Prosocial Bystander

You see someone being bullied, hurt or in a potentially dangerous situation.

What do you do?

Be a prosocial bystander! See something, say something.

Here at Gateway, we care about our students, staff and visitors. We want an environment that is a safe and welcoming as possible. If you see something that may cause harm or violates the safe and welcoming atmosphere, we encourage you to act.

We’re not saying you need to put yourself in a dangerous situation. It may mean saying something, if you are comfortable doing that. It may mean not participating, or joining in, the demeaning behavior. It might mean contacting a Gateway official about the incident. It might mean filing a report of concerning behavior yourself.

Be a prosocial bystander! If you see something, say something. It’s something that will benefit all of us.
