The University of Delaware community will once again be engaging in online sexual misconduct policy and response training, provided by UD partner Everfi, and overseen by the Office of Equity & Inclusion. This introductory and ongoing training is part of the university’s commitment to provide all faculty, staff, and students with timely and relevant information and resources related to the university’s sexual misconduct policy, and sexual harassment and discrimination more broadly. All faculty, staff, and students receive a separate invitation directly from Everfi with instructions for access and completion.
All training invitations will be sent via email and will come directly from Everfi (“University of Delaware <email@example.com”), who is your vendor for this training and this email can be trusted.
You may choose to login directly to your training dashboard at www.udel.edu/006145.
All first-year undergraduate and graduate students complete the course entitled “Sexual Assault Prevention”. All new university employees complete the course entitled “Bridges: Building a Supportive Community”. Current university employees will complete the course “Bridges: Taking Action” during the Fall 2019 term as part of a biannual training requirement instituted with the passage of Delaware H.B. 360.
Questions about this online education opportunity can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
OEI’s ongoing book club returns this fall with a powerful and timely collection of essays addressing a wide array of multicultural feminist topics! We will be reading Roxane Gay’s New York Times Bestseller “Bad Feminist” and engaging in a timely discussion about a variety of issues along the way. In the era of #metoo, voices are no longer silent, stories are being told, and challenging conversations are no longer being avoided. This deeply personal, profoundly influential, and easily accessible collection of essays touches on everything from pop culture to politics. Along the way, Gay breaks down barriers and allows us to engage in the dialogue we so clearly need to be having today!

We look forward to having you join us for what will prove to be an engaging and worthwhile conversation about race, gender, and sexuality in America!
Please join us as we read Michael Eric Dyson’s What Truth Sounds Like and come together as a UD community to engage in meaningful dialogue around issues of race in America. It is of the utmost importance, now more than ever, that we continue to look for opportunities to engage in dialogue as we look to shape the world around us with inclusive excellence in mind. UD’s commitment to inclusive excellence calls on each of us to thoughtfully consider the role we play in our community as educators and leaders. Our time together will provide an opportunity to engage with folks from all corners of the university and consider where we’ve been and where we are going.
Registration is open to anyone at the University of Delaware, and a limited number of books are available for those in need.
