Stand for State is a University-wide bystander intervention initiative that seeks to create a campus community that helps community members to understand the role we can all play in looking out for each other. The program places a focus on sexual and relationship violence, mental health concerns, acts of bias, and risky drinking and drug use.
What is a “bystander”?
A bystander can be anyone who may be present and has some awareness of harmful or high-risk behavior taking place.
Stand for State teaches participants strategies they can use to safely intervene and/or diffuse situations that could result in harm to another person. Everyone deserves to be safe. We all can play a role in watching out for each other.
