2017/01/18 – Online training for university’s Sexual Misconduct Policy - Human Resources at Ohio State

Online training for university's Sexual Misconduct Policy

Ensuring a safe and healthy climate for our students, faculty, staff and all members of the university community is Ohio State’s top priority. As part of a comprehensive effort to enhance the health, safety and wellbeing of our community, the Office of Human Resources has created a new online training opportunity for the university’s Sexual Misconduct Policy. The training is now available and can be accessed on BuckeyeLearn.

“Understanding the Sexual Misconduct Policy” is an easily accessible, digital version of the in-person training provided by Human Resources. The in-person training will continue to be offered and registration is also available on BuckeyeLearn.

“Understanding the Sexual Misconduct Policy” is a 30-45 minute training that provides participants with key legal and policy details, as well as information on how to recognize, report and prevent sexual misconduct in professional and academic settings. While beneficial for all employees, the training is highly recommended for managers, supervisors and human resource professionals.

For Wexner Medical Center employees: This new training will replace the Sexual Harassment training currently available as part of the Basic Requirements CBLs on BuckeyeLearn. Staff who have already completed the Sexual Harassment training for this fiscal year’s requirements will not be required to take the “Understanding the Sexual Misconduct Policy” training this year.

At Ohio State, there is no place for sexual misconduct or violence of any kind. The university launched Buckeyes ACT in 2015 as a comprehensive plan to combat sexual misconduct and relationship violence. Training is an integral part of Buckeyes ACT. Ohio State also provides an online course for students, faculty and staff about preventing and responding to sexual misconduct and relationship violence. Combined, the prevention and Sexual Misconduct Policy trainings provide the most comprehensive overview of federal, state and university regulations and responsibilities related to sexual misconduct and relationship violence.
