To help prevent sexual violence, all members of the Bakersfield College community, students, staff, and faculty, are required to receive sexual violence prevention and intervention training and education regularly. Bakersfield College’s curriculum, tailored to each audience, educates our community about sexual violence, how to prevent it, the role of intervention and what local resources are available.
Key Concepts Covered in Bakersfield College’s Curriculum for Every Audience are:
Definitions of different forms of sexual violence
Social norms, including the attitudes and beliefs that can normalize violence
Responding to sexual violence using methods that acknowledge the impact of violence and trauma on survivors’ lives
Local resources, including confidential support for survivors of sexual violence and appropriate services for those accused of sexual violence
Rights and options about reporting sexual violence
