Required Graduate Employee (GE) Trainings

New Graduate Employees are required to complete mandatory GE training.

Mandatory GE Training

The Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between the UO and the Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation (GTFF) requires that all Graduate Employees must complete four hours of required employment training during the first academic term in which a GE begins their first GE appointment.

This training will address employment topics such as inclusive work environments, discrimination and sexual harassment policies, and other employee-related policies.

The training will be provided online in Canvas. GEs will be sent an invitation to join the Canvas class at the beginning of the first term of GE employment.

GEs will be compensated for completing the training with a stipend equivalent to four hours of pay at the GE level I minimum rate.

If the training is not completed in the first term of a student’s GE appointment, a cautionary letter will be placed in the GE’s personnel file. If the GE fails to complete the training in the second term of their appointment, their GE appointment will end at the close of that term, and the appointment will not be renewed.

Please note that new Graduate Employees must complete the Required Graduate Employee (GE) Trainings.
