Bystander Intervention

Being an accountable bystander to help maintain the health and safety of the Wake Forest University campus community is very important for all students, faculty, and staff.

Bystander Intervention training is provided to all incoming first year students through Extended Orientation. The training utilizes elements from the Step Up! curriculum, and is one of many initiatives implemented campus-wide to create a culture of social responsibility and caring among Demon Deacons.
