The Counseling Center is hosting a national speaker on April 7th at 7:30pm. The speaker is Lorin Phillips from Campuspeaks. She will be addressing students and Staff about risk management issues for students and their student organizations. She will also address campus social norms and how bystander behaviors influence our personal choices. Her presentation will be in the Ferrari room of the Brant Student Center.
Being SU Strong means to step forward when you see something that is suspicious or wrong. This means speaking up when you see someone drinking too much at a party, or making sure your friend gets home safely instead of letting them go with someone who may not have their best interest in mind. If you have that “someone should do something” feeling, being SU Strong means you are that “someone”…not a bystander. The bystander effect is a social psychological phenomenon that refers to cases in which individuals do not offer any means of help to a victim when other people are present. This means if you don’t step up, chances are, no one else will either. The probability of help is inversely related to the number of bystanders. In other words, the greater the number of bystanders, the less likely it is that any one of them will help. Statistically speaking, the bigger the party, the less likely someone will help the victim. Contact the counseling center to find out how you can be SU Strong and change the statistic on our campus.
