The City University of New York (CUNY) has launched its on-line training program known as the Sexual and Interpersonal Violence Prevention and Response Course (“SPARC”). This program addresses New York State’s Enough is Enough (“EIE”) statute that requires 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 available on a Blackboard platform and CUNYfirst to do lists and successful completion is noted in the student’s CUNYfirst and Blackboard accounts.

The SPARC Learning Experience Aims to:
