Upstander Programming aims develop a culture of looking out for one other on campus. It takes our motto "take care of yourself, take care of each other, take care of this place" and creates a call to action. Upstander Programming is rooted in Bystander Training programs, which are specifically focused to educate people to be proactive and reactive in helping others in areas of sexual violence.
Through training programs, educational videos, and awareness weeks, our office seeks to develop a campus community where students and staff are equipped with skills to intervene in any situation that may negatively impact the Western community.
Examples of being an upstander could include:
We ask students to remember this call to action: if you See Something, Do Something.
