  • Sexual Harassment Prevention Awareness and Education (SHAPE):This training is designed to help educate the university community about sexual harassment with the aim of preventing it from happening. This course covers Title IX sexual harassment as well as other unlawful forms of sexual misconduct and sexual violence. SHAPE includes video thumbnails, key learning points, a live Q&A session, viewer tips, and important reference information. About. 1 hour. Available in person or remote format. Can be combined with Anti-Discrimination Education (ADE) in either format for a total training time of 90 minutes.)
  • Anti-Discrimination Education (ADE): This training provides simple and straightforward information on NSHE and UNR policy against unlawful discrimination and harassment. Discrimination on campus can take many forms – from overt acts of unfair treatment on the basis of race to gender-based stereotyping or those unintended, insensitive comments, otherwise known as microaggressions. This training outlines recognized protected statuses on campus, explains how and when discrimination can occur, and explains why it is everyone’s responsibility to prevent unlawful discrimination and harassment in all its forms. (Approximately 1 hour. Available in person or remotely. Can be combined with SHAPE training in either format for a total training time of 90 minutes.)
  • ADA training: This is an introductory course to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The course discusses ADA requirements and considerations for a more inclusive campus. The course also identifies common barriers on campus and provides techniques for removing those barriers. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the ADA, as well as important reference information. (About 1 hour. Available in person or remotely.)
  • Privilege Workshop: This workshop is designed to help campus leaders from diverse backgrounds better identify and communicate identity issues, and learn to recognize privilege and how it works. It is a participatory workshop organized to produce a discourse where the results are drawn from the experiences and knowledge of the participants. It is more effective with small groups; however, it can be used with large groups through the use of additional facilitators. (About 1 hour. Must be done in person.)
  • Pride Pack Training: This training is designed to create dialogue and awareness about common issues faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ+) people within our community. This training introduces participants to the terminology used to describe sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, discusses the use of inclusive language and pronouns, and incorporates activities to help participants better understand their role in creating a more inclusive environment. (About 1 hour. Available in person or remotely.)
  • Consent and decision-making: This training aims to provide the information and skills needed to understand and practice consent. We’ll explore all aspects of consent (what it is, why it’s required, how to put it into practice). Through activities, video vignettes, and discussions, we’ll bust myths about consent and gender, learn about boundaries, explore the art of decision-making, and the reality of indecision. (About 1 hour. Available in person or remotely.)
  • Healthy relationships: This training covers definitions of domestic violence and dating violence, tactics an abuser can use to gain power and control over a partner, characteristics of a healthy relationship, warning signs of violent partners and available resources. This training can be customized to explore the nuances of healthy relationships with friends and relatives, in addition to romantic partners. (About 1 hour. Available in person or remotely.)
