The Student Conduct Office provides a number of trainings on campus to help promote a safe, caring campus community.

Bystander Intervention Training

Have you ever been in a situation that you felt something was wrong but you weren’t sure what to do? Bystander Intervention Training provides students, faculty, and staff with the opportunity to learn about the bystander effect and options for intervening in situations of abusive, isolating, or stigmatizing behavior.

Upcoming sessions:

  • Thursday, March 25 from 4 – 6 p.m.
  • Monday, April 12 from 2 – 4 p.m.

We will email registrants a Zoom link a day before each workshop.

Addressing Harassment Online

“Never read the comments!” “Don’t feed the trolls!”

The Comments Section: Addressing Harassment Online is a facilitated session that provides students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to talk about what online harassment is (and isn’t), what the potential impacts can be individually and on a community. The session will also review laws and University policies around the issue, as well as strategies for preventing, supporting, and intervening in situations of online harassment.

Upcoming sessions:

Understanding Anger

Understanding Anger gives participants an opportunity to learn about how this important emotion can affect us. In order to become more effective at addressing conflict with others, we need to become aware of the role of anger in the situation and practice the skills of self-management. This workshop also provides some tips and strategies for responding to anger in others, and de-escalating intense situations.

Upcoming Sessions:
