Stand Up To Bullying

Program Overview:

The University of Minnesota Student-Athlete Development department created the Stand Up to Bullying program in hopes of eliminating bullying incidents in elementary schools across the Twin Cities.

The program educates children on the importance of standing up to bullying and ensuring every child feels safe and comfortable at school. Gopher student-athletes review the four different types of bullying (Physical, Emotional, Verbal and Cyber) while discussing the harmful effects of both one-time incidents and long-term bullying. The interactive visit also includes examples of how to combat bullying without altercation.

Program Objectives:

  • Inform children on the short-term and long-term effects bullying can have on the emotional, mental and physical development
  • Engage children in role-playing activities to demonstrate proper anti-bullying lessons
  • Encourage youth to build self-confidence strategies to stand up to bullying
