Mandatory for ALL Graduate Students:
Violence Prevention Program Requirement - "Not Anymore" (1 training)
Graduate students must complete a one-time online interpersonal violence prevention training. A hold is place on a student’s registration to ensure that you meet this requirement.
Required once during your graduate career.
The University of Connecticut is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of our students, staff, and faculty. As part of that commitment, the University now requires that all graduate students complete an online interpersonal violence prevention program from Student Success™. Titled Not Anymore, this video-based program provides critical information about Consent, Bystander Intervention, Sexual Assault, Dating and Domestic Violence, Stalking, and more. Not Anymore will help you better understand how vitally important these issues are to creating a safe environment and to our community expectations, and what you can do to help make your campus safer for everyone.
Please go to https://studentsuccess.org/SSO/uconn to complete the 40 minute training. Upon completion, it will take 2-3 days for the hold to lift. If you have any questions, call The Graduate School at (860) 486-3617.
Mandatory for ALL Graduate Assistants:
Environmental Health and Safety—Employee Safety Training Assessment (ESTA)
Required within the first week of your employment.
As a University of Connecticut employee, you are required to complete an Employee Safety Training Assessment (ESTA) with your supervisor using your area's Workplace Hazard Assessment (WHA) within the first week of your employment, and prior to assignment of any duties in which you may encounter safety hazards. This tool will help you learn which safety training courses are appropriate for your new position. With your supervisor’s support, you must register for and complete EHS safety training prior to beginning any potentially hazardous duties.
If you are a lab Teaching Assistant you will also be interested in the Undergraduate Lab Safety Initiative. This does not require you to take any additional safety training; however, it does explain your role as a community leader and ambassador for safety in the classroom.
Annual Compliance Training 2020/2021
Required EVERY YEAR during your graduate career.
All Graduate Assistants are required to complete annual compliance training. This year’s training will focus on the University's Compliance Program, the Code of Conduct, and the University's Guide to the State Code of Ethics. Please note that consistent with Article 13 of the Graduate Employee Union contract, this training is considered part of the workload of graduate assistants. The training should take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
Training is available online, through Learning@Work.
Diversity Awareness and Sexual Harassment Prevention Trainings 2020/2021 (2 separate trainings)
Required once during your graduate career.
The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) in partnership with the Office for Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) will present several 3-hour Diversity Awareness Training sessions and 2-hour Sexual Harassment Prevention Training sessions throughout the 2012 – 2021 Academic Year. These one-time training mandates are required for all University graduate assistants. You must attend both trainings once during your employment/assistantship with UConn. Trainings should be completed by graduate assistants during their first semester assistantships (i.e. by December 31, 2020 for those who began in August 2020 and by May 15, 2021 for those who began in January 2021).
