Bystander intervention training empowers students to intervene in (and prevent) potentially harmful situations. Stepping in to assist another person that is experiencing harm or abuse is an important part of helping and supporting people in our community. Standing up to de-escalate violence can be difficult but each student at the U plays a valuable role in making our campus a safer place.

The Center for Student Wellness’ training is built on national examples of bystander intervention. It is designed to mobilize students, raise awareness, and provide skills to recognize, intervene, prevent and/or stop inappropriate comments, actions and behaviors – with an emphasis on stopping interpersonal violence, rape, and sexual assault.

To register for our Bystander Intervention Certificate call the office at 801-581-7776 or email wellness@sa.utah.edu.
