There are plenty of things students, teachers and faculty can do to stop violence at their schools.

Here are just a few ideas:

  1. Believe that rape, dating violence and stalking are unacceptable and say it out loud.
  2. Understand all people can be victims regardless of sex, gender identity, culture, social class, religion, and/or ability.
  3. Find ways to help others join in activities on campus rather than excluding them from participating.
  4. Use social media to talk about ways to prevent violence.
  5. Talk to your friends and colleagues about violence prevention and ask them to do their part. Offer concrete ways they can contribute.
  6. Organize a training for campus groups and include the warning signs of perpetration and victimization and learn how to safely respond when you see them.
  7. Be a knowledgeable resource for survivors.
  8. Post a list of resources by the computers in your resource center area so students can research websites about violence prevention.
  9. Look out for friends at parties and other high-risk situations. Be an active bystander.
  10. Learn how to intervene safely in potentially high-risk situations.
  11. Explore prevention websites for teens and young adults. For example, Love is Respect.
  12. Include books/articles about violence prevention in your reading assignments.
  13. Write a paper on violence prevention.
  14. Let students know you are a safe person to confide in.
  15. Ask local advocacy service providers to present at your next faculty in-service workshop.
  16. Work with campus administration to ensure strong violence prevention and response policies are in place and evaluate their effectiveness on an annual basis.
  17. Organize a fundraiser for your local advocacy center.
