Raising the Bar at Circ

A program aimed at reducing the amount of “sexual and gender-based violence” faced by the University of Michigan students recently finished training the staff of Circ Bar. Raise the Bar— created in 2016 by the University of Michigan’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center— is a program that hosts interactive workshops to educate staff on recognizing and interfering in incidents of predatory behavior which may lead to sexual assault. Circ is the latest of over 25 bars and transportation services around the University of Michigan area to participate in the free workshops.
