This was prompted by an increase in Title IX complaints from students, some of which involved staff.

Harvard Faculty Must Now Take Harassment Training
Harvard University mandated that all faculty take an online Title IX training course for the fall 2018 semester after a report showed a 360-percent spike in Title IX complaints at the school.
While the school received 30 Title IX complaints during the 2013–2014 school year, that number grew to 138 for the 2016–2017 school year, reported The College Fix. Twenty-six percent of sexual assault complaints filed named faculty or staff members.
The “increase in the number of disclosures over this time period may be attributed, in part, to a greater awareness of University resources,” the Harvard report speculated. Disclosures include not only alleged sexual assault, but also alleged gender-based or sexual harassment.
Harvard’s new stipulation came just after government professor Jorge Dominguez announced he would resign in March following 18 sexual harassment allegations made against him.
