Anti-Discrimination Training

"The University will strengthen its commitment to providing an academic and work environment that is free of discrimination and harassment by educating all employees on the expectations of recognizing and preventing harassment and other types of discrimination."

- President Kirk Schulz


Technical Difficulties

Online anti-discrimination training continues with notices to faculty/staff email inboxes providing a link to take the training. Note that the email and link is specific to each individual so that the completed training can be appropriately recorded in HRIS. Please don’t share the email or link with others.

There were a few technical difficulties with the online anti-discrimination training.  In some situations faculty and staff members received duplicate requests to participate although they had already completed the training. We apologize for the duplication and you should no longer receive these reminder emails.

There were about 300 faculty and staff members who did not receive the email with the link to complete the training. These individuals will receive the email on or before September 12, 2014 with a request to complete the mandatory training by November 12, 2014.

Many thanks to the K-State family for their patience as we continue to improve our processes and systems to deliver this very important training to our community.

If you have questions, please email us at affact@ksu.edu or call 785.532.6220.
