The Step Up! program is a bystander intervention training to help students learn strategies and techniques to intervene directly and indirectly in emergency and non-emergency situations. Students encounter a wide-range of issues including academic integrity, alcohol abuse, anger, depression, discrimination, gambling, hazing, relationship abuse and sexual assault. Simply understanding bystander intervention makes you more likely to intervene and prevent problems from occurring.
Step Up! is a national movement. Colleges and universities across the nation are adopting the program. At Hampden-Sydney there are eleven faculty and staff on the training team.
