Information and resources for staff

How CVEP works with staff

  • We work with a network of departmental contacts to embed community values activities and resources within their department. These staff members usually have a responsibility for student experience and departmental culture. Activities include the 'Introduction to Active Bystander' workshops delivered in Term 1, embedded in the students' timetable. Find out more about CVEP and meet the team.
  • We collaborate with staff to co-create activities and resources for students. For example, we created the Exploring values in academic induction toolkit to help support the introduction of Warwick Values to incoming students in a way that is relevant to their everyday experiences.
  • Another goal of the programme is to showcase and host relevant work from staff and departments to ensure that any work around values education can be accessed and adopted by others. Explore resources to think about and challenge social expectations (prepared by Dr Cath Lambert, Associate Professor of Sociology, Warwick).
  • As well as working with departments, we also work closely with the Students' Union to deliver activities and resources to Clubs and Societies.
  • Information relevant to your students:

    • Active Bystander Intervention course: A 5-session, HEAR-accredited course addressing sexual misconduct and abuse on campus.
    • Drink spiking: If a student has reported being affected by drink-spiking, please refer to the information and advice here.
    • Use this Padlet to identify opportunities for students to engage with efforts to tackle sexual violence and abuse, hate and harassment, and other harmful behaviours, as well as exploring broader University efforts to build a safer, more inclusive University community.

Current CVEP projects/opportunities relevant to staff

  • The wider Dean of Students Office team is working in collaboration with Social Inclusion to host the Warwick Inclusion Conference on 16th June.
  • Active Bystanders in the Teaching Space project (funded by WIHEA). 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.
  • Hear My Name: Find out how to add an audio name badge to your email signature to help facilitate respectful interactions around names. Following a pilot of the technology, the team are now working on a paper to share the findings and recommendations.
