Green Dot

Green Dot is a prevention program addressing power-based personal violence (e.g. bullying, sexual assault, domestic, violence, stalking, etc.). Green Dot equips students, faculty and staff to recognize warning signs, develop intervention options, and proactively change cultural norms. The Green Dot program is a first step in a long term, comprehensive primary prevention strategy on campus and within our community. As a nationally recognized program that is supported by rigorous research, the Green Dot program has reduced violence. Please help make our college a Green Dot campus.

Check back with us for a list of upcoming events or look for the Green Dots on campus or email us at for more information.
