Preventing Harassment in the Workplace and on Campus
The Office of Diversity and Equity, in partnership with Everfi, is pleased to provide the College Family with an updated and improved online harassment-free work environment training module.
The Discrimination and Harassment Prevention for Higher Education training is mandatory and requires retraining every three years. If you have completed the training within the last three years, it is not necessary for you to take the training again at this time.
If you are uncertain of when you last completed the training or have any difficulty accessing the course, please contact us at:

Non-discrimination Interview Strategies
Job interviews present a minefield of legal problems. One wrong question could spark a discrimination charge or lawsuit. Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of an applicant’s race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age or disability. State and local government laws also prohibit discrimination-based on factors such as marital status, pregnancy, and sexual orientation. If you ask a job applicant a question specifically relating to one of those characteristics, you have broken the law and may subject the College to a lawsuit.
This guide was developed to help the interviewer avoid discrimination during the interview process. The strategies outlined in this guide should help deflect frivolous unfair labor practice charges and employment discrimination claims brought by or on behalf of our applicants.
