The Lighthouse Program collaborates with campus and community partners to bring this trauma-informed training to campus. The goal of the Lighthouse Advocate Training is to identify and educate LSU faculty and staff on campus who will validate, support and advocate for survivors and students-at-risk of sexual and interpersonal violence. Faculty and staff who complete this training and display the Lighthouse symbol in or around their offices are committed to advocating for survivors and become confidential resources so that no student navigates the process alone. 

The Lighthouse Advocate Training is a full-day training. In the training, participants will learn appropriate helping skills, trauma-informed care strategies and resources available for individuals in need.

Tiger BITes is LSU’s Bystander Intervention Training program designed to empower students to create a safer, more respectful campus culture. Being an active bystander can prevent, impact and reduce high-risk situations in the campus community, including sexual violence, alcohol and drug abuse, mental health issues, harassment, discrimination and hazing. The goal of Tiger BITes is to develop the awareness, skills and courage required to intervene when another individual is at risk. Tiger BITes is designed for students from all backgrounds and teaches individuals how to send powerful messages defining acceptable behavior in the campus-community. Through this interactive training session, students will open the dialogue about risky behaviors and build a unique skillset necessary to intervene and teach other students to do the same, creating a safer, more positive community for all.
