Step Up: Student-Led Bystander Intervention Program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Session Description: Step UP! is a prosocial behavior and bystander intervention program that educates students to be proactive in helping others, in a variety of situations. Teaching people about the determinants of prosocial behavior makes them more aware of why they sometimes don’t help. As a result they are more likely to help in the future.The Residence Life Office at the University of Montana has trained 7 full-time staff and 10 student staff to be Step Up! Facilitators. This team of facilitators is currently implementing the Step Up! Program into our educational approach within Residence Life. This will include trainings for students, informational bulletin boards, passive programs, and other educational tools within residence life. Step Up! was originally developed by the University of Arizona and now has 395 partner universities using this educational program, including MSU-Billings.

The goals of Step UP! are to:

  • Raise awareness of helping behaviors
  • Increase motivation to help
  • Develop skills and confidence when responding to problems or concerns
  • Ensure the safety and well-being of self and others
