Beyond Compliance provides annual training for Kent State faculty and staff to make sure they are fully up-to-date and aware of relevant laws and university policies related to discrimination, harassment and violence prevention. The broader theme centers on building a culture of care. Kent State continues to hold the highest standards for ensuring our workforce remains one of the best. We do this by respecting the differences in people, ideas and opinions, and by prohibiting discrimination.
All current Kent State University staff must attend a minimum of two hours of Beyond Compliance Training for each fiscal year. Enclosed are a few Beyond Compliance options. Please go to the Beyond Compliance website for a more comprehensive list. Note that any course in the catalog that has "BC" after its title is eligible for Beyond Compliance credit. If you plan to attend a course in your department that you believe meets the Beyond Compliance definition, please notify the director of Training and Development in advance for approval prior to completing the course.
