Frequently Asked Questions

Why am I expected to take these course(s)?

The University System of New Hampshire is providing Faculty and Staff this interactive training program from Workplace Answers* because education is the most effective way to provide a harassment-free working and learning environment. USNH does not tolerate discrimination or discriminatory harassment including sexual harassment.

I deleted my e-mail and/or can't find the registration e-mail with the link. How do I access my course?

Contact your campus Human Resources (HR) training administrators:

Heather McGreer or 358-2471 or
Kim Harkness or 358-2496

After I have completed the course(s) will I be able to review or print the information?

Yes, this is an on-going resource for you. You may click the link that was sent to you with your registration email and regain access to your course(s). Use the left and right arrows to navigate the content. You will be able to review your responses and print the information.

Am I being graded or scored on the questions asked in the course(s)?

No, the objective of this training is to increase your awareness of the legal and policy issues related to this topic, so your responses are not being graded or scored.

Who will know if I have completed the course(s) or not?

Human Resources will know who has completed the training and you will continue to receive email reminders from Workplace Answers until you have completed your course(s).

Will anyone be able to see my responses?


What are the courses being offered and who takes which course?

Faculty will take the Unlawful Harassment Prevention-Faculty version; Staff will take the Unlawful Harassment Prevention-Staff version. In addition, all Faculty and Staff in supervisory roles will take the Unlawful Harassment Supervisor Supplement.

Why do I have to take two courses and my colleague only has to take one?

All Faculty and Staff take a foundation course, either Unlawful Harassment Prevention-Staff or Unlawful Harassment Prevention-Faculty. Supervisors take an additional course called Unlawful Harassment Supervisor Supplement that speaks to the special obligations supervisors have for reporting issues and creating safe working environments.

May I make suggestions for content changes?

No, this is a commercial product and further modifications are not available.
