Required NY State and NYC Harassment Prevention Training

Required NY State and New York City Harassment Prevention Training

Cornell is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and inclusive environment for all students, faculty and staff. We make this commitment because it is an essential part of creating a successful and equitable living, learning and working environment. Each member of our community benefits when our classrooms and workplaces are respectful and when the atmosphere is collegial and welcoming.

New York State and New York City require employers to provide annual training to their employees on how to address sexual harassment in the workplace. Cornell’s training is available on our internal learning management system, CULearn, and is entitled "Maintaining a Harassment Free Environment." We are asking all of our employees to participate in this important training by October 9, 2019.

Cornell has many resources for employees on this topic. These resources include our program for all new employees, "Respect@Cornell: Addressing Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment" (available to all employees on CULearn). The Title IX website and the SHARE website also provide additional information and resources for our employees.

Thank you for your engagement and attention on this very important issue. If you have any questions, contact any of the resources listed below. Please don’t leave your questions on this essential topic unanswered.
