Prevention, Education and Training
UND offers on-line, on-campus, and module-based educational opportunities for University students and employees for preventing and responding to discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct. We also provide resource guides that explain our process and provide information on support.
Trainings Provided by the EO & Title IX Office
The Equal Opportunity & Title IX Office offers a variety of customized on-campus or virtual training sessions that cater to both students and employees. These training sessions are designed to cover UND policies and procedures and discuss broader equal opportunity topics. Additionally, the Office offers the flexibility to adjust session length to fit scheduling needs. To request a training for your group, please consult the list of trainings and email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Training Request” in the subject line.
