Empowered bystanders create a safer campus by standing up and speaking out when they witness situations that could potentially harm the health and safety of others.

Intervening with peers can be difficult for a number of reasons and

training will provide you with the skills to

move from inaction to action

and intervene safely and effectively.

The training features two distinct and separate tracks:
