Equity & Diversity - Mandatory Online Training
Dear ETSU Employee:
Through ETSU's mission and vision, we are committed to treating people with dignity and respect. This core value involves all employees and affects our ability to educate our students and work together in an atmosphere conducive to building relationships on honesty, integrity, and trust.
We are pleased to inform you about four online training programs intended to raise your awareness of promoting a productive and respectful work environment. These programs, Preventing Sexual Harassment, Preventing Employment Discrimination, Title VI, and the Diversity Module will instruct and test you on various aspects of harassment and unlawful discrimination and will provide answers to common questions and suggestions for handling problem situations. Each program offers a convenient and practical means of recognizing and avoiding sexual harassment, employment discrimination, associated legal issues and diversity awareness. The programs outline the current laws on sexual harassment and employment discrimination and the University's policies and procedures for reporting incidents. These training programs help us meet our legal requirements (Titles VII and IX of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; Tennessee Code Annotated §49-7-122, 1993; Title VI; TBR Policy P-080) that all employees receive training periodically. ETSU has decided periodic training will be on a 3 year cycle.
These programs are planned as on-line sessions and may take 45-90 minutes each to complete depending on how many explanatory items in the training you pursue for additional information. You can complete the training on your office computer at your convenience any time within the time frame given. If you are interrupted, you can go back and pick up where you left off. They can also be accessed from your home computer.
At this time, we are asking you to complete the on-line training programs and mastery tests within 60 days of notice from the Office of Equity and Diversity. For Preventing Sexual Harassment and Preventing Employment Discrimination, you will select the training module corresponding to your employment status: Faculty, Supervisory, or Staff (Non-Supervisory). Every employee will be required to complete the training program and take the Mastery Tests for those programs that contain them. Successful completion of these training programs will automatically be recorded in your personnel file. If you want a personal copy of the completion certificate, you will have the choice to print the certificate while you are in the program.
You will be notified of refresher programs to be completed every three years. If you have any questions about these on-line training programs, please contact Tracy Barry at email@example.com or (423) 439-4445.
