Campus Portal - Bystander Intervention

Bystander Intervention

     Bystander intervention is one of the most promising pathways for change. The US Office of Violence Against Women now requires it as a component of all grant activity on campuses. It is a method focused on social norms change--so that instead of standing by, feeling uncomfortable, frustrated, or powerless, participants are given the tools to be 'upstanders'--to intervene nonviolently to deescalate the situation in direct or indirect ways, in any act of personal violence.
