In 2018, New York State enacted a requirement that all employers, including the University at Buffalo, ensure that their employees complete sexual harassment prevention training by October 9, 2019.
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion is providing two different options for completing the training: an online program through UBlearns, and in-person sessions. EDI is offering open sessions that employees can register for. Departments, schools, and administrative units can also choose to schedule a dedicated in-person session for their employees.
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion has developed an online program that meets all New York State requirements for sexual harassment prevention training. This program is available in UBlearns, and is comprised of three sections:
The University at Buffalo is offering an online harassment prevention course in UBlearns. Completing this course is one way of meeting your obligation to receive sexual harassment prevention training.
Ensure you are using the current version of Chrome, Firefox or Safari as your browser (not supported with IE - Internet Explorer).
All employees will take the training via UBlearns
The University at Buffalo will provide reasonable accommodations to ensure individuals with disabilities have equal access to the training content. Please contact Equity, Diversity and Inclusion by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (716) 645-2266 for assistance.
EDI will be providing live, 30-minute training sessions for departments and employees who would prefer an in-person training. These sessions will include all of the New York State-required information, as well as information for faculty and professional staff about their obligation to report when they become aware of sexual harassment or sexual violence experienced by students.
Employees may register for an open session on the North, South, or Downtown Campuses.

Supervisors, managers, and unit leaders can schedule an in-person training for employees in their area. Complete a training request form and indicate "Sexual Harassment" in the topic section.
Training can be a formal, structured session, or you can invite us to meet with your faculty or staff during a regularly-scheduled meeting. We can customize a format and timeframe that meet your needs.
