Student employees

Student employees are required to complete both the employee training at the start of their employment and the student training, as the content and focus is different.

All UWM employees

All UWM employees are required to complete an online course entitled “Intersections: Preventing Harassment & Sexual Violence” (Title IX/Campus SaVE Act). This 90-minute course (available in two parts) is a UW System requirement and fulfills federal expectations concerning the institution’s Title IX obligations. In this two-part course, employees will learn:

  1. How to recognize harassment and discrimination, including sexual harassment and misconduct.
  2. What the law says about harassment and discrimination, including relevant legal definitions.
  3. Practical tips for maintaining a safe environment and reporting misconduct.
  4. Advice on using inclusive language and information on microaggressions.

All new employees are required to complete this training within 30 days of their official start date.

All employees should have received an email with a direct link to the course, along with a personal username and password. Please notify your unit/division/college PREP immediately if you have not received this email. Your PREP will then ensure that you received the appropriate email so that you may complete the course. New employees will receive their course assignment via email as well. Please know that the emails are sent from lawroom.com.

If you are having difficulty locating the email that contains your personal link, username, and password, please view the PREP/UBR/Shared Services Directory and contact the HR PREP that is assigned to your particular school/division/college/or department and they will be able to assist you further.
