Prevention Programming

Lewis & Clark offers multiple ways for students, faculty, and staff to engage with violence prevention on our campus

Lead the Change!

  • Lead the Change: Bystander Intervention is a workshop designed to give participants the skills necessary to recognize signs of sexual and interpersonal violence and safely intervene. Workshops are 1.5-3 hours long and tailored to your group - whether that’s students, faculty members, or administrative staff. Together we have the opportunity to make Lewis & Clark a safer place for all.

Dynamics of Violence

Trainings are 1.5-2 hours long and can be tailored to your group, although the primary focus is staff and faculty. 
  • Faculty and staff who work directly with students are highly encouraged to attend one of the workshops. Participants will leave with an understanding of their role as a responsible employee and resources for supporting students.
