Put information about the Counseling Center or local resource in your office.
- Put a violence prevention poster up in your office. When asked about it share your commitment to preventing violence.
Include a violence prevention statement in your email signature line.
Here are some examples:
- I am committed to a community free of violence
- No one has to do everything. Everyone has to do something…What will you do for campus safety.
- Violence prevention: a single choice in one moment that makes this community safer.
- My legacy…a community free of violence.
- What kind of campus do you want? Be part of the solution and help end violence
Make a Policy. Add a statement to your syllabus or student worker training materials defining the classroom or office as a safe space that will not tolerate violence of any kind. Consider working with your class to draft a non-violent statement that you will put on your syllabus.
- Because this class needs to be a participatory community if students are to fulfill their potential for learning, people who disrupt the community by their words or actions harm that community. Rude, sarcastic, obscene, or disrespectful speech and disruptive behavior have a negative impact on everyone’s learning. When a person disrupts the class in these ways, the course instructor will remove the disruptive person from the class.
