Tarrant County College’s HR Title IX Team Receives CUPA-HR’s HR Excellence Award

Tarrant County College’s HR Title IX Team

Tarrant County College’s HR Title IX Team has received the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) 2016 HR Excellence Award. This award honors transformative HR work in higher education, recognizing teams or individuals who have provided HR leadership resulting in significant and ongoing organizational change within their institutions. Thanks to the generous support of VALIC, CUPA-HR is pleased to offer a $3,000 contribution to Tarrant County College (TCC)’s endowment or a scholarship fund of the Title IX team’s choice.

TCC’s Title IX team received the award for its sexual violence prevention training. Knowing that the one-size-fits-all approach rarely works for training and development, the Title IX team (in collaboration with the human resources, IT, TCC police, academic affairs and student success departments) implemented custom, targeted e-learning programs for different segments of the TCC population — students, administrators, staff, faculty, supervisors and Title IX investigators. The training programs combine real-world scenarios, interactive activities and links to sexual violence prevention resources and policies. TCC staff, faculty and students have completed nearly 11,000 courses since the training was implemented.
