Invest in your institution by building a network of student facilitators to deliver dynamic learning sessions about addressing sexual violence and misconduct. Once you have your facilitator network up and running, your entire campus will be talking about consent, bystander intervention, and improving social norms. As individuals begin making more positive contributions to their community, you will see the effects on a large scale. And once students see how committed their peers are, the momentum will only grow.
Informed-U offers training and ongoing support for facilitators, access to our learning tools, as well as help and resources around implementation of the program.
Informed-U will There are a variety of ways to bring Informed-U to your campus. In addition to the standard options below, we can work with you to find other solution to meet your needs.
Full-Scale Implementation: Under this model, your entire student body gets access to the Standing Together Against Sexual Violence and Misconduct program during each year of your license period. Our base package includes training (and follow-up training) for up to 50 facilitators. Additionally, we will help you figure out the implementation plan that works best for you, including things such as which office or unit will oversee the program, which audiences will receive the program, and who will serve as student facilitators. Once this has been decided we will provide promotional materials to recruit participants and support you in creating surveys and collecting data to help you assess the program. Our competitive pricing is based on enrollment and geography.
Single-Day Events: If you're looking to host an event during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, or if you want to target a specific student-group or team, a single-day event is the option for you. Under this model, you can reach as many as 400 student participants in one day.
Trials: Perhaps you're looking for programming for your peer educators or sexual assault prevention group to use. We can introduce them to the program by running a small introductory trial at cost. Currently trials are available for institutions in OH, MI, IN, and IL.

Audiences: Freshmen Orientation, First Year Experience Course, Residence Life, Student Groups (Greek, Athletics, etc.)
