IUP is committed to maintaining a community free from sexual discrimination and sexual misconduct, and to promoting the safety and security of minors who visit campus or participate in our programs. In compliance with federal and state laws, and the State
System’s Board of Governors, ALL university and university-related personnel must complete annual training on the university’s Sexual Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Policy (Title IX) and the Protection of Minors Policy.
Given the scope and numerous changes to the new 2020 Title IX federal regulations, all personnel will again complete an EverFi (updated) training. [Last year’s D2L courses are not able to be offered.] Training will be accomplished during the 2020–21 academic year in one of the following ways:
This group includes those who are paid or compensated in any way by the university. These participants will receive and complete two EverFi/Foundry modules: 1) “Preventing Harassment and Discrimination” and 2) “Protecting Youth and Neglect.” Emails containing personalized links to the training modules will be sent from PASSHE at the beginning of second semester, and you will have 30 days to complete both. Note: Emails/links can NOT be shared or forwarded, as they are specific to each employee so that course completion can be recorded correctly in SAP.
Time during work hours and computer access are to be provided in order for all personnel to meet their requirement. Supervisors of all student workers and graduate assistants should
be sure that their students have completed all trainings.
This group includes those who are NOT paid or compensated in any way by the university. These participants will continue to complete the Qualtrics Training Overview as accessed below. Personnel involved in these programs, and other notified individuals and groups, may be required—and are highly encouraged—to complete the training overview. (This
would encompass individuals and groups not entered into SAP through payroll or other means.)
If you are in this category and have been directed to this site, you are now able to access your required training overview through the link below. Be sure to click through to the final screen in order to receive your certificate and for your participation to be recorded. (Please note that this is a combined presentation and there is only one Qualtrics link.)
Qualtrics Link: Sexual Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct and Protection of Minors Training Overview
The material contained in the three training options may be intense and trigger emotional responses in some participants. If you believe you would be better served meeting the training requirement through a one-on-one personal conversation with Elise
Glenn, chief diversity and inclusion officer/Title IX coordinator, please email email@example.com or call the Social Equity and Title IX Office at 724-357-3402.
Supervisors and advisors of groups and organizations (e.g., ROTC, Honors College, Athletics, Greek Leaders, etc.) may request an in-person Q&A and overview of the training material and resources once each member of the group has completed one of the training
options. Elise Glenn, chief diversity and inclusion officer/Title IX coordinator, would be happy to meet with groups to introduce herself and to highlight points regarding the university’s Sexual Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Policy, university
processes, and resources available on campus and within the community. To schedule an overview presentation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Social Equity and Title IX Office
at 724-357-3402. Please note that this presentation does not take the place of the required annual training.
