Workshops for Faculty of Law Students

The University of Windsor offers students a 3-hour sexual assault prevention workshop, Bringing in the Bystander®, developed by researchers at the University of New Hampshire. Led by Law students who are trained peer educators, BITB® is integrated into the year 1 Law curriculum.

 

Students who take these workshops are encouraged to see themselves as potential bystanders who have the knowledge and skills to Do The Right Thing.

 

You learn:

  • Why it is important to speak out against social norms that support sexual assault and coercion
  • How to recognize and safely interrupt situations that often lead to sexual assault
  • Ways to help and support survivors of assault

 

UWindsor is the first Canadian campus to use BITB® and the only campus where it is integrated into the curriculum. Workshops are offered every fall and winter term. This year, 1500+ students will have the opportunity to participate.
