Community Values Education - Positive, Inclusive, Empowering

What is the Community Values Education programme?

The Community Values Education programme launched in September 2019 (following 18 months of development work). The programme will support the student learning experience by implementing a variety of activities that contribute to a stronger campus community.

All activities are co-created with students and are informed by our shared community values: openness, equality and diversity, mutual respect and trust.

The programme explores the University’s work on behavioural values within academic departments, offering resources for students to explore Warwick's guiding principles in a structured and supportive way.


Active Bystander Intervention course - student volunteers needed

A key element of the programme is to trial an evidence-based 'Active Bystander Intervention' at Warwick. The intervention focuses on the prevention of sexual misconduct, violence, and abuse at university.

There are eight sessions in total (one a week for eight weeks with a break in reading week). The programme is as long as this to really embed the messages and give students a chance to practice their skills.

Being an Active Bystander sends a powerful signal that problematic behaviour is unacceptable. It’s about building a sense of community and equipping students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to act as Active Bystanders.

Students can book a place on the course here.
