Change It Up! © Bystander Intervention

February 20, 2023, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EST

Change It Up!© brings bystander intervention skills to students for the purpose of building supportive and respectful communities. Change It Up! is based on a nationally recognized five-step bystander intervention model that develops students’ skills and confidence when intervening in situations that negatively impact campus climate. This workshop explores how students’ identities and experiences impact their interactions inside and outside of the classroom. Through interactive theater, students apply the five steps to real-life scenarios and have an opportunity to practice and discuss how they can leverage these skills within their campus communities.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain an understanding of what it means to be a bystander and factors that influence intervention
  • Gain multiple strategies to intervene and disrupt harm, such as microaggressions, bias incidents, stereotyping, sexual harassment, etc.
  • Act as an ally and educator, especially when you hold privilege and power and witness harm to those who do not hold privilege and power
  • Learn how to receive and respond to feedback about harm you caused, even if unintentional

This workshop is designed for University of Michigan master’s students, doctoral students, and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact [email protected] to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
