Point Park University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education programs, activities, or employment practices. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX), 20 U.S.C. §§ 1681 et seq., and its implementing regulations, 34 C.F.R. Part 106, prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of Federal financial assistance

Sexual harassment, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual violence refers to physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent due to the victim’s use of drugs or alcohol.  Conduct that may be considered sexual harassment includes:

  • Uninvited touching, hugging, or patting
  • Pressure for sexual favors for rewards related to school or work
  • Obscene phone calls, texts, pictures, gestures or emails
