Engendering Respectful Communities (ERC) Workshop for Graduate and Post-Doctoral Students

Online in Zoom

Engendering Respectful Communities (ERC) is a one session dynamic workshop developed by University of Michigan’s Rackham Graduate School and various offices in Student Life (SAPAC, Spectrum Center, the Office of Student Conflict Resolution (OSCR) and U-M Educational Theatre Company (ETC), that combines multiple instructional tools to engage graduate (MS, PhD) and postdoctoral students in meaningful dialogue about the various forms of sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, assault, and discrimination that they may encounter. A major goal of the workshop is to address the complexities faced by graduate and postdoctoral students as they learn how to create respectful communities, learn how to support their peers, and to engage in bystander intervention, with the aim of increasing awareness of barriers and encouraging strategizing to overcome them. Further, through ERC, students are introduced to on- and off-campus resources and, ideally, gain more knowledge of how sexual misconduct unfolds in relevant settings.
