WE are changing the culture at Auburn University, one green dot at a time.
We at Auburn University are working together to stop sexual violence on our campus. The WE.auburn initiative is part of a nationwide program called the Green Dot Bystander Intervention Program. The Green Dot program focuses on the actions of the bystander: the third party in any circumstance. By mobilizing the bystander to take action and intervene in a potentially dangerous or harmful situation, it is possible to change the outcome of a violent situation. We call these instances “green dots.” The goal of WE.auburn is to establish a community that does not tolerate violence. As a community utilizing the Green Dot strategy, we can make Auburn a safer place for everyone.
