As the 2017-2018 academic year approaches, Colby remains focused on creating broad culture change around the issue of sexual misconduct. In particular, Colby is committed to fostering an environment in which sexual respect and consent are valued and campus resources and processes for addressing sexual misconduct are widely known and understood.
Central to this commitment is Colby’s belief that one-time sexual misconduct prevention initiatives aimed at incoming students are insufficient for creating lasting culture change. Rather, Colby believes that returning students deserve continued engagement around this important topic as they develop into campus leaders. For this reason, Colby extends its mandatory peer-led sexual misconduct prevention training initiative to all students returning to campus for their second year.
During Fall 2017, all second-year Colby students will be required to register for and attend one 90-minute peer-led sexual misconduct prevention training session. This training is designed to build upon the peer-led training sessions that you completed as a first-year student and focus more extensively on developing bystander intervention skills.
Peer-led training sessions for second-year students will be led by a team of trained peer educators and will be offered at various times during October to ensure that each training session is small and to accommodate a range of academic and cocurricular schedules. Click on the Registration Tab below to view all one-session trainings with open seats and register for the training that best fits your schedule.
It is important that you register for this single-session training by Monday, September 25, and that you complete the requirement on time so you may register for Spring 2018 courses. Please contact Emily Schusterbauer (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
