PULLMAN – “Eradicating discrimination and sexual harassment and fostering a respectful environment requires an ongoing, demonstrated commitment from all members of the university community,” said WSU President Elson Floyd in an April 2010 statement.
Human Resource Services and the Office for Equal Employment, in response to the president’s statement, have developed an online training program that includes WSU policy and processes through the WSU Online Learning System.
“The focus of this training is to assist WSU in maintaining safe and respectful working and learning environments,” said HRS Director Theresa Elliot-Cheslek.
Entitled “Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Prevention,” this course provides an overview of different types of harassment, describes applicable WSU policies preventing harassment and identifies specific WSU offices and resources available to help in cases of discrimination and harassment.
New online and instructor led training will be available beginning Thursday, July 29. The online training course can be accessed 24/7 by WSU faculty, staff and students throughout the WSU system. Additionally, live presentations will be provided to the general WSU community through HRS Training and Development. If desired, Colleges and departments may request to schedule presentations for their faculty and staff by contacting HRS.
