Ready To Go Programs

Bringing in the Bystander is a sexual and relationship violence prevention curriculum designed for a college audience. The overarching goals of Bringing in the Bystander are:

  • Participants will understand the concept of bystander intervention and their role as members of the CC community to intervene in the case of sexual and relationship violence before, during and after an incident.
  • Participants will be able to identify a continuum of inappropriate sexual behaviors, sexual and relationship violence.
  • Participants will develop empathy for those who have experienced sexual violence.
  • Participants will understand personal barriers to bystander intervention and techniques to overcome them, including the role that factors of identity (i.e. sexual orientations, race, gender identity, etc.) play.
  • Participants will develop strategies for safely intervening in instances of sexual and relationship violence in ways that fit their given ability and skill set. 
QPR is a prevention training for participants to be able to recognize the warning signs of suicidal thinking, behavior, attempts and question, persuade, and refer people at risk for help.

The Good Sex Series is focused on providing sexuality education that will help students cultivate fulfilling, pleasurable, safe, and healthy sex lives that affirm their identities and desires. Past programs have included "Ethics of Sex", a faculty panel discussion regarding questions cultural and political dilemmas around sex and how those might be relevant to students. A recent pleasure-focused event, "TEDSex," brought experts to give brief 10-minute presentations such as "Sexting," "Sex in Antiquity," "Anal," "How to Please a Dick Without Being a Dick," and more.
The How to Help Series targets specific specific areas that would require students intervention on behalf of a friend. "How to Support a Survivor."
The Science of Substance Series investigates the impact of various substances on individuals and communities. Whether focused on alcohol and the brain or marijuana and medical research, these help students cultivate a more nuance understanding of the roles that substances play in their lives.
This is a new program. Description coming soon.
