Sexual Harassment Training

Through the services of Workplace Answers, the Office of Social Equity offers online training to faculty, staff and students of California University of Pennsylvania.

Do you know the definition of sexual harassment? Can you recognize a hostile environment? Have you read California University's policy statement on equal opportunity and social equity? If you answered no to any of these questions, this course is for you.  Also, it should be noted that on October 8, 2009, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) mandated that all universities conduct sexual harassment awareness training with new students. 

Additionally, the University is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex.  Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects persons from sex discrimination in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance. California University of Pennsylvania provides many resources to students, faculty and staff to address concerns relating to discrimination on the basis of sex, which includes sexual misconduct.  To this end, California University of Pennsylvania also offers online training regarding Title IX legislation.  Please find the instructions to complete these trainings below:
