Bystander Program Adoption & Efficacy to Reduce SV-IPV in College Community

Because the 2013 Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act1 (SaVE) now requires bystander training for all publicly funded colleges and universities (hereafter colleges), a “natural experiment” presents itself as the opportunity to determine relative bystander training efficacy across multiple colleges. This research seeks to determine the promise of bystander interventions for college communities as mandated by SaVE and provide capacity to grow and support VAW researchers into the future.
