UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary Miller e-mailed the following message to the campus community on Wednesday, February 8, 2017.
It is my pleasure to welcome you back to the beginning of the 2017 Spring Semester. I hope you have found time in the past month to rest and rejuvenate. As you know, UW-Green Bay is committed to maintaining a campus community that ensures each student, faculty and staff member can work and learn together in a place that is free of discrimination including harassment and sexual violence. Part of our campus’s vision provides for an environment that promotes personal and professional growth. Harassment in any form violates the dignity of an individual and threatens the integrity of this great University.
Eliminating and preventing harassment requires an ongoing, demonstrated commitment from all community members. Therefore, UW-Green Bay is launching new online training for all faculty, staff and students designed to prevent these behaviors and remind us about the importance of this topic. Faculty and staff will complete a course titled “Intersections: Preventing Harassment and Sexual Violence” which will be delivered to provide you skills to identify and prevent, guide conduct, and educate on the importance of reporting any and all abusive conduct. Included in this training is information on all forms of discrimination based upon protected characteristics along with information on UW-Green Bay’s policies and procedures.
In the next week, you will receive an e-mail from “University of Wisconsin- Green Bay” with the subject line “UW-Green Bay Harassment and Title IX Training.” The e-mail will include the information necessary to complete the training.
Training will take approximately one-hour and is self-paced, allowing you to come and go as you please until course completion. All faculty and staff must complete training by Friday, March 31, 2017. Additional courses on FERPA, Executive Order 54, and Ethics will be rolled out in fall 2017.
Please contact Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org or (920) 465-2846 with any questions and/or to request a reasonable accommodation. Thank you for your commitment to providing an environment free of harassment and sexual violence.
