The online courses- Preventing Harassment on Campus- Supervisory and Non-Supervisory Faculty and Staff 2nd Edition- 2015-2017, likely to remain offline through Friday, April 28, 2017 (APril 21, 2017)

April 21, 2017

The online courses- Preventing Harassment on Campus- Supervisory and Non-Supervisory Faculty and Staff 2nd Edition- 2015-2017, remain offline. The courseware vendor is in the process of granting us access to the courses as quickly as they are able. The courseware vendor had told us that the courses would be available by today, but unfortunately, that does not appear likely to occur.

Due to the extended outage of the courses, we are working with IM-HR to grant a 30-day extension on the due date for all employees who are due to complete the course before 5/31/2017. We hope to have these extensions processed by Monday, April 24, 2017.

The instructor-led courses remain an option for all new and current employees. Enrollment instructions for the instructor-led courses are available on EOD’s website at: https://diversity.uiowa.edu/programs/sexual-harassment-prevention-education.

A notice about the outage is posted on the landing page for the online courses and will be updated on EOD’s blog (https://diversity.uiowa.edu/hr-unit-rep-toolkit). Please email diversity@uiowa.edu with any questions/concerns you may have. Thank you for your continued patience.
