As you may already know, power-based personal violence (sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking) is a prevalent issue on college campuses all around the country. It is very likely that most everyone in our community has either personally experienced this kind of violence or knows someone who has. We want to make sure that our campus is ready to respond, so that is why we will be implementing the Green Dot strategy starting with our faculty and staff.

Participants will leave this one-hour training with a set of concrete strategies to react in the moment, and we will talk about how to set norms in our classrooms and workplaces that violence is not tolerated in the first place.
