WITH US is seeking a sample of public and private colleges and universities to participate in our national study on college student bystander behavior.
Participating campuses will gain a deeper understanding of student bystander attitudes, motivations, and barriers to helping across four focus areas:
(1) Sexual assault, sexual harassment, and intimate partner violence
(2) Hate, bias and discrimination
(4) Alcohol & Other Drug Misuse
Participating campuses will receive detailed reports based on data from their surveyed students to help answer these research questions:
Comprehensive analysis of your institution's bystander climate within your local campus context.
Representative data of your undergraduate student population and the bystander situations they encounter.
Knowledge of context-specific bystander barriers that can inform campus policy and prevention programming.

Early bird discount of $500 off (for either option) available before July 1, 2021
Random sample of 5,000 undergraduate students at 60 sites (4-year public and private colleges and universities) across the U.S.
The goal of this study is to gain a clearer understanding of why students fail to act in bystander situations that warrant intervention, and with this information develop evidence and context-based programs to empower students to be Upstanders.
College campuses are expected reduce and mitigate these preventable harms in their communities, and research suggests that student bystanders (witnesses) can play a key role in acting as first responders to help their peers and shift campus culture.
A national sample of campuses are being contacted to participate and up to 60 campuses will be selected for this year's survey.
Participating campuses will provide a primary point of contact for the survey and a senior level administrator - only these contacts will receive the campus-specific survey reports and data summaries. Our center will only use the data in aggregate form for further research and publications.
