Instructors want the best for their students, but in and out of the classroom they may observe troubling behaviors that threaten students’ well-being. Though expert in their disciplines, they may feel less confident about how and when to intervene to help make a positive difference. This interactive session designed exclusively for IUP faculty will utilize a special version of Green Dot Bystander Intervention training created to help faculty work together to develop manageable tools to promote non-violence in their spheres. Participants will consider techniques for intervention and work with other faculty to apply them to relatable scenarios. It will conclude with the development of a toolkit to empower faculty to work with their students in promoting positive culture change.
