Here at University of Pennsylvania, we realize that our educational offerings and workshops are fundamental to maintaining an environment free from discriminatory harassment and retaliation. Managers, supervisors, faculty, deans, directors, and department heads are partners with our theme in ensuring that their employees are informed of the University’s policies prohibiting discrimination, harassment and retaliation. The Office of Student Affairs is the resource for providing this information to the student body.

The Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Programs (OAA/EOP) is responsible for providing educational training programs to assist members of the University community in understanding discrimination, harassment and retaliation. In addition we offer information on how to address behaviors that violate University policies, and how to be proactive in creating a respectful and productive work environment.

Below is a list of training sessions offered by our office. Please select the title to download further information on the training (PDFs.)

Each of these trainings can be tailored to meet the needs of your department. To request a training session, please contact OAA/EOP at (215) 898-6993 or by email at Office of Affirmation Action and Equal Opportunity Programs.
