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

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.
