Thank you for assisting your faculty and staff who are due to complete their harassment prevention (HP) education course this quarter. For the first quarter of fiscal year 2022, there are 928 employees remaining who are due to complete an approved HP course before the quarterly snapshot date of Sept. 30, 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:

  • Enrollment for the online courses is available from the Compliance & Qualifications website.
  • Approved courses:
    1. NEW: Employees are now assigned to the harassment prevention course based upon whether they meet the definition of an Academic/Administrative Officer/Supervisor as defined in UI’s Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct.
      1. If you or your employee believe they have been assigned to the wrong HP course, contact OIE by email (oie-ui@uiowa.edu).
    2. Online Courses:
      • Harassment Prevention and Response- for Non-Academic Administrative Officers / Non-Supervisors
      • Harassment Prevention and Response- for Academic Administrative Officers / Supervisors
