The Bystander Intervention & Community Engagement program works to involve more men in the movement to end sexual violence. By reaching out to student communities such as fraternities, athletics, Co-ops, ROTC, and communities of color, SAPAC's workshops and resources become more accessible and relevant to the student population. Additionally, by reaching out to these groups, SAPAC can tailor its workshops to each group's specific needs and learn from the great diversity of perspectives on University of Michigan's campus.
The program is open to all students, regardless of gender, and is focused on educating men on issues surrounding sexual and intimate partner violence. The Bystander Intervention & Community Engagement program hopes to show diverse populations of men throughout the university that they play an essential role in ending sexual assault. They do so through various innovative means designed to reach a population that is often unaware of the role they could play in fighting against these issues. Some of the events that the BICE program is involved in are the No Shave November for Consent campaign, Manel and Frat Chat.
Please check out the BICE's No Shave November for Consent promtional video for 2014!
We are able to work with your organization to tailor this workshop's content/delivery to your specific needs. Please allow us at least 2 weeks to respond to all workshop requests, especially if you would like a customized workshop for your group. Workshops are free of charge so if you would like to schedule a workshop or have any questions, please visit or contact our office or:
We also offer a Bystander Intervention Workshop that includes role playing and discussions of real-life situations to help bystanders feel more comfortable taking action if they are witnessing coercive behavior.
