Faculty and Staff Training
Baylor University continues to develop a campus culture of care. Our role as a prominent Christian University demands that we create a safe and secure environment within which all members of our community - faculty, staff, and students - can learn, thrive, and become the people God has created them to be. Every faculty and staff member plays an integral part in fostering a campus culture characterized by dignity, integrity, safety, and respect.
One step towards creating and maintaining a safe environment is continuous communication and education of our community. All faculty and staff are required annually to complete the Get Inclusive: Title IX course.
Faculty and staff will be able to access the course by logging into Ignite and going to the Learning Tab.
Faculty and staff taking the course do not have to complete the course in one sitting; participants can exit the course, and their progress will be saved.
The course is best supported by the latest version of Chrome (preferred), Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer 11+. If you have any accessibility issues, please select "accessibility mode" once you are in the course. If you need technical assistance with the course, please contact the Equity Office at Title_IX@baylor.edu.
Specific Baylor policies and resources may be found at titleix.web.baylor.edu. It is important for faculty and staff to understand their roles in working with those who have been affected by these behaviors. Please see the Responsible Employee tab for more information.
If you have questions regarding reporting, the policy, or your role as a responsible employee, please contact the Equity, Civil Rights, and Title IX Office at (254) 710-8454 or Title_IX@baylor.edu. If you encounter a student or colleague who may have been affected by sex or gender-based harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, stalking, and/or intimate partner violence, please contact the Equity, Civil Rights, and Title IX Office.
The course addresses sensitive issues through scenarios and information that may be difficult to watch. These instances are not included for shock value; rather, it is important for faculty and staff to be equipped to respond to situations they may encounter. This training aims to prepare us for these disturbing situations so that we will respond with care and knowledge should they occur in reality. Some participants may find that the training recalls a past traumatic experience. If this occurs, we encourage you to contact our office or the Employee Assistance Program to receive support (See the link on the right side of the page).
The course content includes references to non-Christian faiths. These references provide guidance on interactions with students, community members, and external colleagues who may be of other faiths. In addition, Baylor University is a faith-based institution and, as such, is lawfully permitted to consider an applicant’s religion as a selection criterion for hiring decisions.
