Trainings and Education
The Office of Equity and Inclusion offers web-based and in-person educational programs on harassment and discrimination issues. OEI is available to participate in guest lectures, orientation sessions, and student programming, as well as meet with search committees. Additionally, OEI oversees the primary prevention education and bystander intervention training mandated by the Campus SaVE Act and the Clery Act through the coordination and implementation of the Green Dot Program.
The Office of Equity and Inclusion partners with EverFi, a leading education technology company, which serves as a third-party vendor to develop and deliver online prevention training sessions related to Discrimination, Harassment, and Title IX Awareness & Violence. EverFi's web-based training meets expectations communicated by the Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights, as well as the Campus SaVE Act and the Clery Act.
These trainings ensure that all members of the EKU are well informed on University policy as well as federal and state laws. Additionally, the trainings also reflect our institutional values of mutual respect, inclusion, and the celebration of diverse people and ideas.
Student EverFi Training
All incoming students receive the online Sexual Assault Prevention (SAP) training which discusses topics including sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, stalking, sexual violence, consent, and bystander intervention. The SAP training provides students with an understanding of these issues, the causes, and ways to actively prevent and promote a violence-free campus. The trainings also include information on University policies and procedures as well as federal and state laws and legislation relating to these topics.
Employee EverFi Training
All faculty, staff and student employees must complete online prevention training sessions related to Unlawful Harassment, Equal Employment Opportunity Laws & Discrimination, and Title IX Awareness & Violence.
ALL employees (part-time and full-time) must complete a training module once every two years as a condition of employment. All new employees must complete the training module within 30 days of their employment. (New employee data is loaded into the training system daily. This will generate an auto email prompt specific to each employee's training requirements.
Employees can initiate and re-enter the modules--they do not need to be completed in a single session. Supervisors should provide employees work time to complete the modules.

Green Dot Trainings
Green Dot at EKU works to prevent violence and improve the safety of the campus community through education, awareness, and bystander intervention. Our presentations to campus groups focus on how bystanders can intervene in troubling situations to stop dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking when they see it. While traditional prevention programs may approach certain individuals at the potential perpetrators and others as the potential victims, here at Green Dot we believe all students, staff, administrators, and faculty are allies and potential bystanders able to contribute to safe campus climate where our norms are intolerant of violence.
