Harassment Prevention Training, Designed Just For Campus Environments
Our Unlawful Harassment Prevention on Campus courses go beyond sexual harassment training to provide harassment training on other types of illegal harassment based on protected classes. The language and scenarios used in our Higher Education harassment training are designed specifically for a campus environment. This ensures that the harassment training will be extremely relevant to your learners which, increases retention of key harassment prevention concepts.
Colleges and universities must be committed to maintaining a campus environment free of unlawful harassment, intimidation, and exploitation - or face serious legal consequences. Harassment prevention training on key harassment concepts and policies will reinforce that sexual or other unlawful harassment of any member of the school’s community will not be tolerated, and it can also provide an affirmative defense in the event of a harassment claim or lawsuit.
