Bystander Intervention 

It's on us

We all have a part to play in the fight against sexual and relationship violence. It's on us--ALL of us--at Arkansas Tech University to commit to creating a culture of respect where violence is not tolerated by our community. It's important, and it's on us. Click here for a list of upcoming trainings and workshops available or contact Stacy Galbo, Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Educational Outreach and Training (sgalbo2@atu.edu), to schedule an active bystander workshop for your class or RSO.

What is bystander intervention?

 

Bystander Intervention is deciding to step up and do something when you see concerning behavior that has potential to harm others. Taking action and preventing or interrupting dangerous activity doesn’t have to be hard.

It could be as simple as:

 

Bystander intervention 101

  1. NOTICE something is not right
     
  2. IDENTIFY that someone needs help
      
  3. DECIDE TO ACT, and develop an intervention strategy
      
  4. INTERVENE SAFELY, either alone or with others

Again, it doesn’t have to be a confrontational act. Just watch Snack Man…
