Message from Title IX Coordinator Regarding New Title IX Regulations

Posted on 5/7/2020 10:03:02 AM

On May 6, 2020, new regulations regarding Title IX were released. Below is a message from Elise Glenn, chief diversity and inclusion officer/Title IX coordinator, regarding the impact of these new guidelines.

Dear IUP Community:  

The federal government has released new regulations regarding Title IX, the law that prohibits sex-based discrimination and harassment at schools, colleges, and universities. We’ve been anticipating these new guidelines for some time. Now that the new regulations are here, we will begin the work of interpreting them, explaining them, and implementing them. The new regulations go into effect August 14, 2020. Between now and then, I, as Title IX Coordinator, will collaborate with the Student Conduct associate director, Adam Jones, to make sure our policies and procedures align with the new federal regulations, along with Pennsylvania state laws, PASSHE Board of Governors rules, court decisions, and our values as a community. 

I will keep you updated as to what these new regulations mean for IUP. Rest assured that we remain committed to ensuring all of our Title IX actions are based in respect, sensitivity, and dignity for all members of our community. You can reach me at title-ix@iup.edu. You can report incidents of sexual misconduct through the online Incidents of Concern reporting page.

Sincerely, 

Elise Glenn
Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer/Title IX Coordinator
