Respectful Workplace Training

The University of Massachusetts is committed to promoting inclusive workplaces, ensuring all employees understand their role in creating a respectful work environment, and providing information on the resources and procedures available to address concerns.

We are offering two Respectful Workplace trainings. One is for employees not in a supervisory or manager role; the other, for Supervisors and Managers.

New employees must attend one of the Respectful Workplace trainings. (Current employees may also attend.)

New employees includes all faculty, staff, post-docs and graduate student employees who receive stipends. Undergraduate and graduate student-hourly employees are not expected to attend.  All employees required to take this training will be granted release time to attend. ​ 

 If all of the trainings are closed, please check this site later for upcoming dates.
