Re:       CSU Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation (DHR) Prevention Training


The CSU is committed to providing all employees and students with an educational and working environment that is free from illegal discrimination and harassment. To ensure that all employees—on all 23 campuses—receive information on what is illegal discrimination, harassment and retaliation (DHR) in the workplace, the CSU is requiring DHR prevention training.  This is in addition to Title IX training—EDU: Eliminate Campus Sexual Violence—assigned to all CSU employees earlier this year.


In other words, in addition to other required trainings, beginning this academic year, all CSU (state) employees will be required to complete one of the following two trainings:

o   CSU: Preventing Discrimination and Harassment for Non-Supervisors – DHR training assigned to employees who don’t provide work direction to others. 1 hour every year.

o   EDU Supervisor: Anti-Harassment, Discrimination, Retaliation – DHR training assigned to employees who lead or provide work direction to other employees. 2 hours every two years.


Non-supervisory employees will be assigned the “CSU: Preventing Discrimination and Harassment for Non-Supervisors” e-course. The Development and Training System (DTS) will email you if you’re assigned this training. The course will be assigned soon and due May 31, 2016. If you are sent a notice, please schedule time to complete this training. The course will be due again one year from the date you finish the training. Supervisory employees will continue to be assigned “EDU Supervisor: Anti-Harassment, Discrimination, Retaliation” in accordance with their already established training schedule.


Faculty who are unavailable to take the training because of their FERP schedule or sabbatical leave can obtain an extension to complete the training by contacting the Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation (DHR) Prevention Administrator—Dylan Saake—upon their return.
