Undergraduate Trainings

Step Up Step In BU

Step up Step in BU (SUSIBU) is BU’s primary sexual violence prevention program. SUSIBU is an interactive training that raises awareness about the prevalence of sexual assault and what we as members of the BU community can do to prevent it.

By the end of SUSIBU, we hope participants will feel empowered to identify themselves as pro-social bystanders who have a role in safely intervening in situations that may lead to a harmful outcome such as sexual assault.

Step Up Step In BU 2 (SUSIBU2) is a one-hour follow-up program for students who have already attended Step Up Step In BU (SUSIBU). In SUSIBU2, students discuss the obstacles of intervening in difficult situations, and brainstorm realistic options for how to intervene.
