Mandatory training on sexual and gender-based misconduct

A new online module, “Cultivating a Culture of Respect: Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Awareness,” is now available.

This online program is mandatory for all U-M faculty and staff, including temporary employees (student and non-student), bargained-for and graduate student employees. The requirement is for one-time completion of the online module by Dec. 31. Please note, supervisors must allow time during working hours for current employees to complete the module, which takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.  

This new training is part of an education and prevention program recommended by a broad working group of faculty and staff experts.  The online module is the first step in a multilayered approach to a series of education and training programs designed to have meaningful impact on our campus and workplace culture.
