Training and Outreach Opportunities
The Title IX Training and Outreach Coordinator is a brand new addition to the Texas Tech University Title IX Team! With the primary goal of educating, empowering, and equipping our campus community, Abigail Wesson provides trainings and facilitates workshops to students, faculty, and staff. Specifically tailoring presentations to each group's needs, we offer an engaging space to learn about University policies, resources, and prevention.

Healthy Relationships Workshops
Partnering with the One Love Foundation, we facilitate several healthy relationship workshops while also ensuring students know about University resources. The workshops use short films and interactive discussions to educate students about healthy and unhealthy relationships, empowering them to identify and avoid abuse and learn how to love better.
Behind the Post
Billions of photos are posted to social media every day, but you can't always see the big picture through the small ones, especially when it comes to unhealthy relationships. Behind the Post examines unhealthy relationship behaviors and the role social media can play.
In an abusive relationship, sometimes it can feel like you're trapped with no ability to leave. Even the tiniest of behaviors from your partner can impact your self-esteem, independence and ability to recognize the relationship you deserve. Love Labyrinth helps students talk about controlling statements and other unhealthy relationship behaviors.
Because I Love You - Deflecting Responsibility
“Because I Love You” may seem like such a sweet and simple statement, but in an unhealthy relationship, it's often used as a tool for manipulation and control. It can be a cover for a put-down, a way to assign blame, or a deflection of responsibility. Because I Love You discusses how these words can specifically be a tool for deflecting responsibility, as well as the role that alcohol often plays as an excuse for unhealthy or abusive behaviors.
