Training Program Expands Anti-Bullying Effort

A message from Chancellor Gary May

Dear Colleagues:

In response to various reports, campus surveys, and guidance from the Office of the President, the UC Davis Taskforce on Workplace Climate recently recommended that all employees, especially those with supervisory roles, attend an anti-bullying training to advance our collective efforts to foster a positive working environment. A training module titled, Is It Bullying? Awareness and Strategies, was completed in 2016 and has been piloted on a limited basis on the Davis and Sacramento campuses.
