Title IX Statement

 It is the policy of Shippensburg University to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in any of its educational programs or activities. This policy is in accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

 Prohibited sex discrimination covers sexual harassment including sexual violence. Sexual harassment is conduct that is sexual in nature and is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it adversely affects a student’s ability to participate in or benefit from the University’s activities or educational programs or creates a hostile or abusive educational environment. Sexual violence is a form of sexual harassment, prohibited by Title IX which includes conduct that is criminal in nature. Acts may include rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual coercion, unwanted touching, dating violence and sexually motivated stalking.

 Inquiries concerning the application of Title IX may be referred to Shippensburg University’s Title IX coordinator or to the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights.
