Preventing Harassment and Discrimination 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 Preventing Harassment and Discrimination training module. This is an online course regarding sexual misconduct and illegal forms of harassment and your reporting responsibilities as a University of Illinois employee, which is to be completed during the spring semester, annually.

The program will be available this year from:

March 1 - April 1, 2022


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 two hours to complete the module and this should be done on work time, unless otherwise directed by a supervisor. The course must be completed by 6:00 pm CT on April 1, 2022 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 Preventing Harassment and Discrimination training module. They satisfy their training requirements through the Seasonal, Temporary and Medical Resident Training in the fall.
