1) Why do I have to complete this training?

Each member of our university community has a responsibility to make our campus free from sexual violence and sexual harassment. As part of a systemwide effort to improve the prevention of and response to sexual violence and sexual harassment, UC is requiring all UC  faculty and staff, including student employees, to participate in annual training that will better prepare each of us to fulfill our role in preventing and responding to these incidents.
