Training Opportunities

Continuous learning is a primary focus here at the University.

In addition to outside professional development opportunities, there are many trainings that we offer here on campus. Below is a list of the trainings that are offered or required on an annual basis and open to all employees.

Required Annual Trainings

Conflict of Interest

A conflict of interest occurs when an employee’s private interests overlap with their public responsibilities. The State Ethics Commission is a five-member, independent, non-partisan state agency responsible for ensuring that all state, county, and municipal employees and volunteers abide by the Conflict of Interest law. At Westfield, all employees are required to be trained in this area to ensure compliance with the law. As a new hire, employees must complete this online training course within 30 days of hire and every two years thereafter.

Sexual Violence Prevention and Responsible Employee Training

Each year, employees will be asked to complete training to better understand the prevalence of sexual violence on a college campus and the role in combating this epidemic. Employees will also learn about mandated reporting policies, as well as important campus resources.
