Syllabi Policies

The following policies and guidance relate to the teaching environment.  The Non-discrimination Policy and the Title IX Policy must appear verbatim on the syllabus for each class. Additional policies can be included or linked to by faculty as best suits their desired classroom and learning environment.

Title IX : Slippery Rock University and its faculty are committed to assuring a safe and productive educational environment for all students. In order to comply with the requirements of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the University’s commitment to offering supportive measures in accordance with the new regulations issued under Title IX, the University requires faculty members to report incidents of sexual violence shared by students to the University's Title IX Coordinator. The only exceptions to the faculty member's reporting obligation are when incidents of sexual violence are communicated by a student during a classroom discussion, in a writing assignment for a class, or as part of a University-approved research project. Faculty members are obligated to report sexual violence or any other abuse of a student who was, or is, a child (a person under 18 years of age) when the abuse allegedly occurred to the person designated in the University protection of minors policy. Information regarding the reporting of sexual violence and the resources that are available to victims of sexual violence is set forth at: https://www.sru.edu/offices/diversity-and-equal-opportunity/sexual-misconduct-and-victim-resources.
