Training and Education

 

The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) and Edinboro University (EU) are committed to creating and maintaining an academic and work environment that is free of unlawful harassment, intimidation, bullying and discrimination and will not knowingly tolerate substantiated incidences.  

Section 106.45(b) of the 2020 Final Title IX Rules require the sharing ofAll materials used to train Title IX Coordinators, investigators, decision-makers, and any person who facilitates an informal resolution process. A recipient must make these training materials publicly available on its website, or if the recipient does not maintain a website the recipient must make these materials available upon request for inspection by members of the public.” 

EU utilizes the SUNY SCI training system for the training of Title IX Coordinators, Hearing Officers, Hearing Board Members, Investigators, and Residence Life Staff.  The training materials provided by SUNY SCI can be found in the link below:

In addition, all faculty, staff, and administrators are required to participate in this training at least every year thereafter. The method of training is at the discretion of each university.

The EU Title IX Office has adopted three methods of delivering the mandated training:

Similarly, new students are made aware of Title IX and the content of the University Policy Manual and the Student Code of Conduct and Judicial Procedures during new student orientation.

In addition to campus programs, periodically Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) provides additional workshops. These workshops provide updates and clarifications on each State System university’s Social Equity responsibilities. Please contact our Title IX Office to find out when the next PASSHE hosted training is being offered.
