Equal Opportunity: Online Training Programs
Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education mandates that all universities conduct sexual harassment awareness training with new students. Additionally, the University is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects persons from sex discrimination in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance. California University of Pennsylvania provides many resources to administration, faculty and staff, as well as students, to address concerns relating to discrimination on the basis of sex, which includes sexual misconduct, stalking and dating/domestic violence. To this end, California University of Pennsylvania also offers through the Human Resources office an online training program(s) regarding Title IX legislation. In addition to the Title IX online training program, the Human Resources office is requiring that all personnel (administration, faculty and staff) and all students complete the required E.O./discrimination prevention training courses annually.
