The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act (hereinafter referred to as The Act) is Section 304 of the re-authorized Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and was signed into law on March 7, 2013. The Act requires institutions of higher education, such as Ball State University, to provide mandatory training to university employees covering topics and providing primary prevention and awareness programs regarding rape awareness, domestic and dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.  

Most first and second year students have had similar training but this training is more detailed and designed for employees of the university.

This training is manditory for all current student employees, will commence during the spring semester, and become a component for the onboarding of all student new hires.

LawRoom, our Title IX training vendor, will be sending e-mails to student employees containing login information and a link to access the training module.  You will then have 15 days, upon notification, to comply with the training.

Because this training is mandatory, student employees will be paid by their respective departments.  Anticipated time of completion is 90 minutes.  Student employees may take the training on premises or in a university lab.   Once the training is completed, the automated program issues a certificate which must be presented to the supervisor in order to credit the student employee’s time with up to 90 minutes.  This time, added to an existing work schedule, cannot exceed the maximum number of hours allowed by university policy. 

  • The online module will be delivered by the training vendor, LawRoom.  Do not delete any communications from LawRoom!
  • A list of names and email addresses of all student employees currently employed will be generated for initial training. 
  • Newly hired student employees will be sent to LawRoom to start the training process.
  • LawRoom will email each student employee instructions on how to establish a training account and gain access to the SaVE Act compliance training.  This email should be retained by student employees.
  • Student employees may complete the training at their leisure within the time allotted (within 15 days of notification), however, they will receive periodic, auto-generated, reminders until the training is completed.
  • Training may be in the workplace or at a university designated site, such as a computer lab.
  • Training may be divided into segments for the convenience of the student employee and supervisor until the entire module is completed.
  • Student employees with multiple work assignments will be paid by the department which has the student employee’s primary assignment.
  • A Certificate of Completion is generated at the completion of the training module.  Student employees must present their Certificate of Completion to their supervisor in order to receive credit (time in Kronos).

Failure of the student employee to comply with this training mandate within 15 days of notification will result in the termination of the student employee’s work assignment(s).
