Respect is Part of Research (RPR)

Respect is Part of Research is a peer-led sexual violence / sexual harassment (SVSH) prevention workshop for incoming graduate students at UC Berkeley. RPR is based on the idea that peer-led training is the most effective way to communicate social norms. By setting expectations about department culture and community early, we hope to mitigate potential climate problems before they rise to the level of SVSH complaints. We also aim to give everyone the tools to communicate about difficult issues and have productive discussions about department climate. Our goal is to create a respectful, positive working environment where everyone can do their best science. Workshops are certified to satisfy the UC Berkeley requirement for in-person SVSH prevention training.
