Mandatory Harassment & Discrimination Training

Employee Requirement

Western requires all new employees to complete a mandatory Harassment and Discrimination Prevention training. Western has partnered with EverFi to provide this important learning opportunity, which reflects Western’s culture and values and is part of a national effort across college campuses aimed at decreasing harassment and discrimination, and preventing and responding to sexual violence and increasing safety for campus communities. The Harassment and Discrimination Prevention course prepares learners to cultivate and maintain a workplace culture that is resistant to discrimination, harassment and retaliation. Employees will be equipped with the information and skills that promote intervention, empathy, and allyship. This course also includes a section specific to requirements under Title IX and the Clery Act.

How do I access this training?

The CRTC will assign this training to all new employees following their start date. Upon assignment, new employees will receive an email invitation containing access instructions and any requisites for completion. All new employees should complete the online training within one week of being assigned to it. The training will take approximately two hours to complete. The student version of sexual violence prevention training is provided by Western's Prevention and Wellness Services.

Current employees who would like to receive training voluntarily may contact the the CRCT Complaince Manager at crtc@wwu.edu to gain access.

Exemptions

Western is sensitive to community members who have a personal history with sexual violence. Students, faculty and staff who feel this training would be unacceptably upsetting due to that experience may contact Prevention and Wellness Services at (360) 650-2993 (students) or the CRTC at (360) 650-3307 (employees) to discuss an alternative way to receive important information contained in the training.
