BYSTANDER INTERVENTION TRAINING 

If you claim more than $1,000 in a semester from any source of CSG funding, whether it is all at one time or split between multiple claims, you must complete the Bystander Intervention Training that we offer. At least two authorized signers from your organization must complete it. If you only have one, your sole authorized signer must complete it.

Our Bystander Intervention Training is a fully online, asynchronous training that is broken up into different parts. You can start and stop the training and the course will save your progress. We developed this especially for you in partnership with the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC). 
 

How to access the training

  • Visit centralstudentgov.talentlms.com.

  • Sign up for an account.

    • We recommend using your U-M email address, either manually or by using your U-M Google account to sign up.

    • We recommend setting your username to be your uniqname.

    • Be sure to list every student organization and project grant number for which you are an authorized signer. You may abbreviate your organization name if necessary. Remember that your project grant starts with a letter U or letter C and is then six digits. It is not the same as your shortcode. If you don't put the right project grant number(s), there may be delays in getting your funding.

  • Find the training course (it is currently the only course available in this system) and enroll yourself in the course.

  • Complete the course.

    • Be sure to click to fully complete the course and receive a certificate. You do not need to save the certificate if you don’t want to; just make sure you see it as that means you successfully completed the trainings and are now on our “completed” list.

  • If you received notice that we need you to complete BIT before we can release your funding, please then add a comment to your open ticket(s) if it is a SOFC award, or email csg.studentorgs@umich.edu if it is a WCG award. If you haven’t been told you need to complete BIT yet, you don’t need to do anything, as we will check for you when we process your award. 

 

We are constantly working to make our services better, and this training is not an exception. We plan to make it even more robust in the future, and include lots of other useful information that you might need as a student organization leader, based on conversations with key student organization leaders on campus. We know the training is not perfect right now, but we hope you find it to be useful in your work. We welcome your feedback at any time, either in the designated questionnaire in the training or any other time, so we can make this training even more useful for you. 
 

Need technical assistance?

We would be happy to help you if you need technical assistance. We can help with problems registering, password resets, error messages, and lots more. Just email us at csg.studentorgs@umich.edu with a description of the problem and we will assist you as quickly as possible.

Important: If you got your money before you completed the training

If you received funding before the training was ready, and do not complete the training by the end of that semester, we may take enforcement action against your organization, including but not limited to restrictions on receiving money in the future. For organizations who received funding in fall 2021, your deadline to complete the training is Monday, December 20, 2021.

 

If you believe you have a good reason why you need to receive your money before you complete the training, please email the Director at csg.studentorgs@umich.edu with an explanation.

Other information

We are collecting this information and enforcing this requirement under the Director of the Student Organization Committee's authority under the CSG Compiled Code (Article VII, Section A, Subsection 4). You can view more information about our various requirements at this page.

We have a limited number of spots under our license with the vendor, so we may deactivate your account after you complete the training if we need to free up a spot. We will still have you on our “completed” list, and if you want to come back and access the training again, we can always re-activate you if you ask.

If you have any remaining questions or concerns after you review our policies linked above, please email csg.studentorgs@umich.edu.
