Green Dot to host student workshop

Carson Kleinman

Green Dot will be holding a Student Success Series workshop on Thursday, Sept. 24 from 2-3 p.m. in Room 319 at the Kent State Student Center.

This workshop will be available to all students to learn more about Green Dot and all that it has to offer to the university.

Green Dot uses a bystander approach, fueled by peer influence, to help prevent power-based personal violence on campus.

“It’s not some huge thing, it’s the little choices we make,” said Cassandra Pegg-Kirby, assistant director at the Women’s Center. “Doing something or doing nothing are both choices and both have consequences.”

This workshop trains students in awareness, education and skill practices used to establish the intolerance of violence. Green Dot trains students on how to intervene during high-risk situations, resulting in the reduction of the amount of violence on campus.
