A big part of the PEACC mission is to work to endinterpersonal violence by providing our campus community with the tools to make that happen. One way we do that is through bystander intervention, an evidence-based strategy that asks all of us, as bystanders, to act. PEACC is part of a U of L Green Dot team that provides training to faculty, staff and students. During these conversations, you will learn how to recognize warning signs of interpersonal violence and what you can do to safely act in those moments despite obstacles we all face.
There are many ways we can proactively act to prevent violence from happening in the first place. If you are a student, you can
- Follow @uoflpeacc on social media
- Attend a Green Dot training or/and bring a Green Dot presentation to your class or student group
- Invite PEACC to talk with your RSO, class, or student group about how to help a friend who discloses
- Write a paper on interpersonal violence or bystander intervention strategies to learn more
- Host or/and attend a PEACC outreach events
If you are faculty or staff, you can
- Attend a Green Dot training or/and bring a Green Dot presentation to your class or department
- Take the Faculty or Staff Trauma Informed Care online workshop
- Have a PEACC Beautiful People book displayed in your office
- Offer assignments about interpersonal violence
- Offer extra credit to students who participate in a PEACC event
