TRAINING OF EMPLOYEES
The University takes its responsibility to train its staff, faculty and student-workers on the University’s Policy Prohibiting Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence and Stalking very seriously. The amount of training required of an individual will depend on the level of involvement an individual may have in the reporting, investigating and resolution process of reported sexual misconduct.
All employees who interact with students, whether directly or indirectly, will receive annual training on the definition of sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking and the University’s reporting procedures for sexual misconduct, relationship violence and stalking.
Any employee potentially involved in investigating or adjudicating a report of sexual misconduct, relationship violence or stalking will receive additional training to include, at a minimum, best practices for conducting an investigation, trauma-centered sexual assault training, and training specific to the University’s reporting, investigation and resolution policies, which adhere to all legal obligations under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The University utilizes external consultants, legal counsel and local rape and trauma victim centers to bolster its training.
