Campus-Wide Annual Training Requirement

The University has partnered with Everfi to administer online, self-paced interactive courses on discrimination and harassment prevention. These courses cover legal and policy information such as reporting obligations, as well as examples of how to prevent and respond to instances of discrimination and harassment.

Sexual harassment prevention training is an annual requirement administered at the start of each academic year for all University students, faculty, other academic appointees, postdoctoral researchers, and staff. State law requires employers to retrain employees on an annual basis.

The training is mandatory and students, faculty, other academic appointees, postdoctoral researchers and staff are subject to accountability measures if they do not complete the training by its due date. Students will receive a hold on their account and academics and staff may be subject to loss of merit eligibility depending on employment status. Please see the links below for more detailed information on compliance measures, as well as information on course content and access to training.

Information for Students

Sexual harassment prevention training is required annually for all students and will take approximately one hour to complete. You should login using your CNETID. The program allows you to save your progress and return later, but the full course must be completed in its entirety by the date specified in the annual communication regarding the training at the start of autumn quarter.
