NAU is committed to cultivating a diverse environment where all people are included, valued and respected. Staying up-to-date with the laws and university policies regarding prohibited discrimination and harassment, reporting of incidents and eliminating barriers for individuals with disabilities is vital to building an informed and welcoming campus culture. As part of NAU’s commitment to a safe working and learning environment for all, two new online courses are mandatory for all employees to complete. Those courses are:
- Harassment & Discrimination Prevention (approximately 90 minutes) (replaces Intersections)
- Accommodating Disabilities (approximately 60 minutes)
All current part-time and full-time administrators, staff, faculty, graduate assistants and student employees are required to complete Harassment & Discrimination Prevention and Accommodating Disabilities no later than Jan. 13. Recently hired employees who have taken Intersections or the new Harassment & Discrimination Prevention within the last 60 days are not required to retake that training but are required to complete Accommodating Disabilities. As always, all new employees will be required to complete mandatory courses within 30 days of their hire date.
You will receive initial and reminder emails to your NAU email account from firstname.lastname@example.org, the program vendor, and from the Equity and Access Office. To access the training course you will be required to enter your NAU username and password. When you arrive at the EVERFI website (either by following the link in the email or by going to the Training section of the Equity and Access Office website), you will see the “My Courses” page where you can begin the courses, see your progress, and print your completion certificates. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Equity and Access Office at (928) 523-3312 or EAOTraining@nau.edu.
As professional development opportunities, each employee also will be enrolled in the following courses, which are not mandatory at this time:
- Diversity: Inclusion in the Modern Workplace
- Managing Bias
