Student Training

As part of our commitment to creating an inclusive campus and workplace, we have established an instructive diversity course to help students build skills to help them be succeed in their personal, academic, and professional lives.

Mandatory Harassment and Discrimination Prevention Training 

The Office of Equal Opportunity Programs offers a diversity course that is required at the University of South Carolina for all incoming students (first time freshmen and transfers). It covers principles and best practices related to diversity and inclusion.

Training Details 

  • Within their first semester, students will receive notice of the course in their campus email.
  • The course is entitled, “Brave and Bold Dialogues”.
  • Estimates vary; however, it may take you one to two hours to complete the mandatory training module. The module does not have to be completed in one session. You can save your work throughout the course and return to finish at another time.
