Our violence and harm prevention work in CSI includes a number of programs.

  • Bears That CARE (BTC) is an active bystander initiative to make our campus safer. Through interactive workshops about bystander intervention, BTC educates and empowers individuals to effectively and safely intervene in potentially harmful or violent situations. We strive to create a community of care.
  • Our staff is comprised of peer educators and staff facilitators. Peer educators provide workshops to student groups across campus and actively promote violence prevention through a variety of programs, while staff facilitators lead workshops for academic and student affairs departments.
  • The Hazing Prevention Collaborative (HPC) is a multidisciplinary group of students and staff who have come together to reduce and prevent hazing in the UC Berkeley community.

All our workshops incorporate bystander intervention and community engagement.
