Sexual misconduct (sexual harassment, sexual assault, and sexual/dating/domestic violence) and sex discrimination are violations of KIIS policies. Anyone experiencing sexual misconduct and/or sex discrimination may obtain confidential support from WKU Title IX Coordinator, Deborah Wilkins, or Title IX Deputies, Joshua Hayes and Michael Crowe.
All KIIS employees must report information you have about alleged or possible sexual misconduct/assault involving student-to-student concerns, employee-to-student, employee-to-employee, student-to-employee, etc. to either Maria Canning, John Dizgun, Deborah Wilkins, Joshua Hayes, or Michael Crowe within 24 hours of receiving such information.
Everyone should be able to participate on a KIIS program, attend KIIS events, or work in a KIIS environment (e.g. KIIS office) without fear of sexual harassment or discrimination of any kind. Be respectful of each other.

“The study abroad program to Greece made the learning of ancient Greece and Greeks more personal because I was witnessing the locations and artifacts that we were discussing which made it seem more real. We weren’t talking about events that happened in a far away land but were discussing events that happened on the very ground we were stepping on. To me, it just blew my mind and made me love every minute of my journey.”
