The University of Cincinnati Mounts an Online Program to Combat Racial and Sexual Harassment

The University of Cincinnati is requiring all faculty and staff to complete an online training program on racial and sexual harassment. Students are also being asked to participate in the training program. There are four tracks for different campus constituencies: faculty, staff, students, and supervisors.

George Wharton, director of the equal opportunity office at the University of Cincinnati, says that the program “is formatted to encourage awareness and prevention of harassment and discrimination. The program outlines current law on harassment and includes examples to illustrate words and behaviors that might reasonably be regarded as discriminatory.”

At the conclusion of the online training session, the viewer will be given a 15 question test to certify that they have mastered the course material. If they fail the test, they can retake the program again until they pass.
