Fairmont State University Case Study

Meeting Title IX Training Mandates for Staff & Students

University of North DakotaFairmont State University, with a 120-acre main campus in Fairmont, West Virginia, is part of the state’s growing high technology corridor.

With a long history of academic excellence, FSU is a place where teaching and learning matters and students are the first priority. The university is home to more than 4,200 students and 300 staff members.

Before adopting the SafeColleges Online Training System, FSU hosted in-person training twice a year at two different locations, but achieving 100 percent attendance and tracking uncompleted and completed training proved difficult and time consuming. And, switching to a Title IX online training provider only proved to be equally time consuming and offered limited training options.

Administrators knew they needed to find a training solution that would be more efficient, cost-effective and convenient for staff and students.

Now in its second year using the SafeColleges Training System, FSU administers its mandatory Title IX training to a large group of employees and students quickly and easily. Supervisors can also assign job-specific training to each department as needed throughout the academic year.

“Our staff and students love that SafeColleges Training courses are concise and to-the-point. Our administrators agree, SafeColleges Training’s courses are spot-on and we’re thrilled with the cost. The system is user-friendly and intuitive, and the compliance reports are just what we need. Plus, the customer service is exceptional, making set up and implementation a breeze!” – Cynthia Curry, Assistant Vice President of Human Resources & Campus/Community Relations

Staff and students can complete assigned courses online, 24/7, from any web-enabled device, making it easy for training to fit into their busy schedules. And, FSU can easily pull compliance reports to see who has taken mandatory courses and remind those still needing to complete the training.

In fact, using the training system, FSU has already reached 75 percent compliance!

Now FSU better manages compliance and saves valuable time. We applaud Cynthia and the staff and students at FSU for their success with SafeColleges Training and for their commitment to creating a safer learning environment and campus community.
