The Office of Social Equity works to assist in the creation of a campus environment that promotes diversity and values individual differences. IUP believes that diversity enriches the campus community, and we strive to understand,
accept, and value differences respectfully.
Please refer to the IUP Diversity Calendar for a compilation of campus-wide diversity events.
Of special note, the university will host multiple discussions on free speech, including Six O’Clock Series programming, and other focused events.
Please visit the IUP Free Speech website.
IUP takes immediate and effective steps to end sexual harassment, sexual violence, retaliation, and other prohibited sexual misconduct. The university’s Title IX coordinator/compliance specialist is housed in the Office of Social Equity and oversees the
processes related to the university Title IX policy and resources. The coordinator also manages annual
mandatory training for university employees, affiliates/contractors, and volunteers. These trainings include Title IX
Sexual Harassment/Sexual Violence and Protection of Minors.
The Office of Social Equity assists the
Office of Human Resources in resolving complaints and reports of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
The Office of Human Resources works in partnership with the Office of Social Equity to improve the existing faculty and staff search procedures by
developing new and more creative supplementary approaches to increasing faculty and staff diversity on campus.
The university has established this policy that allows students, faculty, staff, and alumni to indicate their preferred first names to the university community, even if they have not legally changed their first name. Download (pdf) the
