Active Bystanders Challenging Bullying, Harassment and Sexual Misconduct #NotInOurUCD (online student course)
The course is part of the Orientation Brightspace Course "Introduction to UCD 2022/23" and takes about one hour to complete. It is divided in three sections covering what it means to be an active bystander and why it is important, as well as inappropriate behaviours of bullying, harassment and sexual misconduct. There are a range of supports available to students in UCD and we want to ensure that bystanders or people impacted by these behaviours feel empowered to take action.
This important online course for incoming first-year students was developed by UCD Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in collaboration with Academic colleagues, students and subject matter experts from key stakeholder groups. We want everyone in our community, including our students, to help build a culture where inappropriate behaviours are not tolerated and where everyone can safely intervene as an active bystander.
