Important deadline information for required interpersonal violence training

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Dear Faculty and Staff,

On October 5, 2016, I sent an email notifying you that all faculty and some staff are now designated as responsible employees under Title IX. In order to understand your reporting obligations and ensure all campus employees are aware of their rights under Title IX and the university’s workplace violence policy, all employees are required to complete the Haven online training module.

It is very important that all employees complete this training by December 16, 2016. For your convenience, the original email with login information may be accessed here.

Please note, even if you have completed the supervisor’s training, you must still complete this online training module.

Employees play a key role in the lives of their colleagues and our students. There is a strong possibility that employees may be called upon to respond to students, staff or faculty in need. For this reason, all faculty members are now designated as “responsible employees” under Title IX. Staff members in supervisory roles with students or other staff are also designated “responsible employees.” The role of a responsible employee is to report allegations of sexual harassment/violence to the Title IX Coordinator in order to maximize the institution's ability to provide resources, investigate, and address sexual harassment/violence.

I do understand this is a busy time in the semester, and very much appreciate your time and dedication to making our campus a safer, more compliant environment.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this very important matter.
