Discrimination and Harassment Online Training
The Office of Discrimination and Harassment (ODH) mandatory training is offered in an online format through SkillSoft (formerly SkillPort). Faculty, staff, and student employees can all take the online training, either for their initial Discrimination and Harassment training as a new employee or for their five year refresher training. Employees must be set up in HRMS in order to take the training.
This online training replaced our on-site training sessions. However, if you have been instructed to attend an ODH training during orientation, please be sure to attend that on-site training. Additionally, if you want to request an on-site or customized training for your department, or if you have questions about the online training, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
or call the ODH main number at 303-492-2127.

**Please note: All CU-Boulder employees are required to take the Discrimination and Harassment training course within the first 30 days of employment with the Boulder campus, and all CU-Boulder faculty members must complete the training within their first semester of employment. After completing this initial training, all employees and faculty members are required to take a Discrimination and Harassment training at least once every five years, although some departments require employees to complete the training more frequently. If you have completed an on-site training in the past five years, you do not need to take the online training course until your five years has expired.
On September 11, 2013, the Chancellor issued the following mandate regarding Discrimination and Harassment Training:
Office of the Chancellor
UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO BOULDER
At the University of Colorado Boulder, we are committed to providing a community free of discrimination and harassment based upon race, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, age, disability, religion, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and veteran status. By doing so, we create a positive learning, working and living environment for all members of the University community.
As Chancellor, I am personally committed to creating a campus culture that is free from the effects of a hostile environment. Let’s work together to reduce and prevent discriminatory and harassing acts and sexual misconduct and assaults. I ask that you join me or renew your own personal commitment to creating this campus culture at the University of Colorado Boulder.
To educate ourselves and create a welcoming and safe environment, the University of Colorado Boulder requires all faculty, staff and student employees to complete discrimination and harassment training according to the following schedule:
- Staff and student employees: within first 30 days of employment
- Faculty: within their first semester of employment
- Everyone: after initial training, again at least once every five years.
We also require volunteers, affiliates and students who interact with K-12 student populations to take the training.
For any questions regarding discrimination and harassment, the education and training programs, or reporting procedures, please contact the Office of Discrimination and Harassment at 303-492-2127. The Guidelines for Filing a Complaint of Sexual Assault or Sexual Harassment provide detailed information on how to file a complaint and includes a listing of victim resources for faculty, staff and students.
Thank you for your leadership and cooperation to create a welcoming environment and respectful climate for everyone in our campus community.
Philip P. DiStefano, Chancellor
