Title IX-Protection of Minors Required Employee Training

Posted on 10/21/2015 9:39:01 AM

It's On Us graphicIUP is committed to establishing and maintaining a community free from all forms of discrimination and harassment and is dedicated to promoting the safety and security of minors who visit campus or participate in our programs. Last year, changes in federal and state law created reporting responsibilities for all employees in regard to Title IX and Protection of Minors.

In support of compliance with these regulations, large-group training sessions have been scheduled for all colleges and divisions here on campus. These will be hosted by Valerie Mercado, compliance officer and Title IX coordinator, or Sondra Dennison, director of Residential Living and deputy Title IX coordinator. 

These training sessions are required for every employee each academic year. The Title IX and Protection of Minors training held last spring was for the 2014–15 academic year. The sessions scheduled this semester will fulfill the requirement for the 2015–16 academic year.

All employees have now been notified of the training sessions scheduled for their division, department, or college through their Title IX liaison or the Office of Social Equity. If you are unsure of your session options, please contact Karen Mathe at kmathe@iup.edu. Please note that this information also pertains to student workers, graduate assistants, or any other students who work/report to your offices.
