Green Dot Initiative at IRSC
Green Dot is a bystander intervention training program backed by research and used by colleges across the country. The Green Dot strategy educates and empowers students, staff and faculty to create a community where violence is not tolerated and everyone plays a part in creating a culture of respect. A Green Dot is any behavior, choice, word or attitude that promotes safety and communicates an intolerance for sexual assault, dating violence and stalking.
Introduced to IRSC in the Fall of 2021 held in partnership with the Sexual Assault Assistance Program (SAAP) of the Treasure Coast, the Green Dot program is a proactive way to help promote the safety of all persons on campus.
Student-affiliated groups and organizations may request a Green Dot training that will delve into issues of power-based violence on campus, dynamics of bystander intervention, and proactive ways to step in and support fellow students and acquaintances when situations may become harmful.
