Sexual Harassment Prevention & Resolution

This message is to inform the campus community of the University's legal obligations to promptly and equitably investigate complaints of sexual harassment and discrimination. 

Millersville University is committed to creating and maintaining a community free of all forms of exploitation, intimidation, and harassment, including sexual harassment. The University does not tolerate sexual harassment, which is prohibited by state and federal law, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and by University policy.  The University is also obligated to promptly and equitably investigate alleged violations of sexual harassment and sexual discrimination in order to comply with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and Title IX of the Education Amendments and their respective underlying regulations.

One of the OSED goals is to educate the campus community on the prevention and resolution of sexual harassment and to provide timely, neutral, thorough and fair services, with the handling sexual harassment complaints in accordance with University policy, governing laws, and regulations. In addition, we investigate complaints; coordinate training and education sessions for students, faculty and staff, and serve as a resource for individuals with questions about sexual harassment issues.
