Ready To Go Programs

Students learn what it means to be an active bystander, explore the intersections of systems of oppression, violence, mental health, and substance use that may cause harm to the community, evaluate possible barriers to intervention, and practice specific intervention strategies. The broad goal is to create a compassionate community in which all members take responsibility for one another's well-being; this broad goal is supported by 3 more specific goals:

  • Disrupting systems of oppression and the continua of violence associated with them
  • Recognizing and responding to mental health challenges
  • Creating a culture that supports responsible substance use, sober students, and students in recovery
QPR is a prevention training for participants to be able to recognize the warning signs of suicidal thinking, behavior, attempts and question, persuade, and refer people at risk for help.

The Good Sex Series is focused on providing sexuality education that will help students cultivate fulfilling, pleasurable, safe, and healthy sex lives that affirm their identities and desires. Past programs have included "Ethics of Sex", a faculty panel discussion regarding questions cultural and political delemmas around sex and how those might be relevant to students. A recent pleasure-focused event, "TEDSex," brought experts to give brief 10-minute presentations such as "Sexting," "Sex in Antiquity," "Anal," "How to Please a Dick Without Being a Dick," and more.
The How to Help Series is related to the BADASS series as it targets specific specific areas that would require students intervention on behalf of a friend. "How to Support a Survivor."
The Science of Substance Series investigates the impact of various substances on individuals and communities. Whether focused on alcohol and the brain or marijuana and medical research, these help students cultivate a more nuanced understanding of the roles that substances play in their lives.
Boundaries are often thought of as walls or barriers to keep others out, but boundaries are actually the opposite: they can be tools to build trust and safety within relationships. Maintaining healthy boundaries can be challenging, and even more difficult during transitional life moments, like attending college. In this interactive workshop, we’ll discuss strategies and resources for setting healthy boundaries, and where to go for support at CC if your boundary is violated.
