III. Required Training and Information

Faculty at the University of California, Irvine are required to take a sexual harassment prevention training course. For more information, including details on how and when you can complete this program, please visit the Title IX Officer FAQ. The website also provides contact information for reporting incidents of sexual harassment. You are responsible for being familiar with the University of California’s Sexual Harassment Policy. UC Irvine’s Faculty Code of Conduct has relevant provisions in Part II. A. 6 and 7.
The University of California has been working to address system-wide challenges in cybersecurity and enhance its ability to manage and respond to ongoing threats effectively. All University of California employees on active payroll status are required to complete on-line Cyber Security Awareness Training through the UC Learning Center. The training should take about 50 minutes and is required annually.

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulates the release of student information. It is very important that protected student information, such as grades, is never posted in public locations (e.g., course websites or classroom/office doors), even if listed by ID number. You should also password-protect any protected data (such as grades or student photos) that are sent via email. If you are ever unsure of the legality of posting or accessing information about a student, contact the Assistant Dean for Student Services, Kyle Jones, for more information, and remember that it is generally best to err on the side of caution.

You are welcome but not required to attend FERPA training. For more information, schedules, and workshop signups, see the FERPA workshops webpage.

As a public institution, please note that UCI must disclose public records unless a specific exemption from disclosure applies. A public record may be any document or record, written or electronic, that is used, retained, or maintained by the University in the course of business. Any records requests that you receive must be responded to in a timely manner. Any records that you hold (including emails) may be released in a records request. For more information, visit the UCI Public Records Office website.
