Educational Programming & Training

At Central Michigan University, we are an inclusive community of scholars known for our warm, welcoming environment. It takes all of us, working together, to create and maintain a culture that is safe, caring, and supportive for every individual.

We take care of each other: We watch what is happening around us, notice potentially dangerous or serious situations, and respond – whether that means speaking up, stopping someone, or contacting the appropriate authorities or services. You are a part of this community, and we want you to feel prepared to continue the conversation that begins with these online training courses.

Discrimination, harassment, and violence can affect us all. This training will provide you with tools to promote a workplace free of harassment, discrimination, and sexual and gender-based misconduct. They also will address your responsibilities under Title IX. They are designed to help all employees recognize harassment and sexual and gender-based misconduct, and they provide practical tips to create a safe, inclusive environment. The training also includes safe and positive options for bystander intervention, inclusive language for the workplace, and an overview of the nature of microaggressions.
