I Got Your Back University of Idaho Safety Week Logo


Katy Benoit Safety Forum & Campus Safety Week featuring “I Got Your Back” campaign

September 16-20, 2013

In an effort to promote campus safety and in loving memory of Katy Benoit, the University of Idaho will host the second-annual Campus Safety Week and Katy Benoit Safety Forum September 16-20, 3013.  

The Katy Benoit Safety Forum will be followed by several safety oriented events around campus in the days that follow, along with a campus-wide focus on the “I Got Your Back Campaign” that promotes Vandals taking care of each other.  There have been several amazing and inspiring examples on our campus of the courage that it takes to step up in a difficult situation to take care of friends, classmates, teammates and fellow Vandals. We hope to empower all of our students with the confidence and motivation to continue looking out for each other.

The “I Got Your Back” theme focuses on bystander intervention and pro-social behavior modeled after the “Step Up!” Program created by the NCAA and the University of Arizona.  On this campus, we recognize the unique role that students can play in campus health and safety, and the health and safety of their peers, and we want to support their efforts with additional training and resources.
