Online sexual harassment prevention training is also available to all members of the CUNY community – non-supervisory employees, faculty and supervisory employees, students, and guests.
The OHRM Professional Development and Learning Management Office also serves as CUNY's "agency liaison" for the New York City Citywide Training Center (CTC). The CTC offers programs and courses to New York City employees and CUNY employees may attend many of them.
