Student Training to Prevent, Report, & Respond to Sexual Misconduct

Nova Southeastern University is committed to ensuring that we provide a safe campus environment for all of our students to be able to learn, free from discrimination. In addition to information provided in new student orientation, NSU provides primary prevention education in the form of an interactive online training course: Think About It!: Adult Learner. This training addresses: the campus sexual misconduct policy, definitions of violations and related crimes, NSU’s policies and procedures after an incident occurs, and information on bystander intervention and risk reduction. 

Starting in Winter 2018, all NSU students are being offered this online training as a part of NSU’s primary prevention efforts against sexual violence and sexual misconduct. To access the training, you should check your NSU student account for an email with the subject line, “NSU Online Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training.” You should follow the “Get Started – Click Here” link contained in the email. If you did not receive the email or the email is no longer active, you may log in via campusclarity.com. On the log-in page, simply enter your NSU email address into the first field and click "continue." Follow the directions provided and you will be directed to your "My Courses" page. You may click "Launch" on the course titled, "Think About It: Adult Learner" to begin.   

Below are questions we anticipate you might have as you engage with the online training. Should you find that your concerns aren't addressed by this list, please feel free to email titleIX@nova.edu with your question. Also, be sure to check back here from time to time as this page will be updated regularly with questions we get from other students. 

To promote an environment of safety, civility, and respect, it is critical that all members of the university community are appropriately educated about behaviors which might implicate the university’s sexual misconduct policy; strategies for preventing sexual violence; and how to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct which impacts members of the NSU community. NSU intends to produce graduates across a multitude of professional disciplines who are keenly suited to address inappropriate behaviors and language which perpetuate sex discrimination and sexual violence. Ultimately, you should take this training because it will make you a more competent professional in any complex and diverse work environment and a thoroughly informed member of the NSU community.

Current NSU students can access the training via an email sent to your NSU email account with the subject line , “NSU Online Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training.” You should follow the “Get Started – Click Here” link contained in that email to access the training. If you cannot find the email in your inbox, please check your Junk and Archived folders.

The online training is estimated to take approximately one hour to complete. This estimated time frame presumes that the coursework is the user’s singular focus and doesn't’t account for the myriad of distractions that many of us face on a daily basis. The training will pause if you try to multitask while completing it, which will extend the time it takes for you to complete it.  For some users, the training may take longer to complete than estimated. For others, it will be considerably shorter.

Please be advised, you do not need to complete it all at one time. You may also take as long as you need to complete the training and return to it as often as you require for completion. It is recommended that you return to the training via the emailed link, as opposed to relying on your browser history.

Yes. The training saves your progress so you can take breaks and pick up where you left off. You do not need to complete the training in one sitting.  

Yes. The online training addresses the university’s sexual misconduct policy; strategies for preventing sexual violence; and how to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct which impacts members of the NSU community. The content – like the university sexual misconduct policy – is applicable to all NSU campuses, programs, and educational platforms, irrespective of geographic location, so all NSU students should participate in the training.

Yes. As a student employee, you are uniquely positioned to influence campus climate and culture related to issues implicating the university’s sexual misconduct policy. You also bear a responsibility of reporting to the Title IX Coordinator any conduct or behaviors which may amount to a violation of the university sexual misconduct policy. This training will provide you with a strong foundational understanding of the concerning behaviors which warrant reporting, resources and support services made available to those persons impacted by sexual misconduct, and strategies for effective bystander intervention. If you seek to learn more about the subject-matter included in the training, you are invited to encourage your employer to contact titleIX@nova.edu for the purpose of coordinating supplemental in-person training for you and your fellow student employees.

If you cannot find the invitation email in your inbox, please check your Junk and Archived folders. If you did not receive the email or cannot find the original email, please contact titleIX@nova.edu from your NSU email account and we will resend you the instructions.

There is usually a very simple reason for this. If you come to a point in the training where the "Next" button is completely grayed out and unresponsive to a click of the mouse, take the time to thoroughly review the current screen (or the one immediately preceding). It is likely that you have missed a hyperlink, tab, or video which must be reviewed before advancing. 

If you are certain that the screen has frozen, please consider the following troubleshooting options before contacting the Campus Clarity Online Support Center at 1-844-348-1616 or via Chat:

  • Re-Launch the training in the Google Chrome browser if you have been attempting to use Internet Explorer, Edge, or a different browser. 
  • Make sure that pop-ups are enabled. 
  • Make sure that you are able to view the entire window - there are some sections that require you to click on a highlighted tab or button that is near the edge of the window. You may need to scroll to find these if your window is smaller than the training viewing area

It is unnecessary to print a hard copy of the certificate of completion, unless it has been requested of you by a specific entity (i.e., a supervisor, if you are a student employee). The Campus Clarity website tracks user completion and the NSU Title IX staff will be able to confirm your completion, in real time.  

No. The training program must be accessed on a desktop computer or laptop. The training is not accessible on mobile platforms like smart phones, iPads, etc. 

Yes. There are interactive features and questions throughout the program meant to engage you in critical thought relating to the subject-matter. There is, however, NOT a quiz or test at the end.  

NSU’s Title IX staff will be able to track student completion of the program - but we can't see what answers you provide on the quizzes or questions, so that is completely confidential. Additionally, you will be presented an opportunity at the end of the training to save or print a certificate of completion. 

This training is distinct from any in-person sexual harassment or sexual violence prevention training you may have attended at NSU. In-person trainings are available to address unique needs, as a follow up to this training or to engage in a more in-depth discussion on a particular topic, and can be catered to your student group or organization. Contact titleIX@nova.edu if you would like to schedule one of these for your organization.

This training is, indeed, necessary for all students – independent of their employment status with the university. You will certainly recognize some familiar content in this student training, but you should be aware that there are substantive differences between the content presented in this training and the employee training. Specifically, the employee training focused a great deal on your responsibilities as a university employee. This training, while acknowledging responsibilities possessed by all students, focuses on the rights that you maintain as an enrolled student within our community. You may also notice that the student training is much shorter in length when compared to the time you invested in completing the employee training. 

Ultimately, we want you to complete this training as it will be a benefit to your experience as a student and will support the university’s aim to meet and exceed federal compliance mandates related to student education.

Yes. Reviewing the content after completion is very simple: visit campusclarity.com. On the log-in page, simply enter your NSU email address into the first field and click "continue." Follow the directions provided and you will be directed to your "My Courses" page.

Under “My Course,” find the course under the “Completed Courses” heading and click “Launch.”

NSU certainly appreciates the concern about a new training obligation at the start of a new semester. Nevertheless, it is imperative that every member of the university community receive education to support the prevention of sexual misconduct. Fortunately, the training will not take very much of your time (no more than an hour) and it needn’t be completed all in one sitting. We believe the information is important for all new members of our NSU community, so we hope that you will complete it within the first 30 days that you are a student at NSU.

Again, NSU can appreciate the stressors associated with a rigorous course load and an added training requirement. As you progress in your chosen discipline, though, it is expected that you will come to find value in having encountered this training content early on. If the Title IX staff can be of any support to you as you navigate this training, please do not hesitate to outreach at TitleIX@nova.edu.

The online training program, Think About It!, affords participants an opportunity to provide anonymous feedback about the course and their experience. Below are just a few of the comments shared by students within 48 hours of the program's launch:

  • “This was a very engaging and informative way of presenting this vital information.” – Female graduate student (39 years old).
