SCOPE Tip of the Week

Bystander Intervention

You have likely heard the phrase “bystander intervention”trending in recent years- on listservs, in research, as part of legislation, at conferences and more. What is it and how can it contribute to a healthy and safe campus?

Bystander intervention is best understood as a philosophical approach, rather than a specific type of program. It’s a meta-process, rather than a content area. It’s about inspiring community members to come together to address a specific behavior that causes injury to peers.

For more on bystander intervention, please view our full Tip of the Week here.
