Sexual Violence/Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Requirements for Graduate Students

In order to ensure awareness of graduate student resources and reporting options and in recognition of federal government regulations and UC system wide guidelines, all graduate students are required to complete an online sexual violence/sexual harassment prevention training.   

Incoming Winter Graduates 

Incoming graduates must complete BOTH an in person training and an online course.

In Person Title IX Training

Graduate students were invited to and are required to complete the In-person Title IX training which will take place on January 11th in Kerr Hall Room 61 at 12pm. 

Online Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates program

Incoming  graduates must also complete the online training program created by Everfi. The training takes about one hour to complete. Everfi is currently correcting technical errors so the training has not yet been assigned. Graduate students will receive an email once the training is live. Once live, the link to the Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates training assignment will be available at my.ucsc.edu.

If a graduate student doesn’t complete both of the required Sexual Violence Sexual Harassment Prevention trainings, a hold will be placed on their spring enrollment.  

These trainings are mandatory and there are no waivers. Alternate trainings are available for those who have difficulty with the content due to a previous experience of sexual misconduct. Please contact care@ucsc.edu to request an alternate training. All requests for alternate trainings will be kept confidential.

For our International Students and all who Cannot Access the Online Programs

Some international students find that the online programs are not viewable in their home country due to network or hardware configurations or limitations. We understand you may not be able to access these courses before arriving on campus. Once at UCSC, you can use a “campus computer lab”. The campus computer lab website provides information on locations, services, and hours available.

 

For those Without Access to Reliable Internet Besides a Mobile Device

We understand you may not be able to access these online programs before arriving on campus, but there are options once you do. The campus computer lab website provides information on locations, services, and hours available.

 

Accessibility

If you are unable to complete any of the programs due to a disability-related access concern, please email lyounghi@ucsc.edu. She/they will work to either resolve the barrier or provide an alternative training.

 

Continuing Graduate Students

The online training program Think About It: Graduates, was created by Campus Clarity and will be assigned to continuing graduate students in the winter term. It is administered by the Title IX Office to supplement in person trainings provided. Graduate students must complete the online program each academic year. If you completed an online program last year, you ARE REQUIRED to complete another this year.  UC Santa Cruz wants to ensure that all students are aware of the resources available to them, and repeated trainings were found to benefit retention of the material and reduce the occurrence of harassment in the community.

After the training has been assigned you can access the online training at www.campusclarity.com. Click "Login to Training." Use your UCSC email address to register. If you have already registered and have forgotten your password,  click forgot password and follow the directions. For technical support email ccsupport@everfi.com or call (800) 652-9546.

Students who would prefer an in person training assignment should contact lyounghi@ucsc.edu in order to sign up for an in person training.
