New Student Orientation Workbook

Get Inclusive Required Bystander Intervention Training

Who is Required to Complete "Get Inclusive" Training? All ACC first-time college students and transfer students are required to complete this online training. 

What is this Training For? Standing up and looking out for one another’s safety is a core value we all share as members of Alvin Community College.  One way in which we commit to this value is by making sure that we intervene when we observe anyone whose safety is being threatened, being harassed or is in danger of sexual assault or violence. We hold ourselves to a high standard of never being silent and never being passive bystanders.

What does it mean to be an active bystander who intervenes in the time of need? Where do I find help if necessary? How do I intervene without taking on risks? These are the questions you will receive answers to in a free online training module provided by our training partner, Get Inclusive.

What you need to do: You are required to complete a brief (20-30 minute) self-paced module on bystander intervention.

How to Start?  Look for an invitation email from Get Inclusive and click on the link provided in the email.  

Please Note:
1.  Use your official ACC student email address.
2.  All responses to quizzes and questionnaires in the course are kept 100% confidential.

What Will You Learn?  Learning objectives for this training module include:

  • Consider the value and benefits of engaging all campus members as allies in sexual assault prevention by increasing knowledge and skills around bystander intervention and risk reduction.
  • Develop a shared language around terms related to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and consent.
  • Become familiar with the college’s statement prohibiting domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
  • Recognize appropriate and inappropriate behaviors along the continuum of sexual behaviors.
  • Increase empathy for victims of sexual assault resulting in a heightened sense of responsibility for playing a role in decreasing sexual violence on campus.
  • Become aware of the warning signs of sexually abusive and violent behavior.

If you have any question, contact Marilyn Dement, Vice President of Student Services at: VPofStudentServices@AlvinCollege.edu.
