Title IX and the Clery Act


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 or sexual misconduct should be directed to Dr. Gant's attention at or by phone 814-393-2109. A complaint form will soon  be available 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.
