Gender-Based Violence (GBVT)

In compliance with New York State law and CUNY Policy, all Human Resources Professionals and campus supervisors and managers with at least one direct report are required to complete the new Gender Based Violence Training (GBVT), which is committed to ensuring a survivor-centered, trauma-informed, and culturally responsive response for all employees experiencing domestic or gender-based violence, at least once every academic year.

This training is available to employees via CUNY Blackboard. Once in Blackboard, the link to complete the training can be found in the My Organization section. Employees may access Blackboard at any point during the duration of the academic year to begin the course. To reduce any technical difficulties, employees should plan on completing the training in one sitting – this means not pausing and exiting the course. Doing so may result in your completion not being recorded in Blackboard. All required employees will have until May 31, 2024 to complete the training.
