Update: Mandatory Title IX training for faculty/staff


Debbie Hart, Marshall’s director of equity programs, is expressing her appreciation to the hundreds of Marshall faculty and staff who have completed the Title IX training, required by the federal government, thus far.

The course is intended to help ensure an environment free from unlawful sexual discrimination in all aspects of the university experience.

“Thank you for your dedication and commitment to ensure safe campuses and centers at Marshall University,” Hart said.

Hart added that the Information Technology department at Marshall and Workplace Answers have worked diligently to ensure this offer is provided for all faculty and staff. Some new faculty and staff may have received the link later than others.

Faculty and staff have until Friday, Oct. 30, to complete the course, which was distributed by e-mail earlier this month. The e-mail, which was from Workplace Answers, contained a link to the training materials.

For your convenience, once you log on, you may take sections of the training as your schedule permits. It is not necessary to complete the training in one session.

If you have any questions or have not received an e-mail with the course link, please contact the Office of Equity Programs at 304-696-2597 or e-mail Hart. The university’s Sexual Harassment Policy is available online here.
