Get Up, Stand Up! Be a Courageous Bystander
Independence West 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 woman passed out drunk in a room at a house party, then a man goes in and closes 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 behaviors, statements, or attitudes. This interactive program helps participants learn ways to be a courageous bystander and possibly save someone from victimization and trauma. Presented by Sexual Offense Support (S.O.S.).
Mon, November 17th, 6:00-8:00pm
European Standards for Sex Education from the World Health Organization
Speaker: Olaf Kapella, Austrian Institute for Family Studies, University of Vienna
STAR Campus, 540 S. College Ave.
Over the past few decades, there have been many developments that highlight the need for sexuality education including: the proliferation of social media, the global spread of HIV/AIDS, increasing concerns about the sexual abuse of children and adolescents, and changing attitudes toward sexuality & sexual behavior of youth, and the globalization and migration of people with different cultural & religious backgrounds. In the face of it, Europe is not leaving young people alone to deal with misinformation, stereotypes and myths about sex. Learn about the World Health Organization's standards for sex education in Europe. Sponsored by the Delaware Division of Public Health and many UD offices and departments. See the flyer.
