Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Requirements

Launching March 21, 2024: The Non-supervisory Employee (including contingent employees), Academic Staff, and Postdoc Sexual Harassment Prevention training. The State-mandated (SB1343) and University required online training will be available on your STARS All Learning Page once assigned later this month. Due date for regular employee and postdocs retraining is September 30, 2024. Contingent employees and new employees will have the required 30-day due date.  

California State Law AB1825 became effective December 31, 2005. The legislation mandates state-wide sexual harassment training for any employee who performs supervisory functions within a company of 50 employees or more. California harassment training requirements have set the standard for the rest of the country.

California Senate Bill 1343 became effective January 1, 2020. This legislation mandates training in sexual and gender-based harassment and abusive conduct for ALL non-supervisory employees, academic staff, postdocs, and contingent employees (including casual, Stanford temporary employees, and student-staff) every two years. If you are a supervisor or faculty member, please do not complete this course. This is only for non-supervisory employees.

Faculty (including emeritus faculty on recall status) and supervisors retrain every odd year.

Non-supervisory employees (including casuals, Stanford temporary, and student employees)*, academic staff, and postdocs retrain every even year. 

Please note that Stanford’s Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation (DAPER) facilitates a separate NCAA state mandated training for DAPER supervisors, staff, and coaches. The NCAA education program does not exempt supervisors, staff, and coaches from the California mandated Sexual Harassment Prevention and Discrimination Education courses that are administered by the SHARE-Title IX Education Office. The Faculty/Supervisor SHP Education & Prevention (AB1825) course is administered every odd calendar year. The Non-supervisory Employee SHP Education & Prevention (SB1343) course is administered every even calendar year. For information about the NCAA harassment prevention mandate, please contact DAPER at

Stanford requires all faculty and staff to complete programs that encourage members of the University community to explore ways in which we can nurture respectful workplaces, classrooms, campus living spaces and programs sponsored by the University.

Topics include illegal forms of gender-based discrimination, sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence in our community, reporting obligations, campus resources, how to assist survivors, and how to be a positive “UPstander”.
