Sexual Misconduct Prevention Online Training
Summer 2020 Update: Please note that newly admitted students will receive an invitation to participate in the Everfi Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Education training prior to the start of the fall 2020 semester. An email invitation containing instructions for completing the training will come directly from Everfi, our university partner for online education.
The University of Delaware has collaborated with EverFi, whose mission is to help address sexual misconduct prevention in higher education institutions across the country. EverFi has an educational module, “Sexual Assault Prevention for…”, geared toward three groups: Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students, and Faculty & Staff. All employees and students are required to complete this special online training course as part of the University’s sexual misconduct policy. This training was previously referred to as “Haven” or “Haven Plus” and is now referred to as kNOw MORE online training.
Topics such as sex discrimination, sexual harassment, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are covered in the course, along with details on specific UD policies and resources.
New students and newly hired employees are required to take this training within 30 days. Retraining for employees is required in the fall of every odd year to meet with state and federal guidelines. Additionally, the Office of Equity & Inclusion offers training classes upon request and when important policy changes take effect.
Please follow the links to the left for information on your mandatory online training, including troubleshooting help and frequently asked questions.
Once you have completed your kNOw MORE online training, you are encouraged to take the kNOw MORE pledge to further demonstrate your commitment to sexual misconduct awareness!
Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in the University’s programs and activities and applies in sexual misconduct cases that include sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking by anyone on University property.
