KEEPING THE PARTY SAFE SINCE 2012

By engaging students in comprehensive training programs and offering free professional sober-monitoring services to campus organizations, Cayuga's Watchers aims to progress social norms at Cornell by emphasizing safe and responsible drinking.

Goals

Cayuga’s Watchers is a student-led 501(c)(3) independent organization designed to mitigate the harms associated with high-risk drinking while promoting student safety at Cornell University.

We aim to become an established national model for combating high-risk drinking by promoting peer social responsibility at Cornell University.

SERVICES

Cayuga's Watchers provides free event supervision and bystander intervention education. Our student employees are trained (and paid!) to operate anonymously and non-confrontationally to keep social events running smoothly and event-goers safe. Below is a more detailed explanation of the procedures for a typical event.


BEFORE

A student group on campus requests Cayuga's Watchers for a social event, and we put together the best team we have.

DURING

The team of 4-6 Watchers arrives at the event 15 minutes early to meet with the host and exchange contact information. Watchers then socialize with party-goers, using their training to engage in a non-confrontational manner if necessary.

AFTER

The Watchers and host will fill out post-event feedback forms so that we can continue to improve our service. Information is of course strictly confidential.
