Subject: {Greek Newsletter} Upstander 101


Upstander 101 is the new and improved Bystander 101 training. The change to Upstander is our aim to be more intentional with our language about the expectations for members of our community. The goal of Upstander is to facilitate social change here at Case Western and to create an environment where students can stand up against social issues. At this time we will be placing more emphasis on issues of sexual misconduct with smaller discussions on wellness and substance use.
