SGA passes Bill of Opinion to adjust Title IX process

JMU’s Student Government Association passed a Bill of Opinion on Tuesday that calls on the university to improve Title IX proceedings, to include increasing transparency and providing more resources.

The Bill of Opinion was issued following SGA senator and senior public policy major Erin Coogan’s Title IX case that involved sexual harassment from a professor.

“Sadly, whether we know it or not, bad things are happening to people on campus all the time, and cases are happening on campus, and just because people aren't [public] about it doesn't mean that we shouldn't be advocating for it,” Coogan said before the vote.
