Interpersonal Violence (IPV) is a public health epidemic and safety threat to college campuses nationwide. It doesn’t have to be this way at Oregon State University. We each have a role in creating a safe and caring community that is free from IPV because Beavers Give a Dam™
A Divider would share their concerns and reasons for intervening, because you are being a friend and acting in their best interest.
Example: “Hey, I am worried about you and this situation is making me uncomfortable. Can I walk you home?”
Make a plan and verbalize it…“I’ll do A, you do B.”
Example: “I am going to ask if Sam wants to go grab food. Do you want to see if Jordan is ready to go home?”
Divert the attention of one person away from the other. Commit a party foul if you need to!
