New Course Launch: Bystander Intervention: What Would You Do? 

Bystander Intervention: What Would You Do? 

The Bystander Intervention course focuses on students developing the awareness, skills, and courage needed to intervene in a situation when another individual needs help. Our program helps students identify a situation where they might not be directly involved but they recognize a potentially harmful situation and step in to positively change the outcome.  The course objective is to teach students to safely respond to situations where they may help others who are in an unhealthy or  hurtful situation.

Bystander intervention allows individuals to send powerful messages about what is acceptable and expected behavior in our community, on campuses whether  in a group or individual situation.
