Q: Why is the university highly recommending participation in this program for all faculty and staff?
A: The university recognizes that when members of our community come forward about wrongdoing, it helps to shed light on the harm we otherwise would not know about. By participating in a single education program, all faculty and staff will receive the same basic information about maintaining a respectful, inclusive and welcoming working and learning environment.
Q: Who is recommended to complete the training?
A: It is highly recommended that all University of Michigan faculty and staff members, regardless of campus or location, complete the retaliation prevention online training. This includes temporary staff, student employees, bargained-for staff and graduate student employees.
