Bringing In the Bystander Training

The Montana Tech Rape Prevention Team (RPE) Team is again sponsoring another Bringing in the Bystander Training™ , an evidenced-based sexual assault prevention training.  This free 1.5 hour training is open to all Montana Tech students, faculty and staff as well as community members interested in learning why and how to be an active bystander.  It will occur on November 14 at 3 PM,  in the Kelley-Steward Room of the Montana Tech Student Union Building (SUB). Space is limited so Interested persons are encouraged to RSVP to Cricket Pietsch at cpietsch@mtech.edu (496-3730) or Joyce O’Neill at joneill@mtech.edu (496-4429). 

This training is part of The FRONTSTANDER initiative which encompasses more than helping prevent sexual misconduct.   It is Montana Tech’s movement to encourage speaking up when we see or hear something that does not promote safety, integrity  and well-being. Helping others make the right interpersonal choices,  encouraging academic honesty, as well as  assisting those in need of help due to depression and/or anxiety  are within the realm of being a FRONTSTANDER.  Bringing in the Bystander™ skills can be generalized to many different situations.

Everyone has an important role to play in the intervention and prevention of sexual violence. Be a FRONTSTANDER!
