Bystander Intervention Course

Bystander Intervention Course

IncludeU is a program developed by faculty for faculty based on research on how best to intervene when a bias incident occurs.  The program is web-based and self-paced and can be completed anytime, any place, and on any device.  

Animated Scenarios depict realistic examples of bias incidents that occur on a daily basis when faculty get together casually or at meetings where they deliberate hiring and promotion and tenure decisions.
