Staff & Faculty

The Office of Equal Opportunity and Title IX hosts online and in-person training for staff and faculty regarding the prevention of unlawful discrimination and sexual harassment issues. The University, in compliance with state and federal law, requires all employees to undergo this training every two years.

There are two options for completing this mandatory training requirement. Please contact for more information about either of these options. You can also get set up for access to the online module by filling out the Online Training Request Form.

Staff and faculty need only complete one of the two options below to be in good standing with the training requirement:

  • EverFi Foundry Online Module: Online training is available and accessible to employees 24/7, 365 days a year. You can complete this training at your own pace. The training invites employees to consider the nature of harassment and discrimination. It provides practical tips on creating a safe, inclusive environment for work, including safe and positive bystander intervention options. Filled with engaging, interactive exercises, it covers all aspects of everyone's role in promoting a harassment and discrimination-free workplace. Topics covered in the training module include: 
    • Identifying and eliminating workplace harassment and discrimination based on "protected characteristics."

    • Understanding laws related to discrimination and harassment and responding to misconduct appropriately.

    • Addressing inappropriate behavior before it creates a "hostile work environment."

    • Recognizing abusive behavior and other misconduct, including microaggressions and unconscious bias, that may lead to workplace bullying or hostility, reducing productivity and creativity.

  • Live Workshops: Periodically throughout the year, the Office of Equal Opportunity and Title IX partners with a variety of off-campus firms and organizations to deliver live workshops that address the topic of workplace harassment prevention. Upcoming events will be shared on the SCU event calendar and emailed to staff and faculty in the weeks leading up to each workshop.

      • Workshop Description: During this two-hour Zoom workshop, Lida Rafia, Ph.D., and Liz Fernandez, Ed.M. will help faculty and staff develop culturally responsive and inclusive practices as a skillset through which we can better recognize acts of discrimination and sexual harassment. Rafia and Fernandez will unpack the various impacts of discrimination and harassment and outline our roles and responsibilities in putting an end to them. By the end of this workshop, you will have learned about language and resources that you can use to engage in dialogue about these issues with students and colleagues.
