Faculty & Staff

As Faculty and Staff of Iowa State University, you are required to take one of the following courses:

EO Training – Supervisor

This course trains supervisors to recognize, prevent, and respond to workplace harassment and discrimination based on "protected characteristics." The course also helps supervisors address inappopriate behavior before it creates a "hostile work environment" by giving supervisor the skills necessary to reduce potential legal risks by recognizing and addressing abusive behavior and other misconduct, including microagressions and unconscious bias that may lead to workplace bullying or hostility, reducing productivity and creativity.

EO Training – Non-Supervisor

This training engages employees and raises their awareness about harassment and discrimination by explaining the law, as well as how to recognize harassment and discrimination, and report misconduct to the appropriate person. It provides them with practical tips on helping maintain a safe, inclusive environment for work, including safe and positive options for bystander intervention, advice on using inclusive language in the workplace, and information on microaggressions.

All faculty and staff, full-time, and part-time are required to complete their appropriate course. The Supervisor course is approximately 2 hours and the Non-Supervisor course is approximately 1 hour and they both can be completed in multiple sessions. You can access these trainings in Learn@ISU.

Please complete this training within your first 30 days of employment. Again, this is a mandatory training. In addition to this message, subsequent reminders will come from the Office of Equal Opportunity until you have completed this required course.

*Please note that both trainings will be available to you on your account.  We will have documentation that you completed one.  

Here are the instructions on how to access the training:

  1. Login to www.learn.iastate.edu
  2. Select “My Requirements” from the “My Menu” dropdown menu in Learn@ISU
  3. Find learning track “EO Training”
  4. If you supervise employees, click Launch by “Title IX Training - Supervisor”. If you do NOT supervise employees, click Launch by “Title IX Training - Non Supervisor”
  5. You only need to complete ONE of these trainings to be compliant, not both!
