SafeCampus

Training options

SafeCampus provides in-person training and online resources to support violence prevention and response at the UW. We believe that training is one vital component toward creating a safe and supportive UW community.

Open trainings for UW staff, faculty and students

SafeCampus provides monthly trainings that are open to all UW staff, faculty and students. Registered attendees will receive a training reminder email with updates and preparation instructions a few days before the training. 

  • Violence Prevention and Response: During this interactive training, we ask participants to consider their unique role in preventing violence at the UW. We explore warning signs of different forms of violence and discuss workplace violence, relationship violence, sexual harassment, stalking and suicide. We will expand your toolkit of response strategies by briefly practicing bystander intervention techniques and building your understanding of campus resources.

Departmental/program training

In-person work-group training for staff, faculty or student employee groups is especially effective, because it allows participants to think about violence prevention in the context of each group’s unique setting.

Remote training document

SafeCampus offers a remote training document to UW faculty, staff and student employees who do not work in a central UW location, work remotely or only work night shifts. The remote document can only be used if an individual has no option to attend an in-person training. To be approved for access to the remote document, please send a request to SafeCampus at safecampus@uw.edu.

If you had access to the remote training document in the past and the link is not working, it’s because the PDF has moved with our new website. Please contact SafeCampus to regain access.

SafeCampus does not offer active shooter preparedness training. For this kind of training, please contact the University of Washington Police Department.
