Those interested in becoming mentors or mentees can apply online for the program. Applications are due by noon May 29.

Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

All employees who supervise others are required to complete sexual harassment prevention training every two years. The campus will offer "Sexual Harassment Prevention Training: A Live Theater Performance" from 8:30-10:30 a.m. May 14 in COB 120.

This production is primarily for supervisors and managers who have not completed their assigned Sexual Harassment Prevention online training. However, there are many seats available, so the production is open to all staff and faculty members interested in attending. 

To register online, log in to the UC Learning Center using your UCMNetID. Type “SHP” in the search box. Select the course, click “register,” and then click “submit.” Please be sure to bring your CatCard to the training for an easy check-in process.
