“Be a Leader, Make a Difference,” 12:30 pm, North Café.  The issue of physical and sexual violence on college campuses is an important one. Rather than focusing on the typical roles of victims and perpetrators, this program recognizes that most of us are bystanders to incidents that happen all around us every day. In fact, most problematic behaviors that happen on college campuses involved bystanders – normal people who witness events who have the potential to make a difference. This workshop is designed for students who want to help make our campus stronger and safer. Learn how to recognize an event, decide if you need to act, and accept the responsibility to be a leader and intervene safely to influence positive change.
