Online Educational Programming and Training
As part of our ongoing efforts, CMU has partnered with EverFi, a national provider of educational programs in inclusion, substance abuse, healthy relationships, and staying safe. Through this partnership, CMU provides faculty, staff, and students with online, evidence-based training designed to help everyone cultivate and maintain a campus culture resistant to discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
As a university community, we have made the commitment to creating an inclusive environment for every individual; achieving this goal will depend on each of us accepting the personal responsibility for our education, awareness, and behavior. This EverFi training is an important first step in that process. I hope you will find it engaging and informative and that you are able to incorporate what you learn into your daily work at CMU.
Faculty & Staff Programs
Faculty and staff should complete the training called Preventing Harassment and Discrimination. Through a series of interactive exercises, this module provides tools and tips to promote a harassment and discrimination-free environment and outlines employees' responsibilities under Title IX. This training will take between 1-3 hours, depending on which course you are assigned.
New first-year and transfer students should complete the training called Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates. This training introduces students to our university-wide conversation on important issues relating to sexual and gender-based misconduct, such as healthy relationships, substance abuse, sexual aggression, and bystander intervention.
Returning undergraduate and all graduate students will also be assigned trainings designed to continue the university-wide conversation related to sexual and gender-based misconduct. This training will take between 30-45 minutes, depending on which course you are assigned.
