Preventing Discrimination and Harassment Training (All Employees)

As members of the University of Arizona community, we share in the responsibility for creating and supporting an environment free of harassment and discrimination. In support of our commitment to this goal, the University requires all employees to take one of the two trainings offered through the Office of Institutional Equity:

  • Preventing Harassment & Discrimination Training – Supervisor
  • Preventing Harassment & Discrimination Training – Non-Supervisor

Please sign up for the training that pertains to your current employment status by completing the online training request form at Note that we are unable to assign training prior to your official start date.

It takes two to three business days for training to be assigned once data has been transferred to the online learning platform. You will receive an email from EverFi with instructions for accessing the training. Use your NetID for login and training access. All training emails go to your official University of Arizona email address.
