DBI is a prevention strategy focusing on leadership and bystander intervention to mobilize our community to prevent stalking, harassment, dating/domestic violence and sexual assault. DBI helps students, faculty and staff understand our role in preventing violence and how to take proactive steps to build a safer community.
The Dartmouth Bystander Initiative is rooted in the firm belief that:
DBI aims to empower all of us, as a community, to realize that potential. To that end, DBI helps Dartmouth community members build a skillset to take action when facing potential moments of harm and create proactive moments of actions to keep everyone safe. Program attendees will learn to recognize concerning behaviors, identify personal and social barriers that make it difficult to intervene, work with others to form intervention strategies that accommodate various scenarios and individual strengths, and walk away with proactive ways to build a safer community.
Whatever role you can play in keeping Dartmouth safe, DBI is here to help you discover it!
