Mandatory Employee Compliance Training

Compliance training is administered by the Division of Legal Affairs and Compliance. The training is  accessed through our learning management system (LMS), My Learning Connection.

All employees are required to complete the Mandatory Employee Compliance Training curriculum within 30 calendar days of their hire date, and every three years thereafter. This requirement is addressed under University Policies section 2.2.1 Discrimination and Harassment Training Policy. Completion of the training is important because it supports compliance efforts and the University's commitment to provide all members of our community a place of study and work free from discrimination and harassment.

All required employees are automatically enrolled in the Mandatory Employee Compliance Training, and are notified by email with instructions for accessing the training through My Learning Connection.
