"Flashpoint: Recognizing and Caring for Individuals in Distress"
This is a very entertaining and educational look at diversity on the college campus and is performed by the BGSU Humanities Interactive Theatre Ensemble. The live performance takes place during the GSO Opening Session held on Monday of the GSO August Program. Students will then be divided in to facilitated discussion groups to talk about what they observed from the performance and various ways to best handle the various scenarios.
Preventing Workplace Harassment (PWH)
Preventing Employment Discrimination (PED)
These are on-line training modules that you can complete even before you arrive on campus. Please try to complete these before you arrive for orientation week in August so you can turn in your confirmation forms at GSO Check-in. If you cannot complete them before you arrive or experience any problems with the links, please contact us at email@example.com.
These are Internet-based programs so they are available to you at any time. You may access them from your home, office, a computer lab, or any location where you have an Internet connection. After you complete the training modules, you will be asked to complete a Mastery Test. To document completion of your training you must pass the Mastery Test with a minimum score of 80% and provide your first and last names, your BGSU student ID Number, and select your academic department from the Department/Work Unit menu. Students serving as Teaching Assistants should select the Faculty category. All others, or if you are not sure of your assistantship assignment, should select Student.
