Preventing Workplace Harassment Online Training

Carnegie Mellon is committed to providing a respectful and motivating environment, free from discrimination and harassment.  Our online Preventing Workplace Harassment training course is designed to help you understand what constitutes harassment, how to avoid engaging in behavior that could be considered harassing, and what to do if you witness or experience harassment.

The course will take approximately 45 minutes to complete; all CMU employees are expected to complete this online training program. New employees will receive an email when they have been registered to take the online course. (Completing a previous version of online sexual harassment training does not satisfy the requirement for employees to complete this training program.)
