As part of our Affirmative Action Program, referenced in President Stuart R. Bell’s Reaffirmation of Equal Opportunity, Nondiscrimination, and Affirmative Action Policy Statement sent out September 8, 2017, the University is required to track the number of individuals with disabilities and/or protected veterans that are employed at UA. The University invites employees who fall into one or both categories to confidentially identify themselves by completing the Voluntary Self-Identification of Individuals with Disabilities and/or Voluntary Self-Identification of Protected Veterans forms that can be found on the Employee tab under Employee Services on myBama. Employees who have previously submitted this information do not have to submit it again, unless your status has changed. Contact the HR Service Center at 348-7732 with questions.
In support of our aim to inform and educate, faculty, staff, and graduate employees are being provided online training that focuses on recognizing sexual misconduct, how to receive a report of sexual misconduct, your role in reporting, and resources on campus. This new online training module, Bridges – Providing a Supportive Community, is specifically directed at educational institutions and will enable UA employees to better assist members of our campus community who are impacted by sexual misconduct.
Faculty, staff, and graduate employees will begin receiving email notifications of their training assignment on Friday, February 23, and we ask that Bridges Training be completed by April 30, 2018.
To assist you with this training assignment we are providing:
- Instructions for accessing the Bridges Training.
- The HRLearningandDevelopment@ua.edu departmental email account should you wish to schedule time to complete the training in the HR Learning and Development Computer Lab.
- A list of questions to help you understand your role in reporting: UAct Reporting Resources and FAQs.
If you have any further questions regarding your role in addressing and preventing sexual misconduct, please contact Beth Howard, UA’s Title IX Coordinator, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at (205) 348-5496, or your Designated Harassment Resource Person listed at http://eop.ua.edu/persons.html.
Thank you for your commitment to making The University of Alabama a safe and supportive community in which to work and learn.
