Title IX Training for FAS Staff and Managers

The FAS is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which no member of the community is excluded from participation in, denied benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in any University program or activity on the basis of sex, sexual orientation or gender identity.

More information on the FAS Sexual & Gender-Based Harassment Policy/Resources can be found here, and on Harvard's Title IX Office page. Information on what to do if someone approaches you with a Sexual or Gender-Based Harassment disclosure is available here.

To ensure that FAS staff are informed about these important topics and understand their rights and responsibilities under Harvard's new Title IX policy, online and in-person training is available.

Online Training for All FAS Staff
The Title IX training entitled "Bridges: Building a Supportive Community" is available to all FAS staff members via the Harvard Training Portal.

This course provides an overview of Title IX and the University Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment Policy (which applies to all Harvard University students, faculty, staff, appointees, or third parties). By the end of this course, we hope employees will have a better understanding of the Policy and our community expectations; how to recognize signs of possible sexual or gender-based harassment; and the responsibility of employees to share information about possible sexual or gender-based harassment with a Title IX Coordinator. The course also provides state-specific legal definitions of sexual violence, and bystander intervention strategies.

You may view this module on your computer at your convenience and you will have two months from the date you receive the email to complete the training.

Please note: New FAS staff hired from July 2014 on will automatically be invited to take this online Title IX training. Information will be sent directly to new hires via the Harvard Training Portal.
