UHC staff will present ten programs in the residence halls on bystander intervention in August and September, seven programs on sexual health in September and October, and six programs on stress management in November and December. More programs will be scheduled for the spring semester. Participants will be awarded a certificate and coupon card for discounts on university products and services upon the completion of three of the annual six programs offered.
Program 1: WatchDawgs
Goals of the WatchDawgs bystander intervention training
Why Does Bystander Intervention Matter?
The bystander effect is a phenomenon in which the more people who witness an emergency event, the less likely anyone is to intervene. BUT, silence and passivity are not okay. They encourage attitudes and behaviors that promote and normalize sexual violence. Join the UGA community as we promote a campus where violence—in any form—is not tolerated and where doing nothing is no longer an option.
Programs begin at 6 p.m. and are 90 minutes long
