Green Dot

"A Green Dot is any behavior, choice, word, or attitude that counters or displaces a red dot of violence – by promoting safety for everyone and communicating utter intolerance for sexual violence, interpersonal violence, and stalking."

The Green Dot violence prevention strategy is gaining momentum at Connecticut College.

Don’t Cancel That Class! A program for faculty

Are you a faculty member who's going to be away on a conference? Have you ever been stuck in traffic on 95 and probably going to miss class? Invite the Think S.A.F.E. Project to facilitate your class for you as part of our program - "Don’t Cancel That Class!" The Coordinator will work with you on finalizing a topic and working it into your curriculum whether it relates to sexual assault, dating violence and stalking, or if you would like to introduce Green Dot to your students. For more information, contact Darcie Folsom at x2219 or email
