Training Catalog

System-wide communication was sent out regarding revisions made to the Sexual Misconduct Policy that went into effect on October 1, 2018. The policy revisions included a new requirement for all employees to continually complete training on all OE-related policies. The training referenced in the policy administered by the OE, is titled, Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct. Click here to read the full communication regarding the new training requirements.

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 faculty, staff, and student 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. 


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 hour+. Please note, this training does not fulfill your mandatory training requirement. You are still required to complete the two-hour Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Training online and/or through an instructor-led course.   

No Longer on Stand-By: Active Bystander TrainingHave you ever been in a conversation when someone said something biased that made you uncomfortable, but you weren’t sure how to respond? Or maybe you witnessed something troubling (some form of harmful behavior like a microaggression) happening to someone else and you weren’t sure how to support that person in the moment? You're not alone in those feelings! Many folks struggle addressing these types of situations. We’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. In this training, participants will: (1) learn more about social identities and unconscious bias; (2) learn more about the history, theory, and cognitive/behavioral process of the bystander effect; and (3) learn more about recommended bystander intervention tactics and how to use them as an effective ally. In addition, this training briefly covers 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 takes 1.5 hours.
