Community Training Programs

The Student Conduct Office offers two digital badge programs that explore how to contribute to a safe, caring and resilient university community.


Are you a student interested in developing your harm reduction skills in a variety of areas? Are you committed to maintaining a safer and caring campus community?

Upstanders is a multi-workshop program designed to help students increase their confidence in their ability to help others on and off campus. The program consists of 20 hours of in-person training and online reflective activities. Upstanders is a partnership between the Student Conduct Office, Student Wellness Services, the Sexual and Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Support Office, and the Centre for Career and Personal Development. The trainings explore harm reduction strategies, including bystander intervention, safer substance use, mental health awareness, suicide prevention, and more.

The Conflict Management Digital Badge is a workshop-based, professional development opportunity, which helps students increase their abilities and comfort levels with respect to navigating conflicts. The trainings take approximately 12 hours to complete, and address topics ranging from conflict styles to navigating conflict in relationships to intercultural communication.
