SVSH Prevention Training for Graduates

The University of California, Santa Cruz is committed to preventing and responding to sexual harassment, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and gender discrimination. In order to ensure awareness of graduate student resources and reporting options all students are required to complete ongoing sexual violence/sexual harassment (SVSH) prevention training.  Incoming students must complete Title IX training (to learn about local campus resources and practices) and the online Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates (SAPG) program provided by Everfi, while continuing students must complete SAPG only. Graduate students that do not complete the required course/s will have enrollment holds placed pending their completion.

Mandatory Trainings for Incoming Graduate Students

Two trainings are required for incoming Fall 2023 graduate students:

  1. Title IX training: 11:00-12:00, Wednesday, September 27 (Join Zoom Meeting: Registration Link)
  2. Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates (online training provided by Everfi)

Title IX Training Information
An invitation to the Title IX for Graduate Students Canvas course will be sent to your UCSC emails by October 2. All incoming graduates must accept the invitation in order to complete the mandatory assignment. Through this course, students must take the mandatory quiz. They can also access resource information throughout their time at UCSC  

2. Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates (SAPG) online program is provided by Vector Solutions and is required in addition to Title IX training for graduates.

Alternative Options for Students who have been impacted by Sexual Violence

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 the confidential CARE Office by emailing to request an alternate training. Please include your student id and the name of the training you are requesting an alternative for. All requests for alternate trainings will be kept confidential.

Please attach your certificate or forward your email verification of completion from the Learning Center and include your student id and UCSC email address.
