This training provides a foundational understanding and awareness of the Title IX office and the policies, processes, and objectives that guide our work. It provides an understanding of power-based violence, and why this term is used. This training also provides resources and ways to support survivors of harm. Participants leave with a better understanding of their mandatory reporting responsibilities, and how to support those who might be experiencing harm.
This training provides a foundational understanding and awareness of the Title IX office and the policies, processes, and objectives that guide our work. It provides an understanding of power-based violence, and why this term is used. Students will walk away with an understanding of the mandatory reporting process, but also with options to report confidentially to those identified resources at LSU. Resources and supportive options are also identified in this training.
This training promotes the idea that humans are relational and are always in relationship with others, and that we can all strive to be healthier in those relationships. It identifies characteristics of healthy and unhealthy relationships, teaches how to recognize the warning signs of unhealthy relationships, and provides support and resources. This training also discusses how to set personal boundaries, how to engage in healthy communication, have respect for others, and communication around consent.
This training is designed to be given as a follow up to the Healthy Relationship Training but can be a stand-alone training as well. This training discusses consent and teaches participants how to have conversations to establish a healthy culture of consent. It also discusses boundaries and how to establish healthy ones.
Bringing in the Bystander is LSU’s first nationally recognized evidence-based bystander intervention program. It focuses on training students, faculty, and staff on the importance of being an active pro-social bystander who intervenes to positively impact a potentially harmful situation. It also teaches that anyone can intervene using strategies that are most comfortable for the person intervening.
The LSU GRACE training (Gaining Resilience and Cultivating Empowerment) is a workshop designed to provide faculty and staff the tools to confidently support students and colleagues who may have been impacted by sexual violence. Participants will leave with a greater understanding and knowledge of trauma-informed care, empathy, and available resources for survivors.

ADA Training and Education
Planned accessibility is forethought in programs, services, events and activities recognizing a broad range of needs may exist for attendees. Accessibility is the baseline of equitable service. The learning opportunities below will provide you and your team with some information needed to provide access to all within the LSU community.
Faculty are responsible for making their instructional materials accessible. Anything posted on a website or on Moodle must be accessible. To assist faculty with this task, the LSU Online and Continuing Education team is excited to offer:
The Division of Strategic Communications offers accessibility trainings for website content managers. The training is customized for individuals managing content within the university website content management system (WCMS), OMNI CMS. However, the information presented will be helpful to users managing website content through other platforms. The training includes the following:
- What is online accessibility and why it's important
- Governing legislation
- Benchmarks for accessibility
- Equally Effective Alternate Access
- Creating and maintaining accessible content in OU Campus
- Publishing checks
- Accessibility resources for pdfs, pptx, doc, etc.
- Video, social and email accessibility
We provide customized education and learning services to your department, business or classroom. Additionally, one-on-one and group consultations are available to leaders seeking to engage their team around one or more of our divisional focal areas. These consultations are intended to assist with specific initiatives, including developing engaged team, and learning environments. The purpose of a consultation is to have a facilitated dialogue to assist you in discovering the underlying issues/challenges, find answers, put action plans into place, define success metrics, and maintain positive change rather than diagnose problems and prescribe remedies.
Please fill out the form below, and we will contact you to develop content tailored to your needs. Please submit your customized Engagement and Learning requests at least four weeks before the desired session date.
