Training Summary for Students

Required training

First time, full time students are required to participate in a Title IX training.

Students who are required to participate in this training are contacted directly by the Student Life Department.

To complete the training, students will view a short video. After watching the entire video, students must complete a 10-question quiz. In order to complete the training, all questions do not need to be answered correctly. However, it is encouraged for students to review the questions marked incorrectly after the quiz. Once the quiz is complete, students should enter their name and myWilmU email address on the web page, and click “Submit” to confirm their participation.
