Welcome to the Bystander Intervention Program
Welcome to the Bystander Intervention Program on Hawk Sync! Whether you are here to learn more about our program, events, future trainings, how to apply, or are looking to get involved, we are excited that you have stopped by and look forward to sharing with you ways to take action on our campus!
The mission of the Bystander Intervention Program is to empower Red Hawks to act both individually and collectively; to increase awareness of methods and campus resources to help you intervene; and encourage responsibility to take action.
How Does Bystander Intervention Work?
How You Can Help:
Bystander Intervention Sessions are scheduled for the following dates:
A “bystander” is a friend, classmate, teammate, coworker, teacher, family member, or stranger who is aware of or observes situations and interactions that could lead to physical or psychological harm or damage to property. At Montclair State University, the safety of the campus is a number one priority. Bystander Intervention is acting, either directly or indirectly, to prevent the situation or to keep it from escalating. The goal of the MSU Bystander Intervention Program is to educate the campus about situations that may require Bystander Intervention, increase feelings of responsibility to take action, and empower people to act both individually and collectively.
