Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Prevention

Tulane is committed to maintaining a workplace free of sexual harassment and discrimination. One of the ways we do this is through providing annual mandatory online training courses. These courses are designed to educate all of us on how to better recognize, respond, report and to ultimately prevent discrimination and sexual harassment at Tulane.

There are two courses. One is designed for non-supervisory employees and the other for employees who supervise others. Both courses are also available in Spanish.

Preventing Harassment and Discrimination: Employees

This 40-minute course for employees explains the expected behaviors for building a workplace free of discrimination and harassment. The course is divided into brief, schedule-friendly episodes that cover current topics including sexual harassment, discrimination, bystander intervention, diversity and inclusion.
