Camosun College is committed to creating and maintaining a healthy learning and working environment in which sexual violence and misconduct is not tolerated. In order to provide the key information, knowledge, skills and confidence required to support those who have experienced sexual violence or misconduct, and prevent this from occurring to others, we are developing educational offerings for employees and students.
Bystander Intervention Training
Bringing in the Bystander teaches students how to overcome resistance to intervening when they observe incidence of sexualized violence and misconduct. By empowering students to become pro-social bystanders, we hope to create a community response to preventing sexualized violence and fostering a safer environment on campus. Students will leave the session with greater ability to identify the continuum of inappropriate sexual behaviours and learn where bystander intervention is appropriate. This in-person training is 90 minutes in duration.
