Mandatory Trainings

Discrimination and Harassment Prevention

Tufts University is committed to providing a safe and positive workplace for all students, staff and faculty. In order to help achieve this goal and to comply with university, state and federal policies and regulations, Tufts’ Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) provides mandatory training regarding discrimination and harassment prevention. All staff and faculty (full-time, part-time, temporary) and student employees who have not already attended, are required to participate.

The Discrimination and Harassment Prevention training workshop is offered each semester on each campus to ensure that new employees and existing employees who have not yet attended this training are able to fulfill this mandatory requirement.

Trainings will take place in a confidential learning environment that includes a lecture, small group discussions, and activities. The 2.5 hour trainings cover the following topics and related Tufts policies:
