Colby-Sawyer College’s prevention and training efforts are coordinated, organized, facilitated and assessed in conjunction with the SAVE Committee.
Safe Colleges & Sexual Respect
All Colby-Sawyer College students, faculty, and staff must complete the Campus SaVE Act online training each year. Colby-Sawyer College partners with Vector Solutions and their Safe Colleges training program.
Additionally, all students must complete the Sexual Respect training that covers federal and state law, and Colby-Sawyer's rights, policies, responsibilities, and resources regarding sexual and interpersonal violence. This is an annual training that can be accessed through Moodle.
Colby-Sawyer College utilizes Bringing in the Bystander® as its bystander training. Bringing in the Bystander focuses on building and maintaining the CSC community through empowering students to be alert to "red flags," and providing students the tools to help others by knowing resources and referring others to those resources.
