How to get involved

There are many ways to get involved, both on and off campus.  You can focus your effort on the individual, relationship, community, and societal levels - allowing you to take action in a variety of ways!

Be an active bystander

Choose to take action when you see behavior that puts others at risk for violence, victimization, or perpetration. These include speaking out against rape myths, supporting victim/survivors, and intervening in potentially violent situations.
