Meet the Bystander Trainers

Bystander Education Trainers teach their peers about the importance of speaking out and standing up to prevent sexual violence from occuring. They are part of a social movement that seeks to create a change in campus culture, and form a community of people who refuse to stand by in the face of violence. Read on to learn more about our team of Bystander Trainers!

Lead Trainers

Caroline Frantz

Caroline Frantz

Caroline is from a suburb of San Francisco and grew up in the Bay Area. She is a senior Psychology (BA) major and double minors in Women's & Gender Studies and Management for Social Impact. Last year Caroline worked on the Boston College Women's Summit and on the Advocacy side of the Women Center's Bystander Intervention Program and is excited to continue that work next year. Outside of the Women's Center, Caroline is a leader for the Kairos program out of the Office of Campus Ministry and is a group leader for BC Bigs, a volunteer program centered around mentoring underserved Boston youth. She loves hiking with her dog, Mexican food, spending time with friends, and doing any outdoor activities. 

 Gracie Kwak

 Gracie Kwak

Gracie is a senior studying Psychology with a minor in Accounting for Finance and Consulting. She grew up in Seoul, Korea, where her family still lives. She is interested in the intersections of gender and culture and is a passionate advocate for those struggling with intimate partner violence. Gracie loves Korean food, midday naps, and doing paint-by-numbers, usually of her dog. When she's not in the Women's Center, you can usually find Gracie working (or working out) at the gym, or on a long, aimless drive.
