New Course! Workplace Answers for Students
Greetings, EKU Students! We hope to clear up some confusion…
We’ve received a large number of phone calls and emails regarding a recent email you received from Workplace Answers informing you that you’ve been enrolled in an online training.
All EKU students are registered for an online training administered through Workplace Answers regarding harassment and discrimination, specifically as discussed under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX is a gender equity law that prohibits sex-based discrimination. It guides how colleges and universities respond to allegations of sexual misconduct. The training explains your rights under Title IX as an EKU student, as well as EKU’s Policy in addressing sexual misconduct. Do not mistake the email as junk/spam.
Please also note the following:
- All students are invited to complete the training.
- If you accidentally deleted the email you received, a new email will automatically be generated for you later in the month.
- Because the training is new, we have have not set a deadline for completion of the training. This will help you have time to complete the training without stressing your study schedules. When you have enough time, please complete the training at your earliest opportunity.
- Students employed by EKU may not receive an email because most have already completed the training.
- The online training is free of cost to you.
- The training will last about 60 minutes.
- You will not receive a grade or class credit for the training, but your participation will be documented.
- The training is being offered pursuant to the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act, Sec. 304.
Please let staff at the Office of Equity and Inclusion know if you have difficulty completing the course. The Office of Equity and Inclusion’s phone number is (859) 622-8020. The Office is located in the Jones Building, Suite 416.
