College-aged women are at a higher risk of becoming victims of sexual violence than at nearly any other time in their lives. According to the Department of Justice, women between the ages of 16 and 24 are victims of sexual assault at a rate that is four times higher than all women. Bringing In the Bystander program emphasizes that everyone has a role to play in ending violence against women on campus. This sexual violence prevention program uses a community of responsibility model to teach bystanders how to intervene safely and effectively in cases of sexual violence before, during, and after incidents with strangers, acquaintances, or friends.
