The university is committed to creating a safe and respectful learning environment. As part of that commitment, the university requires that all students, faculty, and staff meet an annual training requirement. These trainings also help the university meet its obligations under Title IX, VAWA, and the Clery Act. Online trainings are available for undergraduate students, graduate and professional students, and faculty and staff. All trainings deal with sensitive topics in a frank and engaging manner. If a member of the campus community has been personally impacted by sexual misconduct and is concerned about taking the training, options are available. More information about each training is listed below. The trainings have been developed by Catharsis Productions, whose mission is "to change the world by producing innovative, accessible and research-supported programming that challenges oppressive attitudes and shifts behavior."
