December "Civility and Violence: Preventing Workplace Violence"
Sessions

Register by email to hr.learning@baruch.cuny.edu (Note: New registration e-mail address).

Baruch College is committed to preventing workplace violence and ensuring a safe and secure academic and work environment for all members of the College community and its constituents.  As a public employer, CUNY is required by law to develop and implement programs to prevent workplace violence.  One way to reduce the potential for workplace violence is to intervene before a situation escalates into a violent incident. All faculty and staff are required to attend this mandatory training on how to recognize signs of a potentially violent situation.

“Civility and Violence” is the new name for the ongoing mandatory training program on preventing workplace violence. If you attended a “Preventing Workplace Violence” session in 2007 or 2008, you need not attend this class again. Over 700 faculty and staff have attended a session. Please note that adjunct faculty members and college assistants are required to attend.  Adjunct faculty members who do NOT have professional hours will receive the non-teaching adjunct rate for their attendance.

The schedule for upcoming sessions is as follows:
 
Tuesday, Dec. 9                  12:45 pm to 2:15 pm    55 Lexington Ave, Room 14-269
Friday, Dec. 12                     9:30 am to 11:30 am   55 Lexington Ave, Room 14-285

To register for one of the training sessions, please send an e-mail to hr.learning@baruch.cuny.edu, stating the session you would like to attend.  You will receive a reply with a confirmation.

You can review CUNY's Policy on Workplace Violence at this link:  http://portal.cuny.edu/cms/id/cuny/documents/level_3_page/007583.htm.

If you have any questions regarding the policy, please contact our Training and Development Specialist, Ms. Leah Schanke, at (646) 660-6618.
