Bystander Intervention


Step Up Wildcats! is our evidence based bystander intervention program, where we teach students that they have the ability to stop a problematic situation and help another person out. This program identifies barriers to helping, addresses value based decisions, names the steps needed in order to Step Up, and then lists the ways in which students can choose to help. During the training, we also provide common scenarios that students may run into, to help empower them and make them feel confident in how they would approach different situations.

This program is offered to all students, and many student leaders across campus have already been trained!
