Supervisor Supplement - EO/Title IX Training Sessions
For supervisors who have completed the mandatory Equal Opportunity/Title IX training session, the Equity Office is pleased to offer a supplemental training opportunity. This session seeks to more fully address the responsibilities of supervisors in addressing potential climate issues in your work areas. Supervisors of full-time or part-time, professional or student employees are all encouraged to participate. Starting with a brief overview of NDSU policies and procedures for addressing Equal Opportunity/Title IX policy violations, attendees will spend most of this session with practical application, discussing "What to do if..." situations and case studies.
