Who is required to complete the education module

  • Graduate assistants, fellows, and undergraduate student workers will be assigned the education module. 
  • People classified as “persons of interest” (i.e., those who are engaged in work, unpaid or paid, in various capacities in our University community, such as having a role in research, serving as a consultant, engaging in student advising), are required to complete the module. If you are unsure whether you are in this category, please ask your supervisor or University contact.
