Green Dot

Link to Green Dot webpage

A coalition of departments, offices, and community members at BGSU have partnered with the national initiative The Green Dot Strategy to address sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and stalking through bystander education and intervention. The Green Dot strategy aims to shift campus culture and increase proactive preventative behavior by targeting influential members from across a community with basic education, skill practice, and reactive interventions to high-risk situations. Every choice to be proactive as a bystander is categorized as a “new behavior” and thus a “Green Dot.” Individual decisions (green dots) group together to create larger change.
