Education & Presentations

Online Web-based Training for Sexual Assault Prevention and Harassment and Prevention Discrimination

We offer an online training program designed to strengthen Iowa State University's ongoing efforts to ensure everyone understands and follows our non-discrimination policies and procedures.

  • Faculty and Staff are required to take the Harassment and Prevention Discrimination training that relates to their role either as a Supervisor or Non-Supervisor. Both trainings are on each employees' Learn@ISU account. Please take the training that is most appropriate for your role. The other training will sit on your account as incomplete. 
  • Undergraduate and Graduate Students have the Sexual Assault Prevention training added to their courses in Canvas. They have two parts to complete. Once Part 1 is complete there will be a 21 day intersession before they can start Part 2. They will be notified when Part 2 is available to them. 

The courses are interactive and include examples of many challenging and interesting real-life workplace and higher education situations.

Please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity at 515-294-7612 or if you need an accommodation for these trainings.
