Title IX training due by October 31

September 15, 2023

Thank you for your work toward creating a welcoming, inclusive environment where students and other employees feel safe and supported. The university provides tools to assist you in knowing what to do when you become aware of difficult situations, including sexual harassment or assault, through Title IX training and online resources. Annual UA Safe Title IX Training is mandatory and must be completed by October 31, 2023.

Employees will be taking the same highly-successful training developed in-house through the University of Alaska that students are required to complete. The online course is in Blackboard based on the latest version of university policy and guided by Federal mandates.

Following are online resources available to you:

UA faculty and staff are reminded of your duties as a “responsible employee.” University employees are required to report any sexual- or gender-based discrimination, including sexual assault and sexual harassment, they become aware of to their campus Title IX coordinator within 24 hours of becoming aware.

The key to creating a safe and respectful workplace is using the tools provided through Title IX training to stop sex and gender-based discrimination. All of us have to be responsible to prevent and promptly report all types of misconduct. Your continued dedication to this effort is appreciated.
