Green Dot is a bystander intervention and violence prevention program designed to reduce power-based personal violence (sexual assault, domestic/dating violence and stalking) on our campus and in our community. The Green Dot program launched on our campus in August 2016 and is coordinated by Jenay Lamy, who works in the Title IX Office. The goal of this inclusive program is to create two new campus norms; (1) Violence is not tolerated on our campus or in our community, and (2) Everyone is expected to do their part in safety and prevention.
This will be achieved through Green Dot presentations, Green Dot Bystander Intervention Trainings, social media engagement and action events. At the Missouri State University Green Dot website, (www.missouristate.edu/greendot), there is information about; registering for a training, requesting a Green Dot presentation for a student organization, group or residence hall floor, nominating someone (including student, faculty or staff) for a Green Dot presentation or training, telling your Green Dot story and learning about local and national resources. From the words of the Green Dot Etc. founder, Dr. Dorothy Edwards, “No one has to do everything. Everyone has to do something. What’s Your Green Dot?”
