Training and education are fundamental to maintaining an environment free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Managers, supervisors, faculty, deans, directors, and department heads are responsible for informing employees who are under their direction or supervision of the University's policies prohibiting discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Student Affairs administrators are responsible for providing this information to the student body.
EOCR is responsible for providing education, training, and technical assistance to ensure members of the University community understand how to recognize discrimination, harassment, and retaliation and how to respond promptly and appropriately if someone observes or experiences such conduct. EOCR will conduct workshops and seminars on these issues and other relevant subjects. EOCR also develops and maintains informational materials that explain in simple, understandable terms the University's policies and procedures concerning discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Copies are available at the EOCR offices and at other offices where individuals are likely to seek counseling and advice regarding discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
