Attend a Green Dot Bystander Training

Have you ever been in a situation where you saw something might be wrong, wanted to help out, but didn’t know how?

Interactive and Informative, the Green Dot bystander workshops provide an in-depth understanding about the Green Dot campaign, and include: a comprehensive overview of power-based personal violence (intimate partner violence, sexual violence, stalking, identity-based targeting, and bullying); a conversation about common obstacles preventing people from intervening; an opportunity to explore Green Dot for every personality; and a time for developing Green Dots you can implement in your daily lives.

Making campus safer begins with simple steps and simple actions. Will you join the Green Dot movement to help make Vanderbilt a safer place?

Upcoming Training:

February 21, 2014 | 3:00pm – 9:00pm | Sarratt 189

Sign up online to attend.

Green Dot Awareness Week Activities

We will have Green Dot games, cookies, an opportunity to submit your Green Dot to the online map, and Green Dot swag and information!

This event will be held simultaneously at 3 campus locations: the K.C. Potter Center (Office of LGBTQI Life), the Office of Active Citizenship and Service lounge, and the Office of the University Chaplain and Religious Life. The program is to serve as an open focus group for students to sit and give their opinions and perspective of the Green Dot curriculum as well as its impact on campus culture. We welcome all students regardless of level of involvement with Green Dot in the past. We invite you to sit, enjoy refreshments, and engage in candid conversation about interpersonal violence and campus culture at Vanderbilt. Feel free to stay for the entire time or leave whenever you would like.
