In 1996, Jane Tompkins called for a more comprehensive view of education saying, “We are educators of whole human beings.” Given the rise of campus sexual assault and national legislation about sexual violence prevention and intervention on college campuses, her statement has never been more true. TCU faculty members interact with students on a daily (even hourly!) basis, and as a result are in a position to recognize, discourage, and prevent a culture that enables sexual violence. In this session led by Social Work faculty member, Nada Elias-Lambert, faculty will learn the concept of bystander interventions to prevent sexual violence, learn about TCU’s campus-wide sexual violence prevention initiatives, and discuss and practice bystander intervention skills that can be especially helpful when interacting with students in the classroom and beyond.
