Green Dot Action Week, Oct 14 - 20!

29 Aug 2018

Green Dot at Iowa State aims to decrease power-based personal violence on campus by utilizing education, outreach and development as mechanisms for increasing awareness and competency around bystander intervention skills. Green Dot at Iowa State aspires to:

  • Integrate into all aspects of campus life,
  • Increase faculty and staff support,
  • Demonstrate cultural humility to better serve diverse populations,
  • Implement best practices to enhance programs and initiatives


A green dot symbolizes a single moment in time that can be used to end perpetration or support victims of power-based personal violence.  Through your words, choices and actions in any given moment, you can add a green dot to our map and make a difference. By interrupting a potential incidence of power-based personal violence, or a red dot, you increase community safety for everyone.  If each of us adds 1 or 2 or 5 or 100 green dots, we will reduce the perpetration of violence–one green dot at a time.


Faculty, Staff, Administrators and Graduate Students – you are invited to Green Dot Eats (Monday, October 15th). This is a great opportunity to learn about food insecurity, ask questions of our campus dietitians and leave with an awesome bag of prizes and resources. This is a GREAT opportunity to learn how to support our students and colleagues.


Also, sign up NOW for Green Dot Faculty/Staff Bystander Trainings starting October 18th. Each month we will be hosting a training to learn how to recognize behaviors, address behaviors as active bystanders and be proactive in ending violence in our community.
