New Bystander Intervention Training Policy

All student organizations that intend to claim more than $1,000 next Winter 2017 semester from SOFC must have two of their authorized signers attend a Bystander Intervention training facilitated by SAPAC and Wolverine WellnessThis training requirement must be completed prior to the respective proof of payment submission deadline if your organization is to claim more than $1,000.
 

Take for example Org A and Org B. Org A and Org B have both been awarded $1,500 and have submitted proper proof of payment. Org A has fulfilled the Bystander Intervention training requirement prior to the proof of payment deadline, whereas Org B has not. Org A will receive a claim of $1,500 while Org B’s claim will be limited to $1,000.

 
There are 9 trainings being offered from January to April 2017. For all organizations that know they are likely to claim more than $1,000 from SOFC next semester, we highly recommend completing the training requirement early on to avoid any potential problems.
 
You can register to attend a Bystander Intervention training session through CSG’s Maize Pages using this link. Login to your UM account by clicking “Sign In” on the top-right of the page, navigate back to CSG’s Maize Pages & Event Calendar (re-open the above link), and select a session to RSVP to.
