Sexual Harassment Prevention
The University of Utah requires that all new employees complete training that addresses sexual harassment through mandatory orientation provided by Human Resources. Additional courses dealing with sexual harassment are also offered through the Bridge Learning Library in CIS. Customized training for students, departments, and university programs is available from the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (OEO) by request.
Free & confidential victim services can be accessed through the Center for Student Wellness and additional resources can be found at safe.utah.edu.
Federal sponsor sexual harassment policies:
- NIH Anti-Sexual Harassment Policy

These policies require that the University report allegations of sexual harassment or assault.
