SVSH Prevention Training for Graduates

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 2022 graduate students:

  1. Title IX training (webinar or Canvas makeup) AND
  2. Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates (online training provided by Everfi)

**Graduate Students in the Education MAC Program who attended the in person Title IX training on July 22, 2022 are not required to attend the Title IX training on September 21st or to take any other action.

1. Title IX Training Information
An invitation to the F22 Title IX for Graduate Students Canvas course will be sent around October 5th to all students. All incoming graduates must accept the invitation in order to complete the mandatory assignment. Through this course students can access resource information throughout their time at UCSC and confirm their attendance in the webinar. If they were not present, they can complete the required make up by watching a video and passing a quiz.

Students were assigned to one of two sections depending on whether they attended the live webinar:

  • Attended Webinar-Completed Assignment section or 
  • Makeup Required 
**Students do not need to request the makeup and will receive the Canvas invitation sometime near October 5th. 

2. Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduates (SAPG) online program is provided by Everfi and is required in addition to the Title IX training for graduates. Students are sent automated email invitations and reminders from Everfi which includes information and a link to access the training.
