Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training

The required Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training teaches students information and skills to safely intervene in situations that may lead to sexual misconduct, and it discusses students’ rights and responsibilities related to sexual misconduct. Sexual Misconduct includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, relationship violence and staking. It is important that students take this training to help contribute to a respectful and healthy campus community.

About the Training

Johns Hopkins University requires sexual misconduct prevention training because we care about student well-being and are committed to maintaining a healthy campus community. The training is confidential, research-backed, and tailored to the unique experiences of Hopkins undergraduate and graduate students.

Because the training covers some difficult topics, we ask that you take care of yourself. Please do whatever you need to feel more comfortable, which might include taking breaks or not answering some survey questions.

You may feel more comfortable completing the training alone or with a trusted person nearby. It may also be empowering or validating to see scenarios that reflect an experience of yours or a loved one.

We understand that participating in this training may be difficult for individuals who have experienced sexual or relationship violence. Please email studentaffairs@jhu.edu if you’re concerned about taking this training because of its content.
