Compliance & Prevention: Training and Education

PAFA has partnered with online education leader EVERFI to provide critical compliance and prevention training to our faculty and staff members. As part of our comprehensive training program, all faculty and staff are expected to complete assigned courses.

EVERFI delivers prevention education, data analytics, and research to 1,500 higher education institutions. It was endorsed by the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Pennsylvania (AICUP) 2019-2020 for Title IX and student learning systems.

EVERFI training, in addition to being highly interactive and engaging, is based on research around the best practices for communicating and maintaining healthy relationships with your colleagues and students. However, the course contact may be triggering to some individuals. If you feel you may have difficulty completing the course due to past trauma, please contact the Title IX Coordinator to discuss alternatives.

We are excited to be offering such comprehensive information to better serve you as a member of our community.
