Equity, Diversity and Inclusion is providing online and in-person training options to ensure that the University at Buffalo meets its commitment under New York State law to train all employees in sexual harassment prevention. These trainings inform faculty and professional staff about their obligation to report when they become aware of sexual harassment or sexual violence experienced by students.
UB and SUNY Child Protection Policies support UB and SUNY’s commitment to protect the safety and welfare of children on campus.
UB's Child Protection Training Part 1 and Part 2 outline the requirements of UB's Child Protection Policy. This course will help you to understand the obligations of employees, students and visitors under the policy, what to do if you witness or suspect abuse or inappropriate conduct toward a child, how the policy relates to programs and research involving children and employee obligations when granting campus access to visitors.
This course is highly recommended for all University staff and faculty, especially those who work with children as part of a University program or activity or through research or work activities.
Once you have completed UB's Child Protection Training, you may request a certificate of completion.
In cases where the custody, control, or supervision of children is entrusted to the university, SUNY's Child Protection Policy will apply. This video explains when the SUNY policy and training requirements apply, and how to access SUNY's Child Protection Training.
