Who is a bystander? Someone is a bystander when he or she notices that something about a situation is wrong and they choose not to say or do anything. The goals of bystander intervention training are to challenge the current understanding about what it means to be a bystander and to encourage people to step up and help when they see the opportunity.
This positive bystander model calls for more than just simply targeting individuals as potential perpetrators or victims, but also changing the culture towards sexual violence on campus.
