Student Groups

Bystander Intervention Training (BIT) program
BIT is an interactive, student-facilitated training that aims to engage everyone in preventing gender violence on the JHU Homewood campus. Bystander Intervention Training helps students identify situations of concern, and provides knowledge and tools to encourage safe and successful interventions. Adapted from a curriculum developed at the University of New Hampshire and Duke Univeristy, the goal of the program is to reduce the incidence of sexual and relationship violence on campus by training particpants to intervene in safe and creative ways, rather than standing aside as a passive bystander.If you would like to schedule a BIT program for your student group, please contact
