Just for Higher Education - Harassment Training, Diversity Programs, Discrimination Training, and More
In 2014, the Department of Education initiated and completed Negotiated Rulemaking for the Campus SaVE Act and all campuses must be in compliance, and we can help! Fill out the request to the right for more information today.
Most colleges and universities have written policies that prohibit sexual and other unlawful harassment of staff, faculty, and students. Courts have found that having a policy is not enough; schools must also train their faculty, staff, and even student employees on the key concepts contained in your HR policies. It is important to provide sexual harassment training, unlawful harassment training, discrimination training, child abuse training, diversity programs and more for all administrators, department heads, and supervisors because they are responsible for disseminating and enforcing your policies.
The online courses offered by Campus Answers afford everyone an opportunity to become compliant in a relaxed environment.

Why Have Discrimination Training or Harassment Training Specifically for Higher Education?
Because most discrimination training or sexual harassment training courses are geared towards a business environment, they are unable to properly address these issues in the campus environment. Workplace Answers developed training specific to higher education’s many complicated relationships and power structures. These are often ripe for sexual harassment, discrimination, child abuse, bullying or other violations of key laws such as FERPA and Title IX. We have recently added a child abuse training suite to meet with merging mandates stemming from the recent scandals.
Colleges and universities must be hyper-vigilant to prevent unlawful behavior and spot potential issues before they grow into serious problems, particularly since there is the necessity of students working closely under the supervision of faculty and staff. Workplace Answers offers online training courses for the following critical campus compliance topics:
It is best practice that higher education institutions provide training on all of the topics above to ensure full compliance and to reduce the risk of a lawsuit as much as possible. We recommend that, at minimum, colleges and universities provide Clery Act / VAWA Training, Sexual Harassment Training, Unlawful Harassment Training, Discrimination Training, Child Abuse Training and Diversity Programs for all faculty, staff and student employees.
