Training and education are fundamental to maintaining an environment free from discriminatory harassment and retaliation.​ Educating employees on unacceptable behavior and the consequences they face is not an option, but a requirement. Effective training clarifies what is — and isn’t — acceptable. It ensures that employees have consistent information; everyone should be aware of the expectations, rules and standards of behavior.

Training is an Essential Tool

​Compliance, Diversity and Ethics offers a variety of learning opportunities to help you develop professional skills and meet personal goals.

Managers, supervisors, faculty, deans and department heads are responsible for informing employees who are under their direction or supervision of Mason's policies prohibiting discrimination, harassment and retaliation.

All employees are required to complete a session on Sexual Harassment Prevention and Equal Opportunity. 

In addition, we offer training on Ethics, Diversity and Cultural Awareness, Affirmative Action, ADA and custom training as well.

We also work closely with Human Resources to provide training that is unique to department or unit supervisors.

CDE offers a regular schedule of training sessions. If you don't see training on the topic you need, email CDE to discuss a custom session for your unit.
