Full course description
Baylor University continues to develop a campus culture of care. Our role as a prominent Christian University demands that we create a safe and secure environment within which all members of our community - faculty, staff, and students - can learn, thrive, and become the people God has created them to be. Every faculty and staff member plays an integral part in fostering a campus culture characterized by dignity, integrity, safety, and respect.
One step towards creating and maintaining a safe environment is continuous communication and education of our community. All faculty and staff are required annually to complete the Intersections: Preventing Harassment, Discrimination, & Sexual Violence online course.Intersections, Part I: Protecting Employees engages employees and raises their awareness about harassment and discrimination by explaining the law, as well as how to recognize harassment and discrimination, and report misconduct to the appropriate person. It provides them with practical tips on helping maintain a safe, inclusive environment for work, including safe and positive options for bystander intervention, advice on using inclusive language in the workplace, and information on microaggressions.
Intersections, Part II: Protecting Students, trains employees how to identify and report sexual and interpersonal misconduct against students, covering awareness and prevention subjects required by Section 304(a)(5) of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (known as the "Campus SaVE Act"), as well as Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972.
