Training Opportunities

Many members of our campus community have contacted HR to inquire about 2019 training course requirements. The only current compliance training requirement is the Division of Human Resources (DHR) required Cybersecurity training which were sent via email on Monday, Feb. 25. These training modules must be completed by Friday, Mar. 29.

New training modules for topics such as Title IX, Harassment Prevention, Conflict of Interest, FERPA and others can be accessed through the Talent Management System.  If you have previously completed training modules for these topics, you are not required to complete any new training in 2019. Instead, we have decided to pause assigning new trainings until we have a chance to work with campus departments and stakeholders to define desired outcomes, and build a more comprehensive compliance training plan. Thanks for your patience as we research and prepare a plan for the future.  

New Employees since January 1, 2019 will be assigned the following trainings on their Action Lists. We will assign these at the end of each month.
