Online Training: All new students, including undergraduate, graduate, law , and non-matriculated students, are required to complete the Voices for Change online course as an element of new student orientation. This program communicates our expectations, policies, and resources related to sexual misconduct. Additionally, it provides incoming students an opportunity to examine the importance of their role as a bystander in realistically preventing incidents of sexual misconduct.
More information about the Voices for Change program and completion requirements are available on the Wellness and Health Promotion website.

Bystander Intervention Training: Seattle University uses the Step UP! Bystander Intervention program, which was created by a team of national leading experts. Step UP! is a prosocial behavior and bystander intervention program that educates students to be proactive in helping others. Teaching people about the determinants of prosocial behavior makes them more aware of why they sometimes don’t help. As a result, they are more likely to help in the future.
One Love: Seattle U works with our national partners at the One Love Foundation to address relationship violence on campus. Empowering students to foster healthy relationships.
Health and Wellness Crew (HAWC): Students in HAWC are certified peer health educators who host educational programs on campus and are available for private individual consultations.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM): April each year is SAAM and we take this opportunity to support survivors of sexual violence in our community, educate ourselves, and take an honest look at the work still to be done on campus. Previously we’ve hosted film screenings, community forms, etc.
Take Back the Night: An annual event at SU and around the country to raise awareness of sexual violence, educate, and promote its prevention. This event features a march around campus and a survivor speak out.
Clothesline Project: This awareness program makes visible the presence of violence in our community in a way that cannot be ignored. Annually, these t-shirts are hung on a clothesline around campus and at Take Back the Night.
