LawRoom

The LawRoom faculty and staff training will provide tools and tips to promote a harassment and discrimination free environment while highlighting the responsibilities of employees when reporting harassment, discrimination, and sexual misconduct. In particular, it is important that our students, faculty and staff know what resources are available, where to report concerns, and the process that is in place when at CMU when a concern is reported.
