Faculty/Staff Outreach & Education

MSU faculty and staff constantly interact with the student community and require a specialized knowledge base on sexual and relationship violence to better serve students and the greater campus community. Faculty and staff training will explore ways to be supportive and delve into the impact that sexual and relationship violence has to better understand what survivors go through and how to best serve students. Workshops for faculty and staff are in development.

If you are interested in programming for faculty or staff, please reach out to Rae Chaloult, chaloul2@msu.edu, Prevention Specialist.
