Participating in experiential learning is an important part of every student's higher education experience. However, most students, both male and female, have no idea what to do when confronted with sexual harassment. Unwanted advances or sexually explicit gestures and jokes can be damaging to a student's confidence both during the internship and when seeking employment after graduation. In addition, many students are unaware when their own well-intentioned conduct might be viewed as unprofessional and offensive, putting them in jeopardy both academically and professionally.
Students are required to complete an online Harassment Prevention Training and receive a certificate to present to the Professional Development Coordinator. Completing this assignment will allow students to move on to completing the coursework within the BLPP curriculum, the Informational Interview (BINT 10400) and the Career Exploration Assignment (BINT 20400) as well as any field immersion, field experience, or an internship.
