Bystander Intervention Program: Bringing in the Bystander

Bystander intervention is considered one of the most promising prevention strategies as it engages the entire community and challenges social norms, rape myths and enlists men as allies. BSU trained approximately 20 staff members as facilitators for the ‘Bringing in the Bystander Program’. This interactive training is availa-ble to any interested group of community members and are continually being conducted. 

For more information regarding this program, please contact the Sexual Violence Advocacy and Support Center.

Alcohol Education

According to research, most sexual assaults occur when the victim/survivor is incapacitated due to alcohol.  Sexual assault is never the fault of the victims/survivors, regardless of whether they were using drugs or alcohol (voluntarily or against their will).  Use of alcohol or drugs by perpetrators does not excuse their actions.
