OIEC provides evidence-based educational programs for students, staff, and faculty that build skills for effectively reducing and addressing discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, intimate partner abuse, and stalking. Our goal is to improve the campus and workplace culture and foster a welcoming community for all.

Training can be customized to meet specific department, program, committee, or group needs.

This workshop takes a closer look at behaviors that are considered discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct and uses case studies to practice skills for recognizing, responding to, and reporting concerns. The reporting process and support resources are discussed.

This is a multi-session education and skill-building program. The training uses real-world examples to explore factors that promote or impede bystanders from helping. Participants brainstorm strategies for intervening effectively when they witness situations where help may be needed.

We offer sessions to:

  • Undergraduate students – all incoming students in their first semester are required to attend a session. Booster sessions are offered for classes, student groups, and student organizations
  • Graduate students – offered at GTP fall/spring intensive and upon request. Focuses on skills for inside the classroom, among peers, and interactions with faculty
  • Faculty and staff – departmental sessions for addressing concerns in the workplace, among peers, and in the classroom

We work with departments, units, and committees to identify key areas where bias is most likely to occur and what policies, practices, and structural changes can help mitigate bias and increase inclusion. Personal practices for improving interactions with colleagues and students both inside and outside the classroom are also discussed.

This is a skills-based training for addressing concerning behaviors and comments and addressing conflict in the classroom, at work, or among peers. It includes coaching and practice on what approaches and responses are most effective, and ways to set the stage for more positive and productive interactions.

In this interactive, discussion-based session, participants learn what affirmative consent means and how to communicate effectively with a sexual partner. Participants also explore what sexual assault means under the law and university policy. Campus statistics and risk factors are explored along with campus and community resources and reporting options.
