Mission

Our mission is to actively promote and encourage the balanced personal, educational and professional development of individuals, engage them in human understanding and civic responsibility with a strong moral and ethical foundation, and assist them in their endeavors to have a positive impact in their community from a local to a global scale.

We are dedicated to the research and development of student services programs promoting psychological, spiritual, intellectual, physical and social well-being, as well as greater intercultural understanding and engagement for institutions of higher education in Asia.

DEI in Asia hopes to provide greater opportunity for Asia to develop its own independent resources and programs to benefit the welfare of its people and encourage positive engagement with others.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Friendship Intervention Program

The Friendship Intervention Program is a relatively low resource intensive program modeled after the “I Am Not a Bystander” Campaign at Stanford University (bystander.stanford.edu) that encourages fellow students to become the first line of intervention to help other students dealing with issues involving their personal safety and well-being, and harmful behavior towards others.

The program provides periodic workshops and basic online training to students and advisors within each department on how to help others in a positive and friendly manner.  The students will be taught basic warning signs of abuse, depression, suicide, eating disorders, self-harm, harmful lifestyle practices, negative behavior towards others, etc.  They will be shown typical scenarios in which these warning signs and behaviors might play out and how to stage a friendly intervention to help the student.  While in many cases, the intervening students may be effective in influencing corrective behavior, in situations where more help is deemed necessary, these students will know how to assist the person in need to seek professional help available through administrators, counselors and other student services programs at the university.

This program will require a coordinated effort between department and student services administrators to develop training, promote awareness, and encourage students to develop a familial responsibility for the well-being of their fellow students by fostering an atmosphere of friendship and caring toward each other.

The program will have the added effect of further educating administrators about the many issues college students face and effective ways to resolve them.  It will also help coordinate resources in a more concerted effort to improve student well-being on China’s university campuses.  It will further encourage the administration to develop further its student services program and open the door for the development of a peer counseling program.

Approximate cost for program development is: $10,500.  Costs incurred will be for:

development of online resources ($2000)

coordination meetings ($500)

training ($700)

workshops ($1200)

material development ($1100)

travel and accommodations ($5000)

Total Program Budget Estimate: $10,500

In order to facilitate program implementation, DEI in Asia is looking to subsidize most or all of the aforementioned program expenses.  The university will be responsible for annual training costs, but DEI in Asia will subsidize workshop expenses taught by outside professionals.

We are hoping to implement this program within several departments at two universities in Beijing in the coming year.  Should the program be deemed successful, we will work with each university to promote the program university-wide to cover both undergraduate and graduate student communities.  The program’s success will also provide a strong platform to launch a peer counseling program at each university.

This program is part of our larger student services program initiative to promote psychological, spiritual, intellectual, physical and social well-being as well as greater intercultural understanding and engagement for institutions of higher education in Asia.
