This training provides the knowledge and resources to empower students to become Active Bystanders to help reduce sex-based harm in their communities. Specifically, it reviews the prevalence of sex-based violence, outlines the legal and Title IX definitions of sexual harassment, defines consent, explains mandatory reportership, challenges rape culture, dispels rape myths, discusses how to be an Active Bystander, and provides both campus- and community-based resources for students.

This training is required for all incoming students (e.g. freshmen, transfer students, new law students and graduate students) so it is likely that students may have already been exposed to this content. However, refreshers are encouraged! (Training presented by SARC outreach professionals, 60-90mins)

The UM recognizes and celebrates diversity, works toward equity, and prioritizes inclusion. This learning session is co-facilitated by SARC and the Office of Inclusive Excellence for Student Success. During this learning session, participants are provided definitions of D, E, I, and Anti-racism. The various forms of microaggressions, and their effects, are highlighted. This leads into an explanation of how students can notify UM's Equal Opportunity/Title IX office if they experience identity-based harm or are aware that another student has experienced identity-based harm. The learning session focuses on how we can foster a culture of respect at UM by suggesting certain action steps for Allyship. During the conclusion, various resources for students, including safe spaces and supportive services, are introduced.
