  • Why was I sent this course?
    Legislative action and federal mandates require all institutions of higher education to provide services, training, and response to sexual violence on campus. Federal mandates such as Title IX, Campus Save Act and the Jeanne Clery Act serve as mandated legislation improving safety on college campuses across the country. Under the requirements of the legislation, colleges must educate all students, faculty and staff annually on the prevention of rape, acquaintance rape, domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and stalking.

    Green River along with all of the other campuses within the Washington community and technical college system, are utilizing Campus Clarity as one tool to meet federal mandates as well as acknowledge the ethical responsibility to create a safe and equitable learning environment for all students.

    The following are links providing additional information regarding the federal mandates.

  • I’ve done training like this before, do I really have to do it again?
    For many of our students that have professional work experience, are former services members, or went to a high school that taught about interpersonal violence, it may seem like this course will be a repeat of information you already know. However this training will discuss unique situations for people on a college campus, and has content that is specific to Green River College students. So even if you have been through a course like this before, it’s still important to know the rules and resources that apply at GRC.
