About us

We are the Community Values Education Programme (CVEP). Our team works with students and staff across the University to co-create and deliver activities and resources that promote a strong values-driven community at Warwick. Based within the Dean of Students' Office, we support the focus on excellent academic and pastoral support within a strong learning environment. Read more about the background of the programme and how we developed here.

Be an Active Bystander

Develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make safe, effective interventions in response to inappropriate behaviours (such as harassment and sexual misconduct) through our Be an Active Bystander project.


Explores the role of men/male-identifying people in addressing gender-based violence, focusing on clubs and societies in its first phase. This project is a collaboration between CVEP, the Students' Union, and the Report and Support team.

Kindness on Campus

Help promote, practice and recognise kindness within our community. You can collect a pack of Kindness Cards, pick up some ideas from the 12 Days of Kindness calendar, and nominate someone for a Kindness on Campus award.

Values-Based Teaching Activities

Those who teach at Warwick can use our toolkit of values-based teaching activities to facilitate opportunities for their students to engage with community values.

In the Classroom

This project aims to create a leadership resource to build confidence, knowledge, and skills to enable those that teach to use Active Bystander principles to address unacceptable behaviour in the teaching space to create a safe, engaged, inclusive learning experience.
