SPARC Training Program

CUNY has implemented a new training program called SPARC (Sexual and Interpersonal Violence Prevention and Response Course) to provide students with this training.

New York State Education Law 129-b, also called the Enough is Enough (“EIE”) statute requires that all NYS colleges provide students with ongoing education and training about sexual misconduct, including domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, and sexual violence.

SPARC is an online training module developed by SUNY in collaboration with CUNY that educates students* about sexual misconduct, ways to prevent it, and the campus’ response to a complaint. The content has been customized to reflect New York State requirements and CUNY policies.

SPARC is accessible to the campus community through the following link:

*NOTE: All incoming students (first-year and transfers) are required to complete SPARC. In addition, student-athletes, student government members, club leaders, students who are engaging in domestic or international travel and students who are going on internships must also complete SPARC.
