Mandatory Employee Training 2022-'23

CCSU is committed to providing a safe and nondiscriminatory employment and educational environment that complies with policies relating to affirmative action, discrimination, and harassment.

As such, every employee must complete seven training sessions in accordance with the University mission and its Affirmative Action Policy. (See list below.) Some of these training sessions are required only once during your tenure as a state employee.
