Become an active bystander!

Register for We Speak We Stand training!

Empowered bystanders create a safer campus by standing up and speaking out when they witness situations that could potentially harm the health and safety of others. 

Intervening with peers can be difficult for a number of reasons and training will provide you with the skills to move from inaction to action and intervene safely and effectively. The training features two distinct and separate tracks:  sexual violence prevention and alcohol education and intervention.

Click here for a preview of bystander intervention skills you will learn in the training, brought to you by Wesleyan students.

WesWell–Education and Support

Happy Spring Semester everyone! I want to remind students that my office is a resource for alcohol and other drug issues on campus.  

I’m interested in speaking with any students who are worried about alcohol or other drug use (their own or their peers’) and anyone seeking information about the effect of substances on the body or mind. I am also happy to meet with students who have questions about the signs of addiction as well as anyone needing support for establishing or maintaining a sober life on Wesleyan’s campus.  

All meetings are private and provided using a nonjudgmental and conversational approach.  Meetings are for the purpose of both education and support. During appointments I use an evidence based set of tools called motivational interviewing to help students evaluate for themselves the pros and cons of their current substance use patterns.  To set an appointment students can email me at pmulready@wesleyan.edu. I am on campus Tuesdays and Thursdays and every other Friday.

TALK and PARTICIPATORY DISCUSSION

Friday, November 3, 1:40PM

Schonberg Studio, 247 Pine Street

Puerto Rico was hit by the worst hurricane in over a century. There is currently a humanitarian crisis. Hurricane María left the entire island without electricity, water, and has taken the homes of thousands of Puerto Ricans. The country is completely devastated. The ecological damage is tremendous, and there is a public health crisis.

Currently:

  • there is no electricity or tap water
  • water is contaminated in the entire island (there is a strong need for water filters)
  • there are outbreaks of: leptospirosis, conjunctivitis, and gastrointestinal disorders
  • around 7,000 additional people are living in shelters post Maria

Danza Orgánica (DO), directed by Marsha Parrilla, is a dance theater company that uses movement to generate awareness around social justice concerns. It’s newest work, MELAZA explores de colonial relationship between Puerto Rico and the United States of America. It has also served as a platform to generate awareness around Hurricane Maria, and raise funds towards grassroots organizations.
