Ways you can help a student who shares that they have experienced sexual harassment, sexual assualt, and/or relationship violence.

How to Help a Student

If you see something, say something.

Positive bystanders are individuals who witness emergencies or situations that could lead to criminal events and choose to intervene and prevent the situation from escalating.

The bystander approach to sexual violence prevention puts the responsibility of stopping sexual violence on the community, rather than on the victim-survivor.

Sexual Misconduct and Relationship Violence Reporting Form

Faculty and staff members — If information regarding an incident of sexual misconduct or relationship violence is shared with you, you are required to complete the Sexual Misconduct and Relationship Violence Reporting Form within 24 hours of receiving the report.

 
If you have questions, please contact Barbara Martin, the Title IX Coordinator at 570.577.1554 or barbara.martin@bucknell.edu
