Training Catalog

Provost Nairn sent out system-wide communication regarding revisions made to the Sexual Misconduct Policy that went into effect on October 1, 2018. The policy revisions included a new requirement for all employees to continually complete training on all OE-related policies. The training referenced in the policy administered by the OE, is titled, Discrimination & Sexual MisconductRead the full communication from Provost Nairn regarding the new training requirements.

On May 6, 2020, New Title IX regulations were announced by the U.S. Department of Education and Office for Civil Rights with a mandate to be in effect by August 14, 2020. The university has revised our system-wide Sexual Misconduct, Intimate Partner Violence, and Stalking Policy (Sexual Misconduct Policy) pursuant to updated legal requirements from the U.S. Department of Education under Title IX.

On August 18, 2020, all faculty, staff, and student employee compliance records were "reset." This means if you completed the Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct training before August 18, 2020, you are considered out of compliance with university policy and are required to retake the course. 

To simplify tracking employee training completion, as of January 1, 2019, all employees status related to training completion were reset to “out of compliance."

  • New employees are required to complete our online training within their first 90 days of employment.
  • Existing employees are required to take this training every three years.

There are three ways to complete the required training:

1. You can attend a 2 hour, instructor-led training hosted by Human Resources and the Office of Equity.


2. You can complete the online Skillsoft training on your UCDAccess Portal titled CU: Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct.

  • From your UCDAccess Portal home page select: "Skillsoft"
  • From the Skillsoft menu select: “University of Colorado – CU Denver | CU Anschutz”
  • Select sub-folder: “Human Resources”
  • Select course title: “CU: Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct, CU Denver/Anschutz Medical Campus”

3. You can request a 2 hour, instructor-led training* that is specific to your department. 


Note*: In alignment with the university’s concerns for the safety of our community in response to COVID-19, OE staff will be working remotely. As such, we may experience minor delays in our response times. Currently, we will not be scheduling in-person appointments or be available on campus. We will, however, remain available via phone, email and video conference.

You are able to track your training completion status and/or the training completion status of your department staff (if you are a supervisor), via a training summary

A training summary is a record of all trainings you have completed thus far, via Skillsoft. Training listed in an employee’s training summary is what the OE will reference to ensure all employees are complying with the new training requirement.

To access your personal training summary, follow these steps:

  • From your UCDAccess Portal home page, select the navigation bar in the upper right corner
  • Select “CU Resources”
  • Select: "Training"
    • If you are an employee and would like to view your own record, click “Training Summary”
    • If you are in a supervisory role, you can select “Supervisor Training Summary,” which provides a summary of training taken for your employees/department. 

Equity 101: What We Do: In this training, we will discuss our role on campus and the processes we follow when we receive a complaint. We will also discuss mandatory reporting obligations as responsible employees, what needs to be reported to our office, and an overview of the mandatory training requirements (required for all staff and faculty) to ensure compliance with University policy. If time allows, we may include videos, case studies, and other interactive activities and discussion. This training can range from 15 minutes to an hour. Please note, this training does not fulfill your mandatory training requirement. You are still required to complete the Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Training online and/or through an instructor-led course.   

No Longer on Stand-By: Active Bystander Training: Have you ever been in a conversation when someone said something biased that made you uncomfortable, but you weren’t sure how to respond? Or maybe you witnessed something happening to someone else and you weren’t sure how to support that person in the moment? You're not alone in those feelings! Many folks struggle addressing these types of situations. We’d all like to consider ourselves helpful people and we want to do what’s right; however, it can be hard to know how to act in moments where bias shows up. In this training, not only will we discuss the history, theory, and cognitive/behavioral processes of the bystander effect, we will also provide an opportunity to practice recommended intervention tactics. This training takes 1.5 hours. 

The OE may be able to provide a training for your department depending on what topic(s) you and your team are looking for related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). 

If we are not the appropriate department to fulfill your training request, we will (most likely) refer you/your team to one of the two DEI offices based on your/your department's campus affiliation. 

Prevention Together: Learn more about what we do and how you can help. This training will take approximately one hour to complete and covers the different types of sexual misconduct, techniques for safely intervening as a bystander, how to support a survivor, and reporting options. Available to all students in their Canvas portal, 24/7.
