STEP UP! Evaluation Survey

Students that have taken any of our STEP UP! trainings (Bystander Intervention, Mental Well-Being, Safer Drinking, Diversity and Inclusion, or Sexualized Violence Prevention) are added to an email list, refreshing from scratch each July 1.

A few times a semester, the Student Well-Being office will send out an evaluation email asking which trainings you have taken, if you've witnessed any problematic events, and if so, how you did or didn't use skills learned from the trainings. Students can also use this as an opportunity to contact us for a one-on-one consultation to discuss anything related to the skills used or events witnessed.

As a reminder, the five decision-making steps of bystander intervention are:

  1. Notice the event
  2. Interpret the event as a problem
  3. Assume personal responsibility
  4. Know how to help
  5. Implement


There are also four intervention styles to choose from:

  1. Dominance (the shark): The person places emphasis on accomplishing results, the bottom line, and confidence. Behaviors include seeing the big picture, being blunt, accepting challenges, and getting straight to the point.
  2. Influence (the fox): The person places emphasis on influencing or persuading others, openness, and relationships. Behaviors include showing enthusiasm, being optimistic, collaborating, and disliking being ignored.
  3. Steadiness (the teddy bear): The person places emphasis on cooperation, sincerity, and dependability. Behaviors include disliking being rushed, calm manner, calm approach, supportive actions, and humility.
  4. Conscientiousness (the turtle): The person places emphasis on quality, accuracy, expertise, and competency. Behaviors include enjoying independence, objective reasoning, wanting the details, and fearing being wrong.


Don’t fall subject to the diffusion of responsibility.
You may truly believe someone else will do something about the situation, but you can never know for sure.
