It's Your Move, Duke's bystander intervention training initiative, began Fall 2012. This training helps trainees reduce barriers that keep individuals from intervening with problem or concerning behaviors. With a focus on taking action, bystander intervention training helps participants understand what a bystander is, provides options for taking action, and teaches skills for effective interventions. The training addresses a range of potentially harmful situations from medical emergencies to the emotional injury of discrimination. Topic areas covered include: academics and unethical behaviors, disordered eating, depression and other mental illnesses, hazing, sexism/gender violence, homophobia, substance use, sexual health and safety, suicide, and racism.

Additional bystander intervention programs on specific topic areas are available through the following departments:
- Wellness Center - Party Monitor training on Alcohol and Sexual Assault
- Women's Center - PACT training on Gender Violence
- Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity - Ally Training to combat homophobia and heterosexism
