Got Your Back, Jack!
Here at SDSU we value student success and support a commitment to healthy choices. Student Affairs staff and partners maintain efforts to ensure that every student has a chance to live in a culture of respecting, protecting, and supporting each other.
We provide students with educational activities on subjects such as sexual assault prevention, alcohol use, and discrimination or harassment. Examples of student groups who have participated include:
- Student athletes
- Residential life staff
- Greek life
- Incoming first-year students
Piloted in Spring 2018, Student Affairs staff present the NCAA and University of Arizona bystander intervention training: StepUP! This program helps students learn how to begin to discuss difficult situations such as those surrounding alcohol and healthy relationships as well as provides tools to intervene on their own behalf or for someone in need.
For a Quick Review of StepUP! here are the 5 DECISION MAKING STEPS
- Notice the event.
- Interpret the event as a problem — investigate!
- Assume personal responsibility.
- Know how to help.
- Implement the help: Step UP!
