Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex. Sexual harassment of students, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by this federal law. When incidents of sexual harassment or sexual violence, including domestic violence, stalking, and dating violence, occur and are reported to campus security authorities, IUP takes immediate and effective steps to end sexual harassment and sexual violence. Retaliation against individuals reporting sexual harassment and/or sexual violence will not be tolerated and will be addressed through the appropriate university process (University Police, Student Conduct, Human Resources). Questions about IUP’s Title IX policy and protocol can be directed to Dr. Rhonda Luckey, IUP’s Title IX coordinator, vice president for Student Affairs, at rluckey@iup.edu, 724-357-4040, 211 Sutton Hall.
