Deadline is Approaching

Thank you for assisting your faculty and staff who are due to complete their harassment prevention (HP) education course this quarter. For the third quarter of the fiscal year 2021, we have 1,031 employees remaining who are due to complete an approved HP course before the quarterly deadline of March 31, 2021. 

Please run the Compliance & Qualifications (CQ) report, Harassment Prevention Compliance Individual Deadlines within the Quarter, for your units and strongly encourage identified employees to complete one of the online courses ASAP. 

Online course completions are uploaded automatically each night, typically after 10:00 PM, and are visible in CQ the following day.

Additional Reminders:

  1. Enrollment for the online courses is available from the Compliance & Qualifications website.
  2. Approved courses:
    1. Employees may select one of the following online courses:
      Online Courses:
      1. Harassment Prevention and Response- for Non-Academic Administrative Officers / Non-Supervisors  OR
      2. Harassment Prevention and Response- for Academic Administrative Officers / Supervisor
    2. Instructor-led Course: Due to the COVID-19 restrictions on face-to-face meetings, no instructor-led courses are currently being offered. Please refer your employees to the online courses or contact EOD (diversity@uiowa.edu) if your employee is unable to access the online courses.
