IC Responsibility: Bystander Intervention Certification Program

By Elyse Nepa, October 25, 2021

In a campus-wide prevention education collaboration, we'd like to introduce you to IC Responsibility: Bystander Intervention Certificate Program at Ithaca College. IC Responsibility will provide you with an opportunity to expand your knowledge about pro-social bystander intervention. The program will advance your knowledge base, skill development, and teach intervention strategies to learn how to recognize and respond to potentially harmful situations. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in programming focused on discrimination, sexual violence, drug and alcohol related emergencies, to name a few. Throughout the program, students will be equipped with knowledge and tangible skills to safely intervene. 

This program was created with the holistic human experience in mind to provide you with an opportunity to understand identities and experiences that impact intervention, self-care, and supporting survivors to advance your knowledge and skill development in pro-social bystander intervention.  

Participants will receive a certificate of completion demonstrating knowledge of pro-social intervention and a variety of marketable skills that allow them to bring positive contributions to any work or educational environment.
