In order to help prevent and respond to sexual assault, relationship violence and sexual harassment, Student Life requires training of all staff. New staff must complete this training within 90 days of hire. Directors should determine if the staff take this training online or in-person. Student Life Human Resources can also come to your department as a supplemental session to discuss this important topic. Please contact your HR Generalist for more information.
