Haven for Employees, an on-line training module, is available on-demand for all faculty and staff at https://eoo.uga.edu/everfi/faculty-staffHaven for Employees provides information on understanding and preventing sexual misconduct, as well as how to appropriately respond to sexual misconduct and be aware of available support resources.  Haven for Employees outlines the mandatory reporting obligations of a “responsible employee,” which is defined to include, without limitation, all faculty, instructors, administrators, and managers. It also discusses the reporting obligations of Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) under the Clery Act.  This training is optional, but strongly encouraged, for all UGA employees.  The current offering of Haven for Employees requires that employees complete the first part of the on-line module by December 2, 2016.
