A message to faculty and staff from AVP and Chief HR Officer Randy Glazer about the online COVID-19 training requirement for all Oxy community members.

Dear Oxy Faculty and Staff,

As an Oxy community member, your participation is important in creating a culture of care on campus and beyond to slow the spread of COVID-19. Here, we believe in the importance of creating a safe and healthy environment for all of our employees, students, and the local community. To this end, we have partnered with EverFi to provide training modules called “Staying Healthy” that will help us all be informed on topics vital to achieving our goal. These modules, in addition to being interactive, are based in research around the best practices for communicating and maintaining a healthy work environment. They address potential lingering questions you may have about the transmission of COVID-19 and offer strategies for maintaining mental health through the pandemic. As you complete your training, we invite you to reach out to the many referenced resources in order to join the larger discussion of these topics on our campus.

EverFi will ultimately provide the course in Spanish as well as English. We will notify the campus when the Spanish version is made available.

Please keep in mind that EverFi will send this course directly to your Oxy email address. Completion of your EverFi courses is required for all Oxy employees and students. To get started, follow the link in the upcoming email to the login portal and select “Oxy Single Sign On.” Then, use your MyOxy (your email without “@oxy.edu”) credentials to login. You will be redirected to your assigned training.

Please ensure that you have completed the course by the deadline of Friday, September 4, 2020.

We appreciate your time and participation in this program. Thank you for helping us to build the best program that we can.

Randy Glazer
