Message from the President
Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,
As members of the Western Kentucky University (WKU) community, we all share the responsibility of building and maintaining sound working relationships. Our success depends on our ability to excel in an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect.
Since part of WKU's commitment is to maintain a positive and productive environment for all University faculty, staff, and students, we are introducing a new online sexual harassment training program in accordance with the University's current policy. Although the training focuses primarily on ways to identify and prevent sexual harassment, it also addresses key ideas that can be easily applied to racial and other types of harassment. This online training enables the campus community to train themselves in a practical and convenient way, and uses an active learning process that does not disrupt work or school responsibilities or require anyone to schedule specific off-site training classes.
As a University community, our goal must be to achieve and maintain an environment that recognizes the worth and potential of every individual and communicate respect among all members. I am fully committed to this goal and I trust that you share my resolve to ensure a campus atmosphere that advances both the University's mission and its reputation for excellence.
Dr. Gary A. Ransdell
At the end of the Preventing Sexual Harassment training program, there is a 15-question mastery test.
This program is for instructional purposes only, and is not to be regarded as legal advice. Employers or individuals with specific legal questions should seek the advice of counsel.
