Jayhawks Give a Flock

Miss Flock? Sign up for a Make Up Session

As Jayhawks, we work to actively foster unity. It is the responsibility of the entire campus community to prevent sexual violence and intimate partner violence at KU through bystander intervention. We hope this training helps you think about these issues and take appropriate action to ensure the health and well-being of every member of our community.

During Hawk Week, all new students will participate in Jayhawks Give a Flock (also called Flock), KU's bystander intervention program. Based on the curriculum of Bringing in the Bystander®, the program provides participants with skills and tools to identify behavior that puts others at risk for violence, victimization, or perpetration. Students participating in this program will gain with the knowledge and skills to take action when they see behaviors that put others at risk for sexual assault. These skills include intervening in situations where others may be at risk of harm, speaking out against rape myths and sexist language, and supporting survivors of sexual violence.

Frequently Asked Questions

The development of a pro-social bystander intervention culture is imperative in primary prevention work on college campuses. Participants will come to understand that everyone has an important role to play in the intervention and prevention of sexual violence. This program focuses on skills such as understanding appropriate levels of intervention, being mindful of personal safety, and different personal options bystanders have depending on the nature of the situations.
