Workshops & Compliance Trainings

OEI’s mission is to provide leadership and support in creating an equitable and inclusive work and learning environment. OEI provides education and resources in the areas of bias, prejudice, harassment and discrimination to encourage and develop awareness and knowledge of individuals’ differences and similarities. Applying this knowledge and promoting this awareness will help us build a stronger and better UD! Join us for one or more of our sessions by registering through UD’s Learn IT Calendar at http://www.it.udel.edu/learnit

ONLINE TRAINING

Here are several online “briefings” you may watch at your convenience on topics related to policy compliance.


2015-2016 COMPLIANCE TOPICS

ADA & EMPLOYEE ACCOMMODATIONS
This training is designed to provide information about the university's policies, procedures, and resources for supporting those with disabilities in our community. The training will also create familiarity with the American with Disabilities Act as it pertains to the workplace, and provide guidance about the best way to identify reasonable accommodations for those who need them. The workshop covers communicating with people with disabilities, and thoughts on how people with disabilities can be fully welcomed into the workplace.

EQUITY-IN-BRIEF SERIES
These one-hour seminars will be provided to the campus community to respond to current equity issues in the news relevant to higher education, showcase underutilized resources on our campus, provide other need-to-know information, or introduce new topics for training. Each topic will differ, and facilitators will vary depending on topic. Last year’s sessions included parental leave policies and resources and search committee tips and tricks. Specific topics will be updated on the Learn IT Calendar and announced on UDaily.
