Get Involved

There are several ways for members of the university community to help prevent sexual assault.

Learn how to effectively intervene

Taylor Health  and Wellness Center offers “Step UP!” Training – a prosocial behavior and bystander intervention program that educates students to be proactive in helping others.

Teaching people about the determinants of prosocial behavior makes them more aware of why they sometimes don’t help. As a result they are more likely to help in the future.

The goals of “Step UP!” are to:

  • Raise awareness of helping behaviors;
  • Increase motivation to help;
  • Develop skills and confidence when responding to problems or concerns; and
  • Ensure the safety and well-being of self and others.
