Prevention and Response Programs
Bringing in the Bystander
Bringing in the Bystander is a sexual violence prevention program aimed at increasing awareness of risky behaviors and precursors to sexual victimization, among potential bystanders and third-person witnesses. Bringing in the Bystander aims to increase empathy and awareness of the problems experienced by those victimized by sexual and intimate partner violence.
Bringing in the Bystander uses a community of responsibility model to teach bystanders how to intervene safely and assumes that everyone has a role to play in ending violence. Brining in the Bystander curriculum focuses on all members of the community as potential bystanders or witnesses to risky behaviors related to sexual violence.
It's On Us
It's on Us is a pledge of personal commitment to help keep everyone safe from sexual assault. It's on Us is a pledge not to be a bystander to the problem, but to be part of the solution. It's on Us is a promise to be an active bystander and to change the culture around campus sexual assault. By signing the pledge, students promise:
To RECOGNIZE that non-consensual sex is sexual assault.
To IDENTIFY situations in which sexual assault may occur.
To INTERVENE in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.
To CREATE an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.
Because sex without consent, isn't sex it's rape and it's on all of us to help stop it.
Consent is Sexy
Consent is Sexy is a sexual rights awareness media campaign, targeting students in colleges and universities. Consent is Sexy promotes awareness and the practice of respect, consent and open discussion.
By emphasizing sexual health and emotional well being, Consent is Sexy promotes gender equality and equality in relationships. Consent is Sexy counters relationship abuse, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, date rape, gender discrimination and homophobia.
Sexual Assault Response Teams (SART)
Sexual Assault Response Teams are made up of students, faculty, staff, healthcare professionals, and campus law enforcement to address instances of sexual assault in a trauma-informed way with a survivor-centered approach. These teams will become a part of the campus and consortium-wide initiative. These teams help to guide victims in helping them gain access to all resources available to them.
Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner
Healthy Campus Partner schools will have access to a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner who will consult on this project and provide trauma-informed prevention training to law enforcement and medical staff for the campuses involved. This ensures all victims will get treatment and care from knowledgeable, trained professionals.
Sexual Violence Prevention Presentations
Healthy Campus Partners will be sponsoring 45-90 minute Sexual Violence Prevention Presentations for groups of 5-40 participants. These talks can occur on location and will feature evidence-based programming focusing on: seeking and providing consent, acquiring skills to safely intervene, detecting and deterring intimate partner violence, and creating a culture preventing sexual violence.
