Workplace Harassment and Discrimination Prevention is a mandatory training for all faculty and staff. It is required to be completed within 90 days of hire, and again every two years (unless an applicable collective bargaining agreement has different requirements). This web-based training is designed to provide consistent base-line information and covers types of workplace harassment and discrimination, reporting obligations and resources that are available to all employees. If you have questions, please speak with your supervisor or contact Human Resources at 541-346-3195.
In-person trainings are offered to enhance employee understanding of prohibited harassment and discrimination and employee reporting obligations. These trainings build upon the base-line information provided in the web-based mandatory training. They offer employees the opportunity to learn more about what behaviors may constitute prohibited discrimination and harassment, to better understand employee reporting obligations and to gain practical tips on how to handle conversations and situations when they occur. In-person trainings are scheduled through the Human Resources Compliance and Training Officer.
The Ombuds Program provides customizable workshops for campus conferences, team meetings, department retreats, or other university events. The ombudsperson is often called upon to develop and/or deliver training sessions and workshops. Additionally, the ombudsperson can help facilitate forward-looking meetings (e.g., strategy sessions). If you or your group would like to explore something along these lines, please do not hesitate to contact them.
