting fish populations and a rise in community activism and environmental protection.
Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) will plumb the depths of Lake Norman – past, present and future – with "Exploding Canons: Under The Lake" on Tuesday, Oct. 21, 5:30 - 8:30 PM, at Davidson College’s Lilly Family Gallery. This installment of CTI’s flagship speakers series dives deep into the changing social and physical landscapes of Lake Norman and its profound effects on the larger region, with a diverse group of topics and experts .
