In the 2015-16 academic year, all first-year students must complete sexual assault/sexual violence prevention education — in two parts: an online module and an in-person training. The information and skills imparted by these trainings are important to everyone as we strive for a safe and affirming campus for all.

The first faciliatator-led trainings took place in Fall 2015 at the New Graduate Student Orientation on August 25 and at other sessions held through early November. If you attended one of those in-person sessions, you do not need to attend again.

New students who did not attend one of the Fall in-person sessions must attend one of these in-person sessions offered in the coming weeks:

  • Tuesday, January 26, 12:00-1:00 pm
    Anna Head Alumnae House, 2537 Haste
  • Tuesday, January 26, 6:30-7:30 pm
    International House, Chevron Auditorium
  • Friday, January 29, 8:00-9:00 am
    Anna Head Alumnae House, 2537 Haste
  • Monday, February 1, 10:00-11:00 am
    International House, Chevron Auditorium
  • Thursday, February 4, 2:00-3:00 pm
    International House, Chevron Auditorium
  • Saturday, February 6, 12:00-1:00 pm
    International House, Chevron Auditorium

To register for a session, go to grad.berkeley.edu/sasv-prevention. You must bring and scan your student I.D. when entering, and must remain for the entire presentation in order to fulfill this requirement. 

In addition, all first-year graduate students must complete an online educational program, called Think About It: Graduate Students. If you have not received an email from our partner CampusClarity that links you with your ID number to this course, or you have misplaced it, please go to the CampusClarity website.

Both the online and in-person trainings recognize graduate students’ unique position on campus and offer tools needed for your important role in prevention of and response to sexual assault and sexual violence. New graduate students must complete both modules before enrollment begins for Fall 2016. Your program chair and faculty advisor will help ensure your completion of this requirement in your education.
