Mandatory Faculty and Staff Training

The annual training courses for BGSU faculty and staff are now available. In an effort to streamline all required annual trainings for faculty and staff, all courses are required to be completed by Nov. 19, 2021. Descriptions of each course and additional FAQs are available below.

Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Trainings

Two (2) of the three (3) courses below are required by the Office of Human Resources and are not able to be replaced or substituted by any other training offerings on campus.

This annually required training will include the following:

Faculty & Staff (All Employees-Excluding Supervisors)

Mosaic: Prevent Discrimination and Harassment Together - Will provide an overview of the law on harassment, preventing retaliation for managers and preventing unlawful discrimination. This will help you recognize and prevent unlawful harassment and retaliation as they occur in educational settings. You will have multiple opportunities to check your mastery of key concepts.

Faculty, Staff & Supervisors (All Employees)

Mosaic: Prevent Sexual Violence Together - Explores the Campus SaVE Act, which is a federal law affecting students and professionals working for a college or university. You will learn how to recognize and prevent incidents of sexual violence and receive a compliance resource guide. All faculty and staff, whether in a supervisory role or not, are required to complete this version of the training.

Supervisors Only

Mosaic: Prevent Discrimination and Harassment Together - If you are a supervisor, please take this course instead of the faculty and staff version.


Ohio Ethics Law Training

Under a directive from Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, all public employees (including faculty) are required to complete an annual Ohio Ethics Law training. The Ohio Ethics Commission has prepared an e-course for 2021 to assist public employees across the state in gaining a practical understanding the prohibitions related to conflicts of interest, nepotism, acceptance of gifts, and selling goods or services to one’s own public employer.


Anti-Hazing: University Policy, State Law and Reporting Requirements Training

This training provides a brief overview of the University’s Anti-Hazing Policy and state anti-hazing law. It outlines the requirements and mechanisms to report hazing to appropriate University officials and law enforcement.

Deadline for Completion

All BGSU employees are expected to complete the required courses by Nov. 19, 2021. The University will monitor the Bridge system to ensure that all faculty administrators and all employees at and above the associate vice president level have fulfilled this requirement. Verification of completion will be documented in the Bridge system. You will not need to submit a certificate of completion but will have the opportunity to print one off if you wish.

Accessing the Training Sessions

Access the training sessions online, preferably in the Google Chrome browser. Your login information is your single sign-on information with your BGSU email password.

Upon completion of the courses, you may access your certificate within your learning profile on Bridge and print the certificate. You do not need to send the certificate of completion back to the Office of Human Resources as it will be digitally visible on the administrator’s end.
