Non-Discrimination Online Training

Non-Discrimination Online Training FAQs

The contents of this page will be available for download once finalized.

1) Why am I still receiving reminder emails for this training?

The system automatically records completion of the four sections of the training program. If you are receiving reminder emails, you have a section remaining that has not recorded completion, such as a policy acknowledgement (a check-box in the final component of the training program). If you log into the system, it should take you to what is remaining in your training transcript.

When you complete the full program you will receive a final certificate that indicates completion of one of the following: 

  • "VCU Preventing and Responding to Discrimination - Manager (Custom)" a training program requiring 54 minutes.
  • "VCU Preventing and Responding to Discrimination - Non-Manager (Custom)," a training program requiring 45 minutes.

2) Which employees are required to complete the training?

All VCU employees (anyone who is on payroll) are required to complete the training once. This includes faculty, staff, adjuncts, full-time, part-time, and student employees.

3) What training am I required to complete and how do I access it?

Managers (those who have responsibility for one or more employees in the workplace) are required to complete “Discrimination: Avoiding Discriminatory Practices.” All other employees are required to complete “Discrimination Awareness in the Workplace.”

Your personal training transcript can be accessed here. 

Enter your University credentials on the sign on page. The system will then walk you through the program page by page. Once you complete the training in the system, your completion will automatically be logged and you will be able to download a certificate of completion for your records.

4) Why am I required to take the training?

It is the responsibility of every member of the VCU community to support diversity, foster a climate of inclusion, and be familiar with the policy on Preventing and Responding to Discrimination. In order to equip employees with the knowledge needed to achieve this, VCU is using this online discrimination training.
