Faculty and Staff Title IX Training

All university employees (excluding undergraduate student workers and extra help employees who satisfy their requirements as part of the annual ethics training process in the fall) are required to complete the Faculty and Staff Title IX Training. This is an online course educating on rights and responsibilities to address, report and prevent sexual misconduct, and foster a safe, respectful learning and working environment, which is to be completed during the spring semester, annually.

The program will be available this year from:

March 1 - April 1, 2024


On March 1st, employees will receive log-in instructions and deadlines for completion through their official university email account, prompting them to complete their training. These communications will include instructions for accessing the course and employees will log into the module using their university netid and password.

This training is a mandatory, annual requirement, based on the Clery Act (Clery), the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), and the Illinois Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act. All employees*, including those on paid sabbaticals, are required to complete the course. It takes approximately 45 minutes to complete the module and this should be done on work time, unless otherwise directed by a supervisor. The course must be completed by 5:00 pm CT on April 1, 2024 and any employees not fully complete (partial completions will not be honored) will be disciplined for noncompliance, up to and including dismissal.

*Please Note: Undergraduate student workers and extra help employees are not required to complete the Faculty and Staff Title IX Training module. They satisfy their training requirements through the Seasonal, Temporary and Medical Resident Ethics Act Training in the fall.
