All employees have been registered for the Minnesota State colleges and universities Annual Compliance Training programs for Academic Year 2022-2023. The seven modules required for all employees promote a safe and inclusive work environment, will help employees understand policies and expectations unique to our system of higher education, and are required to be completed annually.

Additional safety or compliance training modules may also be required, depending on your job role. Employees who are required to complete additional safety training due to their job roles were enrolled in those trainings on October 6th and should have received an email notice regarding the registration. Employees may also view all trainings that have been assigned to them in ELM under My Learning.
