Preventing Harassment & Discrimination

We are so glad that you are a part of the Ithaca College community. Here, we believe in the importance of creating a safe and healthy environment for all of our employees and communities. To this end, we are committed to providing trainings that will help us all be informed on topics vital to achieving our goal.

All Ithaca College employees and select affiliates are required to complete the Preventing Harassment and Discrimination Training on an annual basis.

All employees have the right to a workplace free from sexual harassment, and Ithaca College is committed to maintaining a workplace free from sexual harassment. Per New York State Law, Ithaca College has a sexual harassment prevention policy in place that protects you. This policy applies to all employees and student employees, paid and unpaid interns and nonemployees in our workplace, regardless of immigration status. 

If you believe you have been subjected to or have witnessed sexual harassment, you are encouraged to report the harassment to a supervisor, Human Resources, or Title IX. Please click here to review our complete policy and report form.

Completion of this course is required for all employees per New York State Law on an annual basis. The training is self-paced and will take most employees about 1 hour to complete. You do not have to complete the training in one session.
