What is SPARC
The City University of New York (CUNY) has launched its new 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 successful completion is noted in the student’s CUNYfirst and Blackboard account.
Who needs to take it?
All Freshman, Transfer students, Club/Organization Officers, Study Abroad, Overnight travel participants and Student Athletes
**Student Athletes must complete SPARC annually to be eligible to play**
What if I already took it?
If you took the SPARC training already at another institution and you transfer within the CUNY system, you must retake the SPARC training at your new institution.
