New Required Training from Get Inclusive

Please read the email below that was sent to all students from the Office of Student Affairs on October 20, 2022 about the new requirement for all degree seeking first year students from Get Inclusive. This requirement includes Running Start students and students returning after taking time away. Any emails you receive from Get Inclusive are correct and please take the time to read through them.

This is a new requirement going forward from the Department of Justice who we are under and all incoming students must complete the training before December 16, 2022. Since this is the first time we are sending out these trainings through Get Inclusive not Bellevue College, we might encounter some technical issues or errors. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this new training platform and we plan to keep updating Get Inclusive as we receive feedback.

You can read more about the requirement and how to access below:

Dear students,

My name is Val Tovar (she/hers) and oversee gender-based violence prevention education at Bellevue College which operates under the Office for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. I write to you today because of students just like you, who have voiced their concerns about sexual and domestic violence, sexual harassment, and stalking on campus. In 2019, Bellevue College was awarded the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) Campus Grant from the Department of Justice. There were many amazing staff and faculty members who championed this grant award because of their passion to stop sexual violence on campus. The grant funding supports the development of trauma-informed and holistic prevention curriculum and education to reduce harm, investigate, and respond to domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking (DVSAS) in order to minimize re-traumatizing survivors.   

In 2021, despite being in a global pandemic, Bellevue College was awarded the Campus Program Grant once more and we will continue to implement prevention education programming as we return to campus. Prevention education will adapt to virtual, hybrid, and in person over time as we updated based on campus needs. We strive to be a community of care who intervenes when something is not right and provides resources to those who need it.  One way that we can be a community of care is by learning and growing together.  

The Get Inclusive learning modules you will be receiving were chosen by the Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT)  and they are called Voices for Change (VFC). These modules cover topics around consent, sexual assault prevention, bystander intervention, alcohol and other drugs, and diversity & inclusion. Starting Fall Quarter 2022, all degree seeking first year students are required to complete the Get Inclusive modules are called Voices for Change (VFC).   

How to Complete the Training:  

You will receive an email from our training partner, Get Inclusive, in the next few days.  Simply follow the link in that email to begin the training.  The training module is self-paced and will take around 20-30 minutes to complete. This training is mandatory for all degree seeking first year students for Fall Quarter must complete the training by December 16, 2022. Reminder emails will be sent by Get Inclusive and each month.  

To discuss the requirement, whether it applies to you, or any concerns please email For technical support, please contact  

As we continue to move forward, I look forward to meeting you on campus! I want to encourage you to keep educating yourself at BC around these topics because these modules should be a starting point not the end of your prevention education journey.   

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and participation in this important training.
