We Speak We Stand – Wesleyan’s Bystander Intervention Program

We are having our next campus-wide training November 3rd, 7:00-10:00pm in 41 Wyllys room 112.

Become an active bystander by registering for Wesleyan’s bystander intervention training! Empowered bystanders make the campus community safer by standing up and speaking out when they witness situations that could potentially harm the health and safety of others. Intervening with peers can be difficult for a number of reasons and training will provide you with the skills to move from inaction to action and intervene safely and effectively.

The training features two distinct and separate tracks: sexual violence prevention and alcohol use intervention.

Register here by October 31st: https://docs.google.com/a/wesleyan.edu/forms/d/1W5qwZTGtalI9_zgOgc9R1rilBJa6GVV9wYKuDVKDCDA/viewform

Dinner included!

When – Tuesday, October 21st for any movie showing throughout the day from first show to last (you are welcome to see more than one movie!)

Where – Metro Movies on Main Street in Middletown

How – Just show your Wesleyan ID at the ticket counter

The College of Letters is a three-year, interdisciplinary major for the study of European literature, history, and philosophy, from antiquity to the present. During these three years, students participate as a cohort in a series of colloquia in which they read and discuss works together (in English), learn to think critically about texts in relation to their contexts and influences—both European and non-European—and in relation to the disciplines that shape and are shaped by those texts. Majors also become proficient in a foreign language and study abroad in order to deepen their knowledge of another culture. The COL, a unique college within the University, has its own library and workspace where students can attend lectures, study together, and meet informally with their professors, whose offices surround the library.

We will hold an open house for prospective majors on Monday, October 13 at 4:30 in the COL Library at 41 Wyllis.
