Redbird Respect seeks to create a caring community at Illinois State University built on respect for yourself, respect for others, and respect of boundaries. Additional information about our interpersonal violence prevention efforts.
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to help someone, but you didn't? You may have experienced the Bystander Effect, a phenomenon that describes how individuals are less likely to help someone in need when others are present.
Bystander training is an interactive, skill-building workshop that empowers participants to help in a variety of situations. The training teaches strategies and techniques to safely intervene either directly or indirectly in both emergency and non-emergency situations. Participants also develop the skills and confidence necessary to safely help others. This workshop can be tailored to address specific situations and offered for student groups as well as faculty/staff. Request a workshop.
In spring 2015, 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.
