Orientation Curriculum

Online Learning Module

GVEO partners with Vector Solutions to create online programming for our incoming undergraduate (SAPU) and graduate (SAPG) students.  

Both programs feature trainings on consent culture, bystander intervention, and healthy relationships. The trainings strive to empower students with information and skills to mitigate gender violence as they enter Duke University. 

To ensure all incoming students have a foundational understanding of consent and bystander intervention, all incoming students are required to complete the training prior to arriving on campus. If you have any questions or concerns about the requirement or the training content, please contact or for support.

Orientation Curriculum

During Orientation, all projects will be provided with a 30 minute presentation given by GVEO. This presentation will focus on providing students with the foundational skills to create pro-social relationships to mitigate gender violence on campus and provide an understanding of campus resources relative to gender violence. Following each presentation, students in each project will be offered opportunities to engage in small group discussion with Orientation Leaders. 

We know that discussing Gender Violence can be challenging and want to ensure that all students are empowered to receive support. In the event that a student is in need of emotional support, they will be connected with confidential resources.  

Bystander Intervention

Duke University is a Bringing in the Bystander (BITB) partner. BITB is a prevention program based on the concept that all community members have a role to play in ending incivility, harassment, violence, and discrimination. The program helps participants gain the knowledge and skills needed to identify and safely intervene before, during, and after instances of risky behaviors.
