Online Harassment Prevention Courses Relaunched on Aug. 31st and Quarterly Deadline Approaching Sept. 30, 2020

The university’s online harassment prevention (HP) education courses were relaunched on Mon., Aug. 31, 2020. Enrollment is available again via the Compliance & Qualifications system. The courses have been updated by our vendor due to recent changes in the federal Title IX regulations. All employees utilizing these online courses will need to start from the beginning of the course.
