The Office of the Provost and the Office for Diversity and Inclusion are piloting one form of training—bystander intervention training—to equip faculty and academic staff with tools to respond to academic harassment and bullying behavior. We are excited that internationally recognized expert, Dr. Loraleigh Keashly, who is also Distinguished Service Professor of Communication and Associate Dean of the College of Fine, Performing, and Communication Arts at WSU, has agreed to run these training sessions this summer and we invite you to participate. In this seminar, participants will learn more about the impact of bystander intervention and will identify a menu of strategies that can be used when witnessing or directly experiencing bullying, and in the aftermath. Note that participation is limited to people who have attended one of Dr. Keashly’s seminars this past academic year since the information she disseminated forms a foundation on which to build bystander skills.
