An active bystander speaks up or does something when an incident that is harmful or potentially harmful is witnessed.
If you witness an inappropriate event,
DON’T STAY QUIET ABOUT IT. Step up and do something!
If you see something, do something. When a threat may be present, active bystanders should intervene if a person is in need of medical assistance, mental health counseling or any other form of assistance. It is important to intervene early before a situation escalates. To keep a safe and healthy culture on campus, everyone must do their part to intervene as active bystanders.
