Green Dot

 

What is Green Dot?

Green Dot is a bystander intervention program that asks everyone to take action against power-based personal violence.  The term "green dot" refers to a single moment in time when someone makes the choice to use their words, actions, or behaviors to make our campus and community safer.  Green Dots can be proactive (learning about campus resources, attending a Green Dot training) or reactive (responding to a potentially high-risk situation.)

"No one has to do everything, but everyone has to do something. What's your Green Dot?"

Green Dot is a national violence prevention strategy that views all community members as potential bystanders and seeks to engage them in proactive behaviors that establish intolerance of violence as the norm, as well as reactive interventions in high-risk situations- resulting in the ultimate reduction of violence.  Green Dot is based on the research of the diffusion of innovation and social diffusion theories, the bystander literature, and marketing/rebranding research.
