Women’s History Month was an opportunity to highlight Title IX and the rights it guarantees under federal law for Camryn Bernstein ’23, MAT ’24, vice president of sorority education on Quinnipiac’s Panhellenic Council.

She and the council partnered with Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. and the Interfraternity Council for a program called, “How to Be a Better Ally to Women.”
“Educating the university on Title IX issues would allow for a greater understanding among every individual, both students and faculty,” suggested Bernstein, a student in the BA/MAT (4+1) program majoring in English with a minor in marketing. In April, Bernstein and her peers hosted “The Clothesline Project.”
The event encouraged members of Greek organizations to write facts, statistics and phrases about sexual assault on shirts. If comfortable, others could write about their experiences with sexual assault.
