Fairmont State University, with a 120-acre main campus in Fairmont, West Virginia, is part of the state's growing high technology corridor. With a long history of academic excellence, FSU is a place where teaching and learning matters and students are the first priority. The university is home to more than 4,200 students and 300 staff members.
Before adopting the SafeColleges Training System, FSU hosted in-person training twice a year at two different locations, but achieving 100% attendance and tracking uncompleted and completed training proved difficult and time consuming.
And, switching to a Title IX online training provider only proved to be equally time consuming and offered limited training options. Administrators knew they needed to find a training solution that would be more efficient, cost-effective, and convenient for staff and students.
Now in its second year using the SafeColleges Training System, FSU administers its mandatory Title IX training to a large group of employees and students quickly and easily. Supervisors can also assign job-specific training to each department, as needed, throughout the academic year.
Staff and students can complete assigned courses online, 24/7, from any web-enabled device, making it easy for training to fit into their busy schedules. And, FSU can easily pull compliance reports to see who has taken mandatory courses and send reminders to those still needing to complete the training.
In fact, using the training system, FSU has already reached 75% compliance! Now FSU better manages compliance and saves valuable time.
We applaud Cynthia and the staff and students at FSU for their success with SafeColleges Training, and for their commitment to creating a safer learning environment and campus community.
