Get Up, Stand Up: Be a Courageous Bystander!
7:00pm, Independence East Residence Hall Lounge

Have you ever heard a sexist or homophobic joke and wished you had confronted it? Witnessed someone name-calling or hitting another person? Seen a man leading a heavily intoxicated woman into a room at a party and closing the door? Were you left with the nagging feeling that someone should have intervened...yet getting involved felt too risky? A "Courageous Bystander" is someone who takes an active role in promoting a respectful environment, or who takes action to safely and responsibly interfere with abusive attitudes, statements, or behaviors. This interactive program helps participants learn ways to be a courageous bystander and possibly save someone from victimization and trauma. Presented by UD's Sexual Offense Support (S.O.S.).

If you have experienced sexual assault or intimate partner violence, help is available. Call 831-2226 and ask to be put in touch with an S.O.S. Victim Advocate. The advocate on duty will call you back within 10 minutes. Or Call Student Wellness & Health Promotion at 831-3457 to make an appointment with a professional staff member during business hours.

Sexual Assault Prevention & Education Committee

The Committee is made up of students, student organizations, and faculty & staff from a variety of University offices and departments. The SAPE Committee plans Sexual Assault Awareness Month events in April, as well as other events on campus year-round. The Bystander Intervention theme is intended to encourage and empower University of Delaware students to be active bystanders when you see a situation you identify as bothersome or dangerous. The goal is to teach skills to be able to recognize what sexual assault is, intervene when you hear comments that promote sexual assault, intervene to prevent a potential sexual assault situation, and be able to support your friends who are survivors of sexual violence.

Sincere thanks to all who help to plan and support Sexual Assault Awareness Events throughout the year: Campus & Public Safety, Center for Black Culture, Center for Counseling & Student Development, Department of Women and Gender Studies, Greek Council, Inter-Fraternity Council, Office of Communications and Marketing, Office of the Dean of Students, Office of Equity & Inclusion, Office of Residence Life, Office of Student Conduct, Office of Student Life, Panhellenic Council, Sexual Offense Support, Student Health Service, Student Wellness & Health Promotion, Students Acting for Gender Equality, and University Student Centers.
