Land Acknowledgment

Syracuse University Libraries would like to acknowledge with respect the Onondaga Nation, firekeepers of the Haudenosaunee, the indigenous peoples on whose ancestral lands Syracuse University now stands.

Being an Effective Bystander

"To safely intervene and care for your community members is what it means to be Orange. " 

The Barnes Center at the Arch offers these strategies to consider if you observe or witness various situations where intervention may be needed. 

Additional resources at Syracuse University:

Peer Educators are undergraduate students that provide health and wellness education to their peers through interactive programs, tabling and other outreach events. Peer Educators are role models and liaisons that connect their peers to health and wellness resources on and off-campus. There are three Peer Education teams that specialize in different wellness topics. These include substance use, sexuality and relationships, and mental health.

Getting Help!

STOP Bias and Hate

STOP Bias and Hate is a collaborative campus effort that began in 2010 to raise awareness about bias and promote a culture of respect and inclusivity. It provides the campus community with resources to help those who have been impacted by bias-related incidents on and around campus. Here you will be able to find information about bias and avenues for support and reporting, connect to opportunities for education and dialogue, and get involved with other community members to support the University’s efforts in creating a safer and more welcoming environment for everyone.
