We’re excited to release today a consent workshop developed by our friends at the University of San Francisco’s Division of Student Life.
The workshop would be a helpful addition to any orientation program or a stand-alone refresher course for later in the year. It covers the definition of consent and gives some important statistics about sexual assault and intimacy in the campus community. It also gives students the opportunity to practice communication skills related to asking, giving, and denying consent.
Here are the downloads:
- Consent Workshop Women PowerPoint
- Consent Women Discussion Guide
- Consent Women Handout
- Consent Women Handout Answer Key
- Consent Women Assessment
- Consent Women Assessment Answer Key
- Presentation Assessment
Although this workshop was developed for women, it can easily be adapted for students of any gender. In fact, we hope schools will tailor these resources to fit their unique needs and we encourage you to make refinements and improvements as you see fit. We do ask, however, that you share any changes you make to a workshop and make them freely available to the whole student conduct community (that’s why we use a creative commons license).
You can email revised workshops or new workshops to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post your innovative ideas on our blog. We’re hoping to pull together a clearing house of ideas and resources related to student conduct, harm-reduction training, and student life for all professionals and advocates to use in creating best practices and programs to eliminate sexual violence on their campuses.
