What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance.
Clarion University is committed to cultivating a learning, teaching and working environment that is free of discrimination on any basis, which includes discrimination on the basis of sex. The University offers many resources for addressing complaints of sex discrimination. Jocelind Gant, Ph.D., Assistant to the President for Social Equity, serves as the University's Title IX coordinator.
Inquiries, concerns or complaints of faculty, staff and students regarding sex discrimination should be directed to her attention at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 814-393-2109. A complaint form will soon be available to be completed on-line.
The Office of Social Equity works closely with the Offices of Public Safety (campus police) and the Judicial and Mediation Services in addressing complaints regarding sexual assault, and sexual violence.
