Sexual Assault Education & Prevention Program

Upcoming Events & Trainings


The Sexual Misconduct Prevention Education Program in Title IX is offering an adaptation of Bringing In The Bystander sessions approximately 1x per week (90 minutes sessions) to help educate our community on the topic of sexual misconduct. The learning objectives include:

  • IDENTIFY behaviors on a continuum of violence
  • DEVELOP empathy for those who have experienced violence
  • PRACTICE safe and appropriate intervention skills
  • COMMIT to intervene before, during and after an incident of sexual abuse, relationship violence and stalking occurs

This new change has been implemented as it has been determined thru evidence based studies that small, interactive, experiential style of learning is more beneficial.

The dates/times these events are being hosted are*:

Tuesday, February 27th



Thursday, March 15th



Monday, March 26th



Tuesday, April 3rd



Wednesday, April 4th



Thursday, April 19th



*Dates crossed out are no longer available.  

If you would like to sign up please contact Session attendance is limited to 20-25 people so signing up is mandatory. We ask that people come prepared to be interactive and all electronic devices are put away. The team will reschedule/cancel sessions if there are no less than 10 people in attendance.
