Mandatory Annual Online Training: Title IX and Protection of Minors

Posted on 8/31/2018 2:03:14 PM

In compliance with federal and state laws, all employees and university-related personnel must complete annual online Title IX and Protection of Minors training. E-mails will be sent from the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education on or about September 11, 2018, to returning/continuously employed IUP and affiliate personnel. Both training courses are to be accessed through this one e-mail, and you will have 30 days to complete them.  

The courses are titled “Intersections: Preventing Harassment and Sexual Violence” and “EDU: Protect Children (Pennsylvania).” You must complete both courses. Each e-mail and access link are individualized so that course completion can be correctly recorded electronically in SAP. You can not forward or share e-mails/links, as only the person who received the e-mail will get credit for completion. Training is interactive and self-paced. You can start and leave a course as often as needed. When you return, the course will open to the last page visited.

You will have an opportunity to print a training certificate after completing each session, which you should keep for your records. Do not forward these certificates to the Office of Social Equity, as your course completion will be electronically recorded. Time during work hours and computer access are to be provided by each division, college, or department in order for all personnel to meet their requirement. Once you have completed both trainings, please download (pdf) and keep the 2018–19 Where to Turn for Help/Title IX brochure

Supervisors of all student workers should be sure that their students have completed both of the trainings as well. Please note that new hires will receive their State System e-mail once their payroll paperwork has been processed. 

Further information can be found on the Mandatory Training website, or by contacting Karen Mathe in the Office of Social Equity at Questions about IUP’s Title IX policy and protocol should be directed to Elise Glenn at
