Online Training for Preventing and Responding to Sexual Misconduct and Relationship Violence

As part of Buckeyes ACT, the university’s comprehensive plan to combat sexual misconduct and relationship violence, Ohio State is providing online training focused on preventing and responding to these issues.

The training is now available online, and we strongly encourage you to make every effort to complete this training as soon as possible.

This training depicts real life examples of sexual harassment, relationship violence and sexual assault with a focus on higher education. While many of the examples involve classroom, academic or other situations involving direct interaction with students, they can also be applied to the daily work environment. The training requires a 45-60 minute commitment. You can work at your own pace, including saving your progress and returning to the training, which will open to the page where you left off. More information, including instructions on how to launch the training, is available online.
