In support of Princeton University's commitment to creating and maintaining a campus environment free from any form of harassment, and in conjunction with the newly revised nondiscrimination/anti-harassment policy (.pdf) and grievance procedures, a new Web-based "e-learning" program on recognizing and preventing sexual harassment in the workplace is available. The primary purpose of the program is to educate all employees on the information necessary for each of us to do our part to protect the well-being of our community.
Faculty and staff may access the interactive program "Preventing Sexual Harassment" online (University NetID and password required).
Upon entry to the program, participants choose the module that most closely reflects their day-to-day responsibilities (e.g., teaching faculty, manager/supervisor, staff). The program walks through a series of questions and scenarios to aid in clarifying many of the nuances and subtleties that exist in situations where sexual harassment can occur. Upon conclusion, participants are required to certify their completion, and a record of completion will be retained electronically. Under the new anti-harassment policy adopted by the University and approved by the faculty, all staff and faculty must complete this online program. Each of us has a responsibility to ensure that we create and maintain a respectful and harassment-free workplace where all members of our community can thrive.
