Reminder: Mandatory Annual Training for Title IX and Protection of Minors

Posted on 9/1/2017 9:17:05 AM

In compliance with federal and state laws, all employees and university-related personnel must complete annual Title IX and Protection of Minors training. Individual e-mails have been sent during the last two weeks from Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education, which contain access to both required training modules. We are pleased to report that almost half of the over 2,000 persons assigned the training have completed both courses—thank you!  

Please note that newly hired/re-hired employees, including student workers, will not receive their Pennsylvania State System e-mail until all payroll paperwork has been processed. All other employees and university-related personnel (i.e., affiliates, contractors, units, and centers) should have received their e-mails. If you have not, or if you are experiencing difficulty accessing your trainings, please contact Karen Mathe in the Office of Social Equity at

Further information can be found within the training FAQ and on the Mandatory Title IX and Protection of Minors Training webpage.IUP’s Title IX policy and support documents, including the 2017–18 Where to Turn for Help/Title IX brochure, can be found on the Title IX Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence Resources webpage.
