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 session trainings

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. Registration requires use of a UW netid.

  • 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 have a discussion about 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

Individual 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.
