Need help urgently from a police officer?
Everyone can make a difference in preventing sexual violence on campus. We encourage you to understand the importance of consent, speak up when you see or hear disrespectful behavior and get involved in sexual violence prevention groups.
We all have a role to play in making UB a safe environment to live, learn, and explore. Being an empowered bystander can help us move from standing by to stepping up. It’s not always easy, but each of us can help in our own way, and we can learn skills to help in safer and more effective ways.
Helping is about five separate decisions:
Help make UB a safer place to live, work, and learn. Take the training to be an empowered bystander or join our nationally-recognized team of student leaders.
Join our Peer Education Course and become a Nationally Certified Health & Wellness Peer Educator.
Request a Bystander Intervention Training for your club, organization, or area, or attend our next scheduled training.
