1.2. FERPA Training Online
The university is required to protect student information under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA governs the way we handle confidential information. All new employees (including student workers) who handle confidential information must complete MSU’s online FERPA training tutorial and quiz. All faculty and staff who have not already completed FERPA training either in person or via the online training, but who currently have or who may have been given electronic access to student information via myGate are required to complete the online training in order to keep or gain access to MSU systems. If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar’s Office at msu.registrar@murraystate.edu.

Online FERPA training is offered through Canvas.  Use this url to self-enroll in the training course.  https://murraystate.instructure.com/enroll/YKEW9E

1.5. Title IX Harassment Prevention Training
Frequently Asked Questions about the Online Harassment Prevention Training (PDF) 

Murray State University is committed to creating a safe environment for our faculty, staff and students. In an effort to provide a safe and supportive environment for all people, it is necessary to annually raise awareness on ways to be safe and comply with federal law.

Our responsibility is to proactively seek ways to educate and inform our campus population about the dangers of sexual harassment and sexual discrimination. To this end we have partnered with United Educators to provide a free online training available to all campus users through Canvas.  Please take a few minutes to complete all Title IX training modules that are most applicable to you in your current role at Murray State: student, staff, supervisor, faculty, or faculty supervisor.  A record of those that have completed the training will be maintained by the Title IX Coordinator and shared with the appropriate offices and individuals across campus.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the Title IX coordinator at msu.titleix@murraystate.edu.

Sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault or other forms of illegal discrimination may be reported to:
