Page IV: TRAINING AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

 < Previous Page

Training programs are proactive and preventative instruments used to assist the university’s compliance with sexual harassment and discrimination prevention laws and policies. They also serve as a tool in response to discrimination and harassment complaints. OEOD education programs focus on an array of issues affecting the environment of the university, including sexual harassment, diversity, discrimination, cultural awareness and affirmative action.

OEOD conducted 83 workshops and training programs, reaching an audience of close to 3000 throughout the campus and the medical center.  The chart below shows the types of programs we provided during the 2008-2009 year.

In addition to our two annual diversity series, Diversity in Medicine and the Diversity Development Program, OEOD launched a new Campus Conversation Series and coordinated the Religious Diversity Forum.  In conjunction with the International Center, we developed a program designed specifically for international scholars and post-docs which will be offered through the Center on a quarterly basis.

OEOD continued to provide instructor-led and online courses to satisfy the requirements of AB1825, the California law mandating sexual harassment prevention education for all supervisors, including all faculty (except emeriti, volunteers, postdoctoral scholars and student academic appointments).

In addition, the online sexual harassment prevention training for non-supervisory employees and students, offered through New Media Learning, was expanded to include a version specifically tailored to Teaching Assistants.   Approximately 400 individuals completed the New Media Learning online sexual harassment prevention course during 2008-2009.
 
Specific programs are listed in Appendix B.

The table and chart below illustrate each unit’s compliance with California law AB1825 as of June 30, 2009.  With a 95% compliance rate, UCI continues to surpass the system-wide compliance average of 84%.
