Prevention Task Force

The University of Memphis' Prevention Task Force was established in 2017. Its purpose is to provide oversight and guidance for the campus-wide Title IX: Prevention Program. The committee meets on a quarterly basis and is chaired by the Title IX: Prevention Specialist and the Title IX: Prevention Fellow. 

If you are interested in joining the Prevention Task Force, or learning more about our efforts, please contact us at preventiontraining@memphis.edu

The committee is comprised of students, faculty, and staff administrators from several areas of campus, as well as the City of Memphis.
