New Student Orientation

Get Inclusive Required Bystander Intervention Training 


Who is Required to Complete "Get Inclusive" Training?  All ACC first-time college students and transfer students are required to complete this online training.  

What is this Training For? Standing up and looking out for one another’s safety is a core value we all share as members of Alvin Community College.  One way in which we commit to this value is by making sure that we intervene when we observe anyone whose safety is being threatened, being harassed or is in danger of sexual assault or violence. We hold ourselves to a high standard of never being silent and never being passive bystanders. 

What does it mean to be an active bystander who intervenes in the time of need? Where do I find help if necessary? How do I intervene without taking on risks? These are the questions you will receive answers to in a free, 20 minute online training module provided by our training partner,  Get Inclusive.

How to Start?  Look for an invitation email from Get Inclusive and click on the link provided in the email OR access the training through your course list in MyBlackboard.  Use your official ACC student email address for log in to the training; training will be available several weeks after the semester has started.  All responses to quizzes and questionnaires in the course are kept 100% confidential.
