• Prevention and Involvement

    Hamline engages prevention & training through various programs, awareness months, training and education, and campus-wide committees to support prevention of sexual misconduct and discrimination based on gender identity and expression.

    We encourage faculty, staff, and students to take the pledge to end sexual violence and join our It’s On Us campaign.

    Take the Pledge 

    Student Involvement

    Students who wants to get involved on campus in ending sexual misconduct, be a supporter, and advocate for social change, check out some of the programs available on campus!

    StepUP! Bystander Program
    We are excited to announce Hamline is moving to StepUP! as our bystander intervention program to educate students about how to be proactive in helping others. Want to learn more about being a bystander and what stops us stepping up in situations where we see something that isn't right? Want to learn some tools and skills to help step up more regularly? Then this training is right for you.

    You might hear folks talking about being a GreenDot campus, we decided to make the transition to StepUP!, because their approach builds on GreenDot while providing us opportunities to think more intersectionally and inclusively in how we respond to concerns and interrupt unwelcomed actions in our community. It also teaches students how to train their peers to be active members of our community.  

    Get involved with StepUP!
