All students are required to take a title IX Training, which provides information to help students examine gender affairs and the interconnected issues of healthy relationships, "hooking up", substance abuse, and sexual assault. The course promotes a healthier and safer campus environment for everyone.

Faculty, staff, and students are offered the Open Doors Training, which teaches members of the Buckeye community to identify and respond to incidents of bias.

Members of the Buckeye community can also participate in the Safe Zone Trainings, which addresses the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, and pansexual (LGBTQQIAP) people.
