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


How to Prevent & Report Hazing Guide

The healthy rites of passage and team builder guide provided information on university activities that can be used as team-building opportunities as well as alternatives to hazing practices common to the UA.

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.



Research conducted by through the University of Maine and other prevention research has shown that messages from key leaders can be influential in prevention efforts.
