Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action Training

Mandatory Non-Discrimination Training

The Office of Equal Opportunity provides non-discrimination training on a biannual basis to all employees and student leaders at the VCU. This training provides background information, recent developments, and conduct expectations for VCU community members regarding protected class-based discrimination and harassment. This training is provided online through Vector Solutions, our compliance vendor, and can be accessed using your university single-sign-on credentials.

We also provide live or in-person training on an as-needed-or-requested basis, which can cover any of the following topics:

  • Non-Discrimination

This is our Compliance 101 training, which would take the place of the online module through Vector Solutions and provide attendees credit for the biannual training requirement.

  • Harassment Prevention and Workplace Conduct Expectations

For units who wish to have more frequent or specialized training, we can provide customized training sessions to help solidify prevention efforts and keep VCU’s conduct expectations top of mind.

  • Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action

We provide training to ensure clarity regarding the interaction and synergy between the concepts of equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. This training is most beneficial for HR professionals, hiring committees, hiring managers, or those otherwise involved in VCU recruitment, hiring, and promotions processes.

  • OFCCP Compliance

VCU is required to comply with affirmative action and equal employment opportunity mandates derived from the university’s status as a federal contractor under Executive Order 11246, Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act. This training is beneficial for those involved in recruitment, hiring, promotions, terminations, succession planning, or disability accommodations.
