Mandatory Sexual Violence Prevention Training

On July 7, 2015, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law legislation designed to help prevent sexual assault on college campuses.  The law, commonly known as Enough is Enough, joins UAlbany and the SUNY system in recognizing the importance of utilizing you, our student leaders, to impact the number of instances of sexual violence on colleges campuses.  To provide student leaders with the tools necessary to help make a difference, the University and the law require that officers for each institutionally recognized student group receive sexual violence prevention training. 

Over the course of the Fall 2015 semester, three training sessions were held. Spring 2016 sessions are as follows:

  • January 19, 2016, noon, location TBA
  • Other dates TBA

Please RSVP to confirm your spot at this training.

In accordance with this newly passed legislation, the Office of Student Involvement must require the attendance of each organization’s President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer at one of the three training sessions. Please note that attendance will be recorded, and student organizations that do not complete this state-mandated training will become inactive, ultimately affecting the group’s access to University services such as reserving space on campus, posting flyers, and using MyInvolvement. Please attend the earliest session that is most convenient, as space is not guaranteed at later sessions. The initial training on this subject was held on Wednesday, May 6th at which time a minimum of two officers were required to attend. However, due to recent legislation, all four officers must now attend. Officers that attended on May 6, 2015 or during Fall 2015 need not attend again. Please note:

  • Training starts promptly; latecomers will not be allowed.
  • Bring your SUNYCard, as you will be asked to swipe your card to verify your attendance
