What is bystander intervention? Bystander intervention is a straightforward concept that simply means that in any given situation, there are people who may observe what is happening and be in a position to prevent an incident.

  • Actions can be small, like asking a friend to stop making sexist jokes.
  • Actions can be on a larger scale, like organizing an educational program for campus that helps facilitate understanding about sexual assault.
  • It might also mean intervening or getting help if you see a troubling situation among friends or even strangers.
  • StepUP! and intervene when someone around you is in need.

This method allows for students to gain responsibility and leadership experience within their community while engaging their peers and educating the campus at large on many topics surrounding health and wellness.
