Mandated Reporting Training for Higher Education Institutions

Mandated Reporting Training for Higher Education Institutions is now available as an eTraining module. In about 30 minutes, you can complete best-in-class mandated reporter training. This eTraining module explains the reporting responsibilities for incidents involving members of your community.

What can participants expect to learn?

  • Participants will learn about their mandated reporting responsibilities. This course will examine the applicable federal laws and common reporting scenarios. Namely, the course will cover responsibilities related to Title IX, the Clery Act, and Title VII. Each federal law applies to different behaviors. Participants will learn about each law and how to identify reportable behaviors and respond accordingly.
  • Additionally, participants will learn about strategies and techniques to navigate conversations with others about their responsibility to report a disclosure. Depending on the situation, communicating a duty to report a disclosure can be challenging to navigate. This eTraining course walks participants through the conversation, providing suggestions and strategies to help participants determine their preferred approach to these conversations. In addition to a sample script, the course breaks down the components of the duty to report into comprehensible elements for participants.
  • This eTraining course also covers report writing expectations for mandated reporters, as well as expectations and involvement after they complete a report.

After this training, you will be able to:

  • Comply with federal and state laws and regulations and institutional policy.
  • Identify and define the behaviors that you may be required to report.
  • Describe actions a mandated reporter should take when responding to a disclosure.
  • Outline the next steps to take.
  • Direct impacted individuals to available institutional and local resources.
  • Print or save a certificate of completion.
