Training Catalog

Effective October 1, 2018, CU System-wide communication was sent out regarding revisions made to the Sexual Misconduct Policy. The policy revisions included a new requirement for all employees to complete training on all OE-related policies every three years. The Skillsoft training referenced in the policy administered by the OE, is titled, CU: Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct – CU Denver | CU Anschutz

On May 6, 2020, Title IX regulations (2020 Title IX regulations) were announced by the U.S. Department of Education and Office for Civil Rights with a mandate to be in effect by August 14, 2020. The university has revised our system-wide Sexual Misconduct, Intimate Partner Violence, and Stalking Policy (Sexual Misconduct Policy) pursuant to updated legal requirements from the U.S. Department of Education under Title IX.

On August 18, 2020, all employee compliance records were "reset." This means if you completed the Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct training before August 18, 2020, you are considered out of compliance with university policy and are required to retake the course. 

  • Communications were sent informing the campus community of the 2020 Title IX regulations and compliance record “reset” on August 18, 2020 (CU Denver News and CU Anschutz News), and new communications were advertised in July 2022, in honor of Title IX’s 50th anniversary (CU Denver News and CU Anschutz News).

On August 8, 2022, all dual campus employees were auto-enrolled into our online Skillsoft training to increase compliance rates, and will receive automatic reminders/past-due notifications when it is time to retake the training (every three years).

To simplify tracking employee training completion, as of August 18, 2020, all employees status related to training completion were reset to “out of compliance."

  • New employees are required to complete this training within their first 90 days of employment.
  • Existing employees are required to take this training every three years.

There are two ways to complete the required training:

1. You can complete the online Skillsoft training on your UCDAccess Portal titled CU: Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct -- CU Denver | CU Anschutz.

2. You can request a 2-hour, instructor-led training that is specific to your department. 

You are able to track your training completion status and/or the training completion status of your department staff (if you are a supervisor), via a training summary

A training summary is a record of all trainings you have completed thus far, via Skillsoft. Training listed in an employee’s training summary is what the OE will reference to ensure all employees are complying with the new training requirement.

To access your personal training summary, follow these steps:

  • From your UCDAccess Portal home page, select the navigation bar in the upper right corner
  • Select “CU Resources”
  • Select: "Training"
    • If you are an employee and would like to view your own record, click “Training Summary”
    • If you are in a supervisory role, you can select “Supervisor Training Summary,” which provides a summary of training taken for your employees/department. 

Equity 101: What We Do: In this training, we will discuss our role on campus and the processes we follow when we receive a complaint, mandatory reporting obligations for campus responsible employees, what needs to be reported to our office, and an overview of the mandatory training requirements (required for all staff and faculty) to ensure compliance with University policy. If time allows, we may include videos, case studies, and other interactive activities and discussion. This training can range from 20 minutes to an 60+ minutes. Please note, this training does not fulfill your mandatory training requirement. You are still required to complete the online CU: Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct--CU Denver and CU Anschutz training via Skillsoft and/or through an instructor-led course.   


No Longer on Stand-By: Ethical Bystander TrainingWe’d all like to consider ourselves helpful people and we want to do what’s right; however, it can be hard to know how to act in moments where bias shows up. You’re not alone in those feelings! In this training, we want to provide the tools for participants to: 1) learn more about social identities, unconscious bias, and microaggressions; 2) learn more about the history, theory, and cognitive/behavioral process of the bystander effect; 3) learn more about recommended bystander intervention tactics (the 5 D’s) and how to use them as an effective ally. If applicable to the audience, this training will briefly cover mandatory reporting obligations for responsible employees outlined in university policy. If time allows, we will provide an opportunity to practice our recommended intervention tactics. This training can take 60-90 minutes.

Respect Expected: Learn more about the OE and how you can help contribute to the safety and security of our campus community members. Specifically, the course covers your rights and responsibilities under university policies the OE administers, tactics to intervene in harmful situations (when safe/appropriate), and available campus support resources if you or someone you know is experiencing any form of discrimination, harassment, and/or sexual misconduct. The course is free and not for credit. It should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. 

  • If you are a new student, you will be auto-enrolled into the course.
  • If you are not a new student, and would like to be enrolled in the course, please email the OE at

Prevention Together:  Learn more about the OE and the Phoenix Center at Auraria | Anschutz (PCA), and how you can help contribute to the safety and security of our campus community members.

It should take approximately one hour to complete. 

The OE may be able to provide a training for your department depending on what topic(s) you and your team are looking for related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). 

If we are not the appropriate department to fulfill your training request, we will (most likely) refer you/your team to one of the two DEI offices based on your/your department's campus affiliation.
