At Northwest Missouri State, we’re committed to preventing violence. Green Dot is a violence prevention initiative focused on reducing violence, including stalking, sexual assault, and partner violence.

A green dot is any behavior‚ choice‚ word‚ or attitude that sends the message that violence is not okay with you. By doing green dots, you help set the norm that violence is unacceptable and everyone is expected to do their part to keep our community safe.
