Toolik Field Station Sexual Misconduct and Title IX Training

All residents of Toolik Field Station (TFS) must complete the Toolik Field Station Sexual Misconduct and Title IX Training. Also required is the successful completion of a short quiz and the approval of two waivers. Housing reservations at Toolik Field Station will not be honored without the successful completion of the training, quiz, and approval of the waivers. It is highly advised that this training is completed as soon as housing reservations are made, or shortly thereafter. In some cases, up to 24 hours will be given upon arrival to TFS to complete these requirements. It may take up to 24 hours for a completed training to be posted to existing housing reservations.

Training

This short training provides a brief overview of sexual misconduct and Title IX at TFS including: policy, reporting, response, and resources. It is informational and supplemental. Ultimately each individual resident of TFS is responsible for abiding by the TFS code of conduct and conducting themselves in a respectful and professional manner.

Quiz

This quiz tests the basic knowledge covered in the required TFS Sexual Misconduct and Title IX Training. You must score 100% on the quiz and sign the linked waivers by checking the appropriate box in order to receive credit for the required training.

Non-Student Records Release to the NSF

The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) manages the Toolik Field Station. UAF is committed to a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which educational programs and activities are free from discrimination on the basis of sex and gender identity. All members of the UAF community and visitors have the right to be free from all forms of gender and sex-based discrimination, including sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. Because gender-based and sexual misconduct has a negative impact on members of our community, UAF has a zero-tolerance policy for it. Students or employees found responsible for engaging in acts of gender-based or sexual misconduct will be disciplined, which may include suspension, expulsion or termination.

Toolik Field Station is a grantee institution of the National Science Foundation (NSF). NSF will not tolerate sexual discrimination or harassment, including sexual assault, occurring at its grantee institutions.

UAF follows federal and state laws prohibiting sexual harassment and sexual assault, particularly Title IX. UAF and NSF have a mutual interest in assuring their facilities address discrimination occurring on the basis of sex and gender identity, and that interest is best served by sharing documents pertaining to such incidents. Those documents may include employees’ personnel records.

The Alaska Personnel Records Act, AS 39.25.080, Board of Regents’ Policy 04.01.062 and University Regulations 04.01.062 control when the University of Alaska may release employees’ personnel records. By signing this release, you are explicitly waiving rights you may have under that law, policy, and regulation.

By signing this document you agree and stipulate that any records, including your personnel records, relating to an investigation into discrimination on the basis of sex and gender identity, including but not limited to investigations by UAF’s Title IX office, EEO office, Police Department, Human Resources office or Dean of Students Office, may be shared with the NSF for the purpose of investigating, reporting, tracking and acting on discrimination on the basis of sex and gender identity at or associated with the Toolik Field Station.
