Dukes Step Up!
Have you ever been concerned about a situation and wanted to help... but didn't?
You're not alone.
This situation is more common than you think and is known as the bystander effect.
Dukes Step Up! is a bystander intervention program that educates students about a safe, early, and effective way to be proactive in helping others.
The goals of Dukes Step Up! are to:
Raise awareness of helping behaviors
Increase motivation to help
Learn strategies for effective helping
Develop confidence when responding to problems or concerns
Ensure the safety and well-being of self and others
