The University at Buffalo is committed to ensuring that our faculty and staff can work in an environment that is free from unlawful harassment. To further this commitment, the University has implemented an online harassment education and prevention program designed for all employees affiliated with the University at Buffalo.
To assist supervisors in meeting their obligations, the University has also implemented a supervisor version of course.
UB has enrolled all of its employees, including student assistants, in the 2018 Intersections: Preventing Harassment & Sexual Violence (Title IX/Campus SaVE Act) training course.

You do not need to complete the course in one sitting. In fact, we strongly recommend that you set aside two or more separate times to complete the training. The software allows you to start where you left off.
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.
