Training options

UPDATE (4/9/2020): SafeCampus is currently hosting virtual live training sessions due to COVID-19. 

SafeCampus provides in-person and virtual 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.

Violence Prevention and Response live virtual training

SafeCampus provides training that is open to all UW staff, faculty, and students. We are currently hosting all training virtually in accordance with UW guidance regarding social-distancing due to COVID-19. 

  • 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.

After registering attendees will receive an email with zoom information and additional preparation instructions.

Departmental/program virtual training

Training for staff, faculty, or student employee communities is especially effective because it allows participants to think about violence prevention in the context of each group’s unique academic 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 virtual 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.
