There is new federal guidance from the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights, so we are updating our training.

This year's online training will be accessible to everyone directly through UA Blackboard.

If departments would like to request training presented by the Title IX coordinator, please contact Margo Griffith at uaf-TIX@alaska.edu. Training will be offered throughout August and September by request.
