University of Guam officials have announced a new program that will provide students and employees with sexual misconduct awareness training.

The Pacific Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1Zt24y0) that officials say students and faculty will be required to take the training, which takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete, each year. Students will take the training online, while university employees must attend the training in person.

The requirement comes as psychology Professor Michael Ehlert faces charges of criminal sexual misconduct and official misconduct. Court documents say he is accused of forcing or coercing two students to accomplish an act of sexual penetration in October 2014.

Ehlert, who is on administrative leave, has pleaded not guilty and awaits trial.
