Green Dot Bystander Intervention at UNE

The Green Dot Bystander Initiative is a nationally recognized bystander awareness and intervention program that is demonstrating success at reducing violence in communities. It challenges communities to try new approaches to changing campus culture to help stop power-based personal violence on college campuses and many other communities.

A Green Dot is any behavior, choice, or action that promotes safety and communicates intolerance for violence — your individual choice at any given moment to make our campus safer. It is a training and programming strategy that provides tools for community members to be effective bystanders in an effort to help prevent gender violence.

The University of New England is excited to implement Green Dot on our campuses and provide opportunities for students, faculty, and professional staff to become empowered bystanders.
