Online training is also available via Blackboard. To access the new-hire and refresher training, log in at https://mssu.blackboard.com, select “Organizations” in the left navigation bar. Then, select “HR Training IX Training” from the available listing.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that protects individuals from sexual discrimination in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. To ensure MSSU is operating in a nondiscriminatory manner and all University personnel are aware of and comply with Southern prevention resources, policies and procedures, training is required of all MSSU faculty and staff each academic year.
