Navigating Sexual Violence: Tools, Innovations, and Best Practices for the Classroom

Description

Faculty, Full-Time Lecturers, and Part-Time Lecturers are eligible to apply for the Critical Pedagogy on Sexual Violence Learning Community. 

The purpose of the learning community is to support faculty who want to meaningfully challenge the culture of sexual violence. We will offer hands-on, scenario-based, and evidence-driven best practices for addressing sexual violence in the classroom, including creating a trauma-informed syllabus, using (or not) trigger warnings, handling offensive comments and common myths, facilitating difficult discussions, responding to disclosures, and offering students a hopeful way forward. Participants will also learn about how to support survivors and connect them to resources. This initiative supports key recommendations from the EMU Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Misconduct Culture including creating a new general education discipline for gendered violence. Discussion topics will include rape culture, consent, bystander intervention, toxic masculinity, gas-lighting, gender violence, sexual violence, and intersectional oppression in relation to sexual violence. Participants completing this seminar will receive a $300 honorarium.
