Title IX Training: Sex and Gender Based Discrimination
Why is UAA requiring everyone to complete Title IX Training?
NOTE: Please scroll to the end of this page for instructions to access Title IX training.
UAA is committed to working together to provide a healthy climate that ensures a safe environment on all UAA campuses in which to work and learn.
Part of creating a healthy community is providing campus-wide approaches to health and using tools such as Title IX Training: Sex and Gender Based Discrimination. The University of Alaska Anchorage takes its’ responsibility to ensure health and safety seriously – we want to work together with our entire UAA community to create the healthiest campus possible. UAA is committed to providing an academic environment where everyone can live, study, work and have fun safely.
Sex discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence, is a national, state, community and campus issue. We recognize that we must work together to address this issue. We also recognize that training does make a difference by changing attitudes and raising awareness, therefore we support mandatory Title IX Training: Sex and Gender Based Discrimination for all faculty, staff and students.
The Title IX Training: Sex and Gender Based Discrimination module is an interactive online and educational training tool that provides information about sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking and sexual harassment. Title IX Training: Sex and Gender Based Discrimination provides a basic understanding of the issues, available resources and how we can each support our friends, co-workers and fellow students who may be at risk for, or be impacted by this type of discrimination. With awareness comes the ability to take preventive measures to make our campuses safer.
Faculty, staff and students can champion prevention efforts and model the behaviors for our campus. Education on these issues will protect individuals in their own lives, identify ways to be in support of student survivors, and provide empowerment to help create change on campus.
Who is required to complete the Title IX Training: Sex and Gender Based Discrimination?
All students, faculty, and staff of the University of Alaska Anchorage and its community campuses.
What if I completed another training about sexual harassment and sexual violence at another school or with another employer?
Some individuals may have had previous sexual harassment including sexual violence training in another workplace or at another university. Title IX Training: Sex and Gender Based Discrimination is intended to be foundational but it also includes information about the university’s policies, how to report, resources available for our location and how we at UAA can support each other. This training is mandatory regardless of previous training.
When do I need to complete the training?
EMPLOYEES must complete this training by September 30, 2017. There is a 30-day intersession and then you will be invited to complete a survey, and in the case of students, a short session on prevention, safety and supporting survivors.
STUDENTS must complete the training by October 31, 2017.
Does UAA have access to my course information?
The courses may include surveys to help personalize the experience and measure participants’ attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are anonymous – the institution will only receive aggregate survey data (i.e. for the group as a whole) and will never see individual answers. All survey responses are completely de-identified and are never tied to an individual participant's registration information. In addition, all survey questions are optional and are not required to complete the course.
What if I am under the age of 18?
This training is designed for students age 18 and over. If you are a dual enrolled student (enrolled in high school and college courses) and under the age of 18, you are not required to complete this training.
What if I take classes or teach at more than one UA campus?
