To request a SAPAC educational offering for staff or faculty, please fill out our online request form below. After submitting the form you will be contacted by email within 5 business days (excluding holidays), connecting you to the appropriate SAPAC staff member to go over the details of your request.

Requests must be submitted three 3 weeks (21 days) prior to the desired date of your workshop. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your needs in a shorter time frame, but we will try our best (our requests are handled first come first serve-- depending on the volume of pending requests, your workshop may need to be rescheduled for a later date).

  • Our workshops for staff and faculty aim to create interactive spaces to engage in dialogue about healthy relationships, consent, bystander intervention, self-care, and responding to disclosures. All workshops are designed to be between 60-120 minutes, depending on the workshop and the community needs.
  • Due to the interactive nature of our workshops, we try to keep a cap of participants at 40 individuals. Please let us know if you have a group larger than this size, and we can discuss potentially holding multiple workshops. In order for us to be able to move forward with confirming your requested/preferred workshop date, workshop requests require in-person (or virtual) planning and preparation meeting(s) (to tailor and craft the workshop to be relevant to your community and needs).
  • In order to be able to effectively prepare for your workshop (by your preferred date) this meeting must occur in a timely manner before your requested/preferred workshop date. We appreciate your cooperation in this.
  • If your organization is seeking mediation or conflict management, the Office of Student Conflict Resolution or Center for Campus Involvement provide student organization support and can serve as resources.
  • PLEASE NOTE THESE EDUCATIONAL OFFERINGS ARE FOR UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN STAFF AND FACULTY ONLY
