Given the recent legislative changes regarding Title IX, Sexual Assault and Interpersonal Violence on college campus, the Office of Diversity and Equity is providing several training sessions on the topics.
Currently all employees
at the university are expected to take either the online or in person training regarding Sexual Assault and Interpersonal Violence Prevention.
Both federal and state laws clearly prohibit sexual harassment, sexual assault and interpersonal violence in the workplace and education settings – and yet it happens. On campuses large and small, women and men find themselves the unwilling target of unwelcomed sexual conduct that creates a hostile environment. It is critical that all students, employees, including managers, understand both the full range of behaviors that define sexual harassment, sexual assault and interpersonal violence and the pro-active steps they can take to prevent it.
As part of its mandate to eliminate discrimination, the Office of Diversity and Equity provides training for CCSU faculty, staff and students.
This session will help you:
· Define sexual harassment and Title IX (including sexual assault and interpersonal violence prevention)
· Know which laws prohibit it
· Recognize specific behaviors that constitute sexual harassment, sexual assault and interpersonal violence
· Deal with a case in your office
· Recognize and handle retaliation
· Apply CCSU's policy to sexual harassment and Title IX cases
· Understand and fulfill your responsibility
