Overview

Learners of Sexual Misconduct Prevention for Faculty & Staff will gain awareness, knowledge, skill, and self-confidence to effectively recognize, report, and prevent sexual misconduct against students and peers. Through simulated practice, learners will be able to identify what constitutes sexual misconduct.

Institutions of higher education are required to provide training to meet the compliance requirements for sexual misconduct, discrimination prevention, and awareness as defined in the Clery Act, Title VII, Title IX, VAWA, and state and local mandates. To comply, faculty and staff must be trained to recognize, report, and prevent sexual misconduct against students and peers, as well as what constitutes sexual misconduct, from verbal sexual harassment to sexual and interpersonal violence.

This simulation meets these requirements and compliments our product Sexual Misconduct Prevention for Students.

The goal of Sexual Misconduct Prevention for Faculty & Staff is to gain awareness, knowledge, skill, and self-confidence to effectively recognize, report, and prevent sexual misconduct against students and peers.

Learning objectives:

  • Respond effectively to students’ report of sexual misconduct, avoiding secondary trauma and protecting their confidentiality to the extent permissible.

  • Evaluate how to make room for consent within everyday actions, while understanding it can be taken back at any time, and power differentials will always play a role​

  • Refer students who have experienced sexual misconduct to reporting options and on- and off- campus resources

  • Examine your role in creating and maintaining a safe and positive work environment​

  • Apply safe, positive, actionable strategies for intervening in situations where there may be misconduct or the threat of impending misconduct, including incidents involving any gender dynamics and rape-tolerant attitudes

  • Build and maintain professional, appropriate, and healthy relationships with students, all while being mindful of the power differential​

  • Identify and prevent harassment through the use of bystander/upstander skills

For Responsible Employees (Mandatory Reporters Only):

  • Understand and apply the requirement to provide students with information about: (1) available confidential resources for victim advocacy, counseling, and other support services; (2) their right to file a Title IX complaint; and (3) the option of reporting to campus or local police

  • Understand how and where to report sexual misconduct​

  • Understand the school’s and state’s sexual misconduct policies and procedures​

  • Understand and define harassment, sexual misconduct, and consensual relationships ​

  • Review the duty to report sexual misconduct and consequences for failing to report​

  • Understand the procedures for responding to a student’s request for confidentiality​

  • Recognize behavior or other warning signs of sexual misconduct​

  • Recognize discrimination, protected categories, and bias​

Research shows that with experiential practice, increased emotional engagement and reflective thinking leads to stronger self-efficacy and behavior change.

The training in this simulation meets the compliance requirements for sexual misconduct and discrimination prevention and awareness as defined in the Clery Act, Title VII, Title IX, VAWA, state and local mandates.
