Hoos Got Your Back (HGYB) is UVA’s bystander intervention program. HGYB empowers community members to look out for one another by doing something when a situation doesn’t look or feel right. By being active bystanders, we collectively help to prevent harm and to create a community of care at UVA.
Over 2 out of 3 UVA students surveyed intervened when they were concerned sexual harm may occur*
*From the March 2021 Spring Health Survey with responses from 607 UVA undergraduates. Collected by UVA Student Health and Wellness.
