Stop The Hate

Train the Trainer Program

“Since becoming a trainer with the Stop The Hate Train the Trainer Program, I have found that the knowledge and expertise I’ve gained have not only benefited me in my role on campus, but also have benefited other regional campuses throughout the Northwest. This program has been one of the most important pieces of training for me in my thirty years in higher education.” -Michael Henthorne, Director, OSU Memorial Union, Oregon State University

Program Overview

Addressing the issue of hate crimes on campus requires participation of all members of the campus community. The Stop The Hate Program allows top administrators, student affairs professionals, faculty and students to learn new innovative tools to take action on hate crimes and bias-motivated violence issues on his/her campus and region. Over a period of three days and approximately 18-20 hours of training time, each participant becomes skilled on 12 different training modules to implement in combination or as separate workshops/seminars, as follows:

* Module 1: Framework for Learning
* Module 2: Introducing Bias & Hate Crime Issues
* Module 3: Understanding Hate Crime Law
* Module 4: Reporting and Documenting Hate Incidents & Hate Crimes
* Module 5: The Impact of Hate Crime & Victim Support
* Module 6: The Attraction of Hate
* Module 7: Young Hate Crime Offenders and Offender Motivations
* Module 8: Preventing Hate Incidents and Hate Crimes
* Module 9: Trainer Workshop Basics
* Module 10: Evaluation of Workshop
* Module 11: Change-Breakers
* Module 12: Action Plan to Combat Hate

Key expert leaders from the partnering human rights and hate crime agencies conduct the training in groups of 20-50 depending on contract details. These experts are selected to maximize the participants’ ability to impact his/her college campus as an educator on hate crime prevention. Throughout the next year, the participants commit to be a part of the Stop The Hate consortium of educators to combat hate on campus and implement an action plan consisting of a minimum of six hate crime prevention efforts that might include workshops, seminars, rallies, writing articles, developing campus response teams, etc.

How do I plan the Train the Trainer for my campus or region?

Program Details & Costs

Stop The Hate has created a planning process that enables individual campuses and, or community organizations to either host or purchase the Stop The Hate training program on a campus or region in the United States. The impetus for this offering is to deliver the training to regional areas and to allow for more individuals (including students, faculty and staff) to attend the training.  We offer programs for groups of 20 to 50 participants.  For more information about hosting or purchasing a program for your campus, please contact Greg Miraglia, Stop The Hate Program Coordinator at 704-277-6710.
