COVID-19 Bystander Intervention Workshop TODAY – 8/28

This is repost of an email by Dean Whaley to students on August 28th.


Dear Students,

This is a reminder that WesWell (Wesleyan’s Health Education Office) will be hosting a COVID-19 Bystander Intervention workshop via Zoom on Friday at 3pm EDT.

Originally developed to teach students how to safely intervene to reduce sexual violence and high-risk drinking, this skill set can be used to address many potential harms.  Our ability to have an in-person semester together on campus during the pandemic will rely on each of us intervening to keep the community healthy and safe.  This virtual workshop will serve as an introduction for those not familiar with bystander intervention or as a refresher for those already using these tools.

Please join the discussion!
