South Dakota State University has a well-established commitment to maintaining a campus environment free from discrimination and harassment, which is essential to the health of our campus. Training about these important issues is also a legal requirement as articulated in federal regulations, state law and University policy.

A primary component of the University’s ongoing commitment is mandatory Title IX compliance training. All faculty, staff and students receive an e-mail notice to complete training each year. The training includes information about responding to and reporting concerns, bystander intervention strategies and ways to maintain the respectful environment that all members of our University community expect. 

The Office of Title IX/Equal Opportunity also offers in person training sessions for employees each month. For more information, please contact us at 605-688-4128 or
