GRADUATE STUDENT TRAINING COURSE OVERVIEW
Graduate students are in a unique position on your campus and require different training scenarios for sexual assault prevention. This course allows them to practice bystander intervention skills in relatable scenarios so they are prepared to respond if it occurs.
It is built to teach strategies for complex scenarios like how to identify harassment from a faculty member or advisor and how to respectfully engage with undergraduate students. Learners will be encouraged to reflect of the impact of sexual assault on a community and their role in creating a safe and supportive campus environment.
