An Upstander is someone who stands up for what is right, even if they are standing alone.
Upstanders believe in helping others and being inclusive and welcoming to everyone.
What does an Upstander do?
Upstanders have two main jobs on campus.
How do you get help from an Upstander?
- They help solve conflicts between peers, they are the peer mediation group on campus.
- They work to improve the overall culture on campus.
Students who have a conflict with a peer are encouraged to self-refer to a peer mediation. All they need to do is fill out an Upstanders Peer Mediation Request form in the office.
