Step UP! Bystander Intervention Program
Step UP! is a prosocial behavior and bystander intervention program that educates students to be proactive in helping others. Most problematic behaviors, including hazing, on college campuses involve bystanders. Step UP! training provides a framework explaining the bystander effect, reviews relevant research and teaches skills for intervening successfully using the 5 Decision Making Steps, the 5 Ds and the S.E.E.K. Model (Safe; Early; Effective; Kind). Teaching people about the barriers to helping as well as strategies, skills and the determinants of prosocial behavior makes them more likely to help in the future.
The goals of Step UP! are to:
- Raise awareness of helping behaviors
- Increase motivation to help
- Develop skills and confidence when responding to problems or concerns
- Ensure the safety and well-being of self and others
Love, Mom & Dad: Turning tragedy into progress
These families each suffered unimaginable loss as a result of fraternity hazing. They are here to share their stories and to challenge ALL fraternity/sorority members to take up the fight to end hazing now. If we are not actively part of solving this problem, then we are responsible for its continued persistence. Whether you’ve been hazed, know that hazing is happening on your campus, or even if you’ve hazed one of your members in the past, we must all actively take part in this solving this problem so that no family has to endure this kind of tragedy. Let’s be the generation of fraternity and sorority members who end hazing once and for all.

North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) Town Hall on Hazing
In early 2021, there have been two deaths allegedly related to fraternity hazing activity. Following these, the NIC organized a Town Hall tonight for Interfraternity Council presidents and advisors, fraternity staff and volunteers, and fraternity chapter presidents to discuss these developments and critical steps that every fraternity community should be taking at this time and steps you can take to assist in preventing hazing. This Town Hall included health & safety and risk management experts and parents who have lost their sons to hazing.
TED Talk presentation by Kathleen Wiant, mother of Collin Wiant who died in 2018
The practice of hazing, as a subset of bullying, is a subject few ever hear about unless it results in a death that makes it newsworthy. Kathleen knows this intimately, having lived the nightmare of being awoken to the news of her son's death at college due to hazing. Through sharing her heartbreaking experience, Kathleen brings to light the hidden dynamics of hazing and its deceptively slow build. She shows how the twisting of consent and the use of shame work to keep hazing victims silent, and how it will take courage from authority figures, peers, and family members to help victims avoid the abusive consequences of hazing.
