The Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) requires all faculty and staff to complete training that addresses sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. The training, as stated in the NSHE Board Handbook, must be completed within 6 months after an employee is initially appointed to an affiliated institution. In addition, and at least once every two years after the appointment, an employee shall receive training concerning the prevention of sexual harassment.

The online training, for both supervisors and non-supervisors, is compliant with complex federal laws, including Campus SaVE Act, VAWA, Clery Act, and Title IX.
