OIEC mandatory training for new staff and faculty includes information on the Sexual Misconduct Policy, the Discrimination and Harassment Policy, and the Conflict of Interest in Cases of Amorous Relationships Policy. Both the online and on-site presentations focus on the real-life application of these policies and the way in which cases arise in the classroom, workplace, and living environment.
If you would like to request an on-site or customized training for your department, or if you have questions about the online training, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call OIEC's main number at 303-492-2127.
The online training is offered through SkillSoft for faculty, staff, and student employees, either to meet the initial training requirement as a new employee or for their five-year refresher training. Employees must be set up in HCM in order to access the online training.

** All CU Boulder employees are required to take the Sexual Misconduct, Discrimination, and Harassment training course within the first 30 days of employment with the Boulder campus, and all CU Boulder faculty members must complete the training within their first semester of employment. After completing this initial training, all employees and faculty members are required to take a training at least once every five years, although some departments require employees to complete the training more frequently. If you have completed an on-site training in the past five years, you do not need to take the online training course until your five years has expired.
To educate our undergraduate students and create a welcoming and safe environment, the University of Colorado Boulder requires all incoming students to complete two, OIEC educational programs. All new (first-year and transfer) undergraduate students must complete each requirement in order to register for their second semester classes.

The Office of Victim Assistance offers training for students, staff and faculty to help respond to someone who has suffered a traumatic incident. This session will help with tips on how to respond to someone after a traumatic or life disrupting event including, but not limited to, sexual assault, intimate partner abuse, stalking, discrimination, and bias motivated incidents. When a trauma survivor is supported, it can help with healing and recovery, as well as increase the likelihood that they will seek out other professional support.
All of us have the responsibility to stop sexual assault. The White House released the “It’s On Us” video campaign, denouncing sexual violence and encouraging bystanders to be more effective in prevention efforts. At CU Boulder, we support this campaign, and agree that it’s on all of us to recognize that we all can be a part of the solution. Please watch this 1-minute video, and listen to your fellow students, faculty, staff and administrators talk about the importance of ending sexual assault. We ask that you continue this discussion with your friends and colleagues, and take individual action to prevent sexual assault and create a safe environment for everyone on and off campus. Visit ItsOnUs.org.
The “Just Because” campaign was launched in fall 2014 to promote recognition that sex without consent is sexual assault.
