Equal opportunity training courses available Nov. 1 and Dec. 1

Oct. 28, 2016

Dear UNT faculty and staff,

The Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity will launch two equal opportunity training courses this year. The courses will be available online, and will be delivered to full-time employees through the training vendor WeComply/Thompson Reuters.

The first course, “Preventing Discrimination and Harassment for Managers,” for supervisors and managers of full-time employees will be available Nov. 1. This course will provide strategies for managers to prevent and respond to discrimination, which is prohibited by UNT policy 16.004 regarding Nondiscrimination/Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action, and Non-Retaliation.

Employees who completed the “Preventing Discrimination and Harassment for Managers” course in the August 2016 rollout are not required to retake it.  Employees who started the course but did not complete it must complete this one.

The second course, “Preventing Sexual Misconduct,” is for all full-time employees and will be available Dec. 1. This course will satisfy the requirement in Section VIII (C) of UNT policy 12.005 regarding Prohibition of Sexual Assault and Retaliation, which requires that university employees complete an educational program on the nature, effect and prevention of sexual assault every two years.

Employees who are required to complete these courses will receive an email informing them when their course is available.

This email will come from staff in the Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity, and will include a link to the Office of Equal Opportunity webpage where the course will be hosted. Please use your EUID and password to access this course.

Participating employees will have the option to print their course completion certificate once they have passed the quiz at the closure of the course. Please note that all course participants are responsible for printing their course certificates and preserving them.

For more information, please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity at oeo@unt.edu.

Sincerely,
Neal Smatresk
President
