The Redbird Respect campaign seeks to foster a caring community at Illinois State University built on respect for self, respect for others, and respect of others boundaries.
Health Promotion and Wellness works with many departments and organizations across campus and in the community to help address the complexities around gender-based and sexual violence, relationship abuse, and stalking. This section includes information on initiatives and resources.
Additional information is available from the following campus and local partners:
A bystander is an individual who is present when an event takes place but is not directly involved, this could be you. The majority of violent crimes are committed by an acquaintance or someone the victim knows well. Given these circumstances, it’s important to recognize the role bystanders can have in helping and how your actions can have a huge impact and in some situations, you may have the opportunity to interrupt a harmful situation from happening. Please consider reviewing this bystander resource from the Hollaback Program.
Health Promotion and Wellness partnered with a variety of students, staff, faculty and administrators to create the Redbird Respect video series. This project was funded by an Avon Foundation grant Awarded to Health Promotion and Wellness. Thank you to all who volunteered their time to make these videos possible. And a special thank you to our student Videographer, Stephanie Burns.
