Hofstra Step-Up

Hofstra Step Up! Be a Leader and Make a Difference as Part of the Pride

Hofstra Step Up! is a bystander intervention program that raises awareness of helping behaviors, increases motivation to help, develops skills and confidence when responding to problems or concerns, and ensures the safety and well-being of all members of our community.

During New Student Orientation, all first year and transfer students receive a comprehensive bystander intervention training. They will learn about recognizing a potentially harmful situation, and how they can choose to respond safely and positively to resolve it.
