On November 4th, Green Dot will host another session of the bystander intervention training. The session is designed to create student leaders on campus by educating them on the basics of bystander situations and creating positive leaders in the campus community. Specifically, the site lists seven outcomes expected to be obtained from attendance from the training.
- Learn more about the roles of the bystander.
- Understand the basic elements of culture change and the positive contribution outcomes.
- Recognize behaviors of power-based personal violence.
- Increase skills to safely intervene.
- Recognize barriers that prevent students from intervening.
- Develop realistic solutions to barriers.
- Gain skills to proactively engage others to become part of the solution.
Overall, the Office of Student Conduct recognizes that there are a variety of factors that can come into play for young adults on college campuses when addressing their peers. By training students to be more confident and knowledgeable in uncomfortable situations, we hope that outcomes of many decisions will become more positive across campus, as well as the community.
