Stand for State
Stand for State is Penn State’s bystander intervention program focusing on sexual and relationship violence, mental health concerns, acts of bias, and risky drinking and drug use. Our goal is to create a campus community where everyone plays a role in watching out for each other because everyone deserves to be safe.
Take Action with the 3Ds:
- Direct: Directly interact with the people involved in the situation, and express that you are concerned.
- Distract: Distract the people involved by diverting their attention to something else and use the distraction to covertly defuse the situation.
- Delegate: Delegate your responsibility to intervene in a concerning situation by notifying someone who is better equipped to handle that particular situation. If you ever feel unsafe, always delegate.
