We provide education and training opportunities to the NIU campus, surrounding communities and conferences. Our goal is to ensure quality training on subjects related to legal mandates and current concerns that affect the university and other entities.
The trainings address a range of topics, including Title IX/sexual misconduct, nondiscrimination, best practices for diversity in the hiring process, ADA, employment discrimination, violence prevention and much more. Employees and students are required to take certain training sessions, while others are optional. Members of the NIU community and residents of the DeKalb area can benefit from our training and education programs.
In addition, our committees and task forces are focused on developing programs to address and prevent domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking on campus. Much of the prevention work is conducted through our active bystander program.
