You are invited to attend the Bringing in the Bystander Certification workshop happening on Saturday February 15 beginning at 9AM in the MUB Alumni Lounge A & B. Lunch will be provided. Students receive a certificate of achievement for completing the workshop, along with t-shirts and stickers! If you have any allergies or dietary restrictions, please send them to Kaylee Kapatos at kkapatos@mtu.edu. This FREE workshop is limited to a total of 50 students. Sign up before you lose your spot! Click here to get your tickets.

What is Bringing in the Bystander?

Bringing in the Bystander (BIB) is an interactive evidence based peer to peer workshop program that gives students the tools and practice needed to intervene as bystanders and to change social norming around relationship violence and sexual assault. This program helps bystanders to understand the decision making process to help them to consider their options when intervening and to build empathy for victims/survivors of relationship and sexual violence. Students leave this program with a certification of completion that they can put on their resume and swag to show their peers that they have completed BIB. 

Workshop Schedule

9:00 AM – 11:45 AM  – Session 1

Session One gives students a foundational understanding of bystander intervention and gives students the opportunity to learn more about how bystanders can intervene through case studies. Students identify ways that bystanders could have intervened. Peer facilitators explain statistics of relationship and sexual violence and discuss myths and assumptions surrounding violence. Much of the discussion in Session 1 focuses on how Michigan Tech students can change the culture around holding others accountable to prevent violence.

11:45 AM – 1:00 PM – Lunch

1:00 PM – 3:00 PM – Session 2

Session 2 focuses on understanding consent, building empathy for survivors and practicing bystanding skills. This session focuses on the decision making process and how to decide when and how to intervene when you see something. This session also gives students an understanding of how to be supportive if someone discloses an experience of relationship or sexual violence to them.

Please share this with anyone you think may be interested. We hope to see you there!


Library Hosts Strategic Planning Discussion Groups

After receiving a tremendous response to our library strategic plan survey, the library is hosting several discussion groups. The purpose of these sessions is to discuss the gaps identified in our plan and ask for your help in setting priorities.

What is Bringing in the Bystander?

Bringing in the Bystander (BIB) is an interactive evidence based peer to peer workshop program that gives students the tools and practice needed to intervene as bystanders and to change social norming around relationship violence and sexual assault. This program helps bystanders to understand the decision making process to help them to consider their options when intervening and to build empathy for victims/survivors of relationship and sexual violence. Students leave this program with a certification of completion that they can put on their resume and swag to show their peers that they have completed BIB. 

Workshop Schedule

9:00 AM – 11:45 AM  – Session 1

Session One gives students a foundational understanding of bystander intervention and gives students the opportunity to learn more about how bystanders can intervene through case studies. Students identify ways that bystanders could have intervened. Peer facilitators explain statistics of relationship and sexual violence and discuss myths and assumptions surrounding violence. Much of the discussion in Session 1 focuses on how Michigan Tech students can change the culture around holding others accountable to prevent violence.

11:45 AM – 1:00 PM – Lunch

1:00 PM – 3:00 PM – Session 2

Session 2 focuses on understanding consent, building empathy for survivors and practicing bystanding skills. This session focuses on the decision making process and how to decide when and how to intervene when you see something. This session also gives students an understanding of how to be supportive if someone discloses an experience of relationship or sexual violence to them.

Please share this with anyone you think may be interested. We hope to see you there!
