New Employees

OCRSM works with University Human Resources (UHR) to obtain new employee information on a monthly basis and assigns the respective trainings accordingly. All new employees are assigned the Responding Effectively to Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct training, as well as any existing supplemental training. The supplemental training currently available is Accessibility & Disability Policy & Procedures (re: ADA compliance). 

All new employees and non-computer based employees who are able to complete the training online, email titleixtraining@umd.edu to enroll in the course. 

Responding Effectively to Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Enrollment Instructions:
 

Email titleixtraining@umd.edu and include the following information: 

  • Full Name
  • UID
  • University Email Address
  • Title
  • Division
  • Department/Unit/Office 
  • Indicate whether classified as a Supervisor or Non-Supervisor 

*Please note: Supervisors receive supplemental training on ADA Compliance. 

All non-computer based employees, including contingent employees, who are unable to complete the training online, must be provided the in-person version of the training, as follows: 

  • Facilitator - The department must designate a facilitator for their staff training. The departmental facilitator will meet with OCRSM to review the training and OCRSM will provide the facilitator with the PowerPoint presentation in both English and Spanish, along with support materials.
  • Schedule/Frequency – Due to the nature and variety of work shifts and the particular scheduling challenges faced by certain departments, supervisors will need to coordinate with their departmental facilitator to ensure that new employees receive the training in a timely manner. Training should be provided/repeated during staff orientations at the beginning of each semester; during other scheduled meeting or training sessions held during the year; and/or to individual employees, scheduled around their work shifts.
  • Translation - The department must coordinate translation of the training for speakers of languages other than English or Spanish. OCRSM will provide training materials in additional languages as they become available.
Deadlines

Employees will receive an assignment email communicating a 30-day deadline to complete the training. Subsequent reminders will be sent during the 30-day period. Employees who do not complete the training by the deadline will continue to receive periodic reminders throughout the year, until they have completed the training.

Compliance 

OCRSM will produce reports illustrating who has and has not completed the compliance training. These reports will be made available through the President’s Office to all the Divisions and Colleges for the respective unit heads to monitor their faculty and staff completion rates upon request.
