Throughout the Spring 2013 semester, IUP is offering members of the university community brief trainings on Title IX regulations, polices, and procedures. 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.
Trainers from each division and/or college are meeting with their departmental colleagues, providing an overview of the elements of the university’s policy and federal regulations related to Title IX. In addition, the training provides an overview of resources to which employees may turn when working with students with concerns or having difficulty adjusting to college life.
Members of the university community are encouraged to participate in the training, and can learn more about Title IX and supporting students with concerns through the following IUP webpages: Title IX and Sexual Harassment and Concern and Response Team.
