Harassment and Discrimination Training for Employees

Required Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Employees

Employees must complete training in the prevention of sexual harassment when they become a new employee and then again every three years. The training will empower you to become a leader in prevention by teaching you how to recognize and address sexual harassment and other forms of sexual misconduct, responsible employee obligations, university and community support resources, and bystander intervention skills.

To fulfill this requirement, you can either attend an in-person training or take an online training. If you are on the Logan campus, we encourage you to take the in-person training instead of the online training.

Online Training 

How to Take the Training

Utah State will be using a new vendor for online employee training about Title IX topics during 2019-20. The course will be available by the end of August 2019 and you will be notified via email once you can take it.

In-Person Training 

Training Types

  • New Employee training is for employees who were hired within the past 6-12 months OR employees who have never taken a sexual harassment prevention training through USU.
  • Update training is for employees who have previously taken a sexual harassment prevention training through USU.
