Kognito Launches New Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training for Faculty & Staff A Holistic Approach to Safer, More Inclusive Campus Communities

September 22, 2022

Burlington, MA — September 22, 2022 Ascend Learning brand Kognito, an experiential learning company, is excited to announce the release of its simulation-based training, Sexual Misconduct Prevention for Faculty & Staff. This product joins their misconduct prevention suite which also includes a virtual training product for students, Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training for Students. As colleges and universities strive to create a safer and more inclusive campus environment, it is imperative that everyone in the community has the skills to effectively recognize, report, and prevent misconduct.

As mandated reporters, faculty as well as anyone associated with college athletics must complete this compliance training annually. Kognito’s misconduct prevention training meets this need while equipping faculty and staff with the communication strategies to initiate important conversations. This training is Clery Act, NCAA and Title IX compliant and features three distinct modules: Misconduct Prevention, Harassment and Discrimination, and Child Abuse, Neglect and Trafficking.

“We were excited to work with so many wonderful subject matter experts and partner schools to develop a program that goes beyond a check-the-box and instead focuses on skill-building,” said Kimberly Wieland, product manager at Kognito. “Having the opportunity to virtually practice in our simulated scenarios, gives our learners the chance to hone key communication techniques where everyone can learn, work, and thrive in a safe, supportive campus environment.”
