WeComply, Inc., a Thomson Reuters business and leader in web-based ethics and compliance training, has announced its Preventing Sexual Misconduct (Title IX) for Graduate Students training course. This 30-minute course focuses on the special responsibilities of graduate students to prevent sexual misconduct under Title IX. Graduate students must not only refrain from engaging in inappropriate conduct themselves, they must also know what to do when they observe or learn of inappropriate conduct by others.
The Preventing Sexual Misconduct (Title IX) course begins with a discussion of the important reasons for concern over sexual harassment on college and university campuses. The course then reviews anti-harassment laws and policies, defines sexual harassment and sexual violence and explains the different types of harassment and conduct to avoid. Additional topics covered in the course include reporting sexual harassment, responding to complaints, avoiding retaliation and maintaining a respectful environment.
“Recent enforcement efforts by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights has resulted in several highly visible settlements of sexual-harassment cases at prominent universities and serves as a strong reminder to schools of their Title IX responsibilities,” said Steve Perreault, Global Head of eLearning. “Our Preventing Sexual Misconduct (Title IX) training is a key tool in helping universities ensure that faculty, staff and teaching assistants understand the requirements of Title IX and how to properly handle sexual-harassment complaints.”
