Mandating the Course

Deans, department heads, managers and supervisors are strongly recommended to mandate this program for employees, to send an unequivocal message that unlawful harassment will not be tolerated and to encourage those who are experiencing harassment to report it.  Mandating the training also provides employees with information they need to ensure they comply with UB’s Discrimination and Harassment policy.  Managers and supervisors can assign the course to employees and track completion through UB's Learning Management System, UB EDGE. EDI can provide completion reports to units listing the individuals who have completed the course via UBLearns.
