IOCP 2022 Menu

The CU Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education (CU CIPE) aims to foster interprofessional collaboration at CU Anschutz and graduate team-ready practitioners with the skills needed to collaborate as a member of an interprofessional team. In this effort, the CU CIPE offers faculty, staff, and students from all academic units, institutes, and programs to engage in the Interprofessional Open Campus Program (IOCP).

Purpose:

To connects students, faculty, and staff members from across the CU Anschutz campus, regardless of professional background, in programing meaningful for the individual and the campus community. The IOCP consists of a menu of program offerings that resonate with the campus community. The College of Nursing, the Schools of Dental Medicine, Medicine, and Pharmacy, and the Anesthesiologist Assistant, Physician Assistant, and Physical Therapy Programs all require their first-year students to participate in the IOCP each fall. Additionally, IOCP offerings aim to be inclusive of all members of the AMC community whenever possible.‚Äč

Objective

Each year, the IOCP identifies a primary theme by which to engage different partners within the Anschutz community. The 2022 theme is “Community, Allyship and Being an Upstander”. Many IOCP activities align with this theme and are identified on the IOCP Menu.

Why this theme?

First, allyship is the process of building relationships, acknowledging privileges, and working with people of different identities to combat discrimination and intolerance, regardless of if you are on the targeted end of it or not. “As an ally, you use your power—no matter how big or small—to support others. You learn, and try, and mess up, and try harder.

Second, people who take action on behalf of others are called upstanders (in opposition to the more commonly used ‘bystander’). By promoting allyship on your campus through student advocacy and collaboration, you can create a community of upstanders on your campus


Office of Equity’s No Longer on Stand-By: Active Bystander Training

Office of Equity

Have you ever been in a conversation when someone said something biased that made you uncomfortable, but you weren’t sure how to respond? Or maybe you witnessed something troubling (some form of harmful behavior like a microaggression) happening to someone else and you weren’t sure how to support that person in the moment? You're not alone in those feelings! Many folks struggle addressing these types of situations. We’d all like to consider ourselves helpful people and we want to do what’s right; however, it can be hard to know how to act in moments where bias shows up. In this training, participants will: (1) learn more about social identities and unconscious bias; (2) learn more about the history, theory, and cognitive/behavioral process of the bystander effect; and (3) learn more about recommended bystander intervention tactics and how to use them as an effective ally. In addition, this training briefly covers mandatory reporting obligations for “responsible employees” outlined in university policy administered by the Office of Equity.
