Many departments across the College offer a wide variety of workshops that relate to the central tenets of sustainability. Check out some of the workshops currently offered by departments at the College. And be bold! Even if you are more economically or environmentally minded, you should strongly consider some of the more socially focused workshops provided by the College.
Green Dot encourages bystanders (everyone will be one at some point) to make a choice and then take action by doing something to prevent violence from happening in our community. Built on the idea that in order to measurably reduce the instances of power-based personal violence there must be a culture shift, Green Dot capitalizes on peer and cultural influence to encourage change in behaviors from those that sustain violence in our community. Changing culture can seem like a daunting task but it happens all the time.

Student coordinators are available to provide educational workshops and training programs to the campus community. Some workshop topics include "How to Be an Ally," "Transgender 101," and "Straight Privilege." Trained student leaders facilitate the presentations. We work with dorms, teams, student groups, classes, offices and departments.
