Response to Recent Social Media Activity, September 2019

Posted on 9/6/2019 4:50:19 PM

Earlier today, we became aware of a racist social media post made by a member of the IUP community. We have been in contact with the individual who created the post, and we are taking appropriate action.

Hate has no place in our community, and we do not condone incidents of discrimination or racist messages.

Support for students is available from a number of IUP offices, including the Office of Social Equity and Title IX; the Division of Student Affairs; the IUP Counseling CenterUniversity Police; and the Office of International Education and Global Engagement. Support for employees is available from the Office of Human Resources.

Reports of incidents of hate or discrimination can be made to the Office of Social Equity and Title IX Office.
