Faculty and Staff Title VII and Title IX Training
Universities are under scrutiny regarding compliance with Title IX — the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender at educational institutions that receive federal funding. Title IX is in some ways analogous to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act that prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. Title VII prohibits sexual harassment in places of employment.
Title IX has broad implications. However, the most recent emphasis has been on sexual violence and its prevention. As a result, universities are making efforts to inform members of their communities about the provisions of Title VII and Title IX and to fulfill the mandates of these important pieces of legislation. Any university employee who works with students has federally mandated responsibilities for reporting possible incidents that are covered by this legislation.
As part of this effort, the OSU administration has worked to develop training for faculty and staff regarding possible incidents of sexual harassment and sexual violence. The federal requirement is to conduct regular training, which is widely interpreted as annual training. Training for full-time faculty and staff, part-time faculty and staff and student employees is now available online.
Below is a list of available online training specific to positions at OSU. Once you have determined the training specific to your position, please read through the instructions carefully. If you have any technical difficulties with the training please contact OSU in Tulsa Human Resources at 918-594-8221.
