Abstract

I will propose an improved, research-backed plan to better inform students of sexual assault and prevention methods through a mandated University curriculum. This educational programming will center around the notion of Bystander Intervention Training (BIT) which educates the average student on how to appropriately step into risky situations they see on or off-campus that could lead to an assault. By creating an invisible police force of trained students, we can prevent sexual assault on college campuses by empowering those who want to see this changed the most.
