Equal opportunity training courses available

Dear UNT faculty and staff,

In 2016, the Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity’s Office of Equal Opportunity launched online courses through WeComply to offer training for full-time employees. The following two courses will now be offered for other employees, as noted below.

“Preventing Discrimination and Harassment for Employees” will open on April 10. This course will provide strategies for preventing and responding to discrimination, which is prohibited by UNT policy 16.004 regarding Nondiscrimination/Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action, and Non-Retaliation. The course is for employees who did not receive equal opportunity training as new hires, or who have not received the supplemental training every two years as required by the Texas Labor Code, Chapter 21, Sec. 21.010.

“Preventing Sexual Misconduct” will open on April 17, and will be for part-time employees and individuals hired since December 2016. The course will satisfy the requirement in Section VIII (C) of UNT policy 12.005, 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. An employee will not be able to log in to the course unless they receive an email. This email will come from staff in the Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity, and will include a link to the OEO 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.
