Title IX Reporting

Pennsylvania Western 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, PennWest requires faculty members to report incidents of sexual violence shared by students to the university's Title IX Coordinator, Amy Salsgiver [salsgiver@pennwest.edu]. 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's Protection and Supervision of Minors on Campus Policy.

Information regarding the reporting of sexual violence and the resources that are available to victims of sexual violence are available on the Office of Social Equity website. Report may be made to the following individuals:

  • PennWest Title IX Coordinator: Amy Salsgiver, salsgiver@pennwest.edu
  • Edinboro campus: Andrew Matt, amatt@pennwest.edu
  • Clarion campus: Amy Salsgiver, salsgiver@pennwest.edu
  • California campus: Sheleta Camarda-Webb, camardawebb@pennwest.edu
  • Global Online: Andrew Matt, amatt@pennwest.edu
