East Stroudsburg University of PA (ESU) provides an environment where faculty, staff and students can work, educate, learn and grow. We also recognize the affect sexual harassment and sexual violence can have on our campus environment.
To this end we offer programs, processes and training that clearly define our commitment to creating an environment free of harassment.
ESU is bound by various state and federal regulations and laws prohibiting harassment.
One such law is Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
Pursuant to Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and 34 C.F.R.
Part 106, ESU’s Title IX Coordinator is the designated agent of the University with primary responsibility for coordinating University Title IX compliance efforts.
The Title IX coordinator’s responsibilities are critical to the development, implementation, and monitoring of meaningful efforts to comply with Title IX legislation and regulation.
In broad terms, the Title IX Coordinator oversees monitoring of University policy in relation to Title IX law; implementation of grievance procedures, including notification, investigation and disposition of complaints; provision of educational materials and training for the campus community; conducting and/or coordinating investigations of complaints received pursuant to Title IX; ensuring a fair and neutral process for all parties; and monitoring all other aspects of compliance of the University’s Title IX.
