The online courses- Preventing Harassment on Campus- Supervisory and Non-Supervisory Faculty and Staff 2nd Edition- 2015-2017, may remain offline through Friday, May 5, 2017 (April 28, 2017)

April 28, 2017

The online courses- Preventing Harassment on Campus- Supervisory and Non-Supervisory Faculty and Staff 2nd Edition- 2015-2017, remain offline. We have been negotiating with the courseware vendor to have access to the courses restored as quickly as possible.

Due to the extended outage of the courses, we granted a 30-day extension on the due date for all current employees who were due to complete the course before 5/31/2017. If the outage extends past May 5, we will request another deadline extension from IM-HR for affected employees.

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 or if you have individual employees who need an immediate extension of their deadline for this course.

Thank you for your continued patience.
