The Green Dot College Strategy
Preventing gender-based violence through a comprehensive bystander intervention approach
In response to the UW-Madison Sexual Assault Climate Survey Task Force Report recommendations following the AAU Campus Climate survey, UW-Madison’s first-year violence prevention education efforts are a multi-dose prevention strategy. After completing the online Tonight program, first-year and transfer students will attend an in-person educational session with options in: healthy sexuality, healthy relationships, supporting survivors, or bystander intervention. The Green Dot curriculum will serve as the bystander intervention option to supplement Tonight.
