UVU required trainings due Feb. 28

Make sure to login to myUVU and complete all the required trainings before the end of next month. As a reminder, here is part of President Tuminez's email from December 16.

Every successful organization, higher education not least of all, must take people development seriously.

This is why I’m requesting that all employees (myself included) complete a suite of five critical online training modules in cybersecurity, student data privacy (FERPA), ethics & conflicts of interest, workplace conduct (bullying), and Title IX/sexual harassment. These are due on February 28, 2023.

As a reminder, employees who fail to complete all five courses by the February 28, 2023 deadline will:

  • be redirected to UVULearn when signing into UVU systems beginning on March 1, 2023, until they complete the required training
  • not be eligible for Spot Awards, and
  • be given a “Does Not Meet Expectations” in the “Exceptional Accountability” section on their next performance review for staff, and a “Does Not Meet Expectations” in the compliance section of the annual review, per Policies 633 and 635 for faculty.

Courses have been assigned to you. You may also access the courses and verify completion directly on your UVULearn page.

The approximate total time required to complete these five trainings is two hours (the cybersecurity training takes the longest). These trainings represent a major collective investment of time, which is why they’ve been condensed, and are now 20% shorter on average than previous versions.
