NU Bystander Intervention

NU Bystander Intervention is an initiative that aims to create a safer, more caring and inclusive community by engaging all students, faculty and staff and asking them to play a role in shifting our campus culture.

Bystander intervention is a type of training that was developed to help people identity and interrupt moments of harm or potential harm. While initially implemented around topics of sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking on college campuses, the training has been broadened to think about how people observing a situation can take an active role in intervening to stop immediate harm, and ideally future harm, from happening.
