Meet the Green Dot Team

Edward Gibson IV

Edward Gibson IV
Coordinator, Multicultural Student Success

Violence prevention is something I value because I know that there are people every day going through different issues in their life. We should aid people who may encounter these acts of violence, which continues to separate the communities by being an active bystander. Violence does not only affect the victim, but it affects every person around the violence. I am dedicated to preventing violence so those harmful memories are not created.

I am inspired by the mission of Green Dot to help empower the victims and bystanders in helping give them a voice. For far too long we have swept sexual assault and relationship violence under the rug. It’s time to take a stand.

Coordinator of Upperclass & Special Populations, Residential Life

I participate with green dot to foster an environment where people can gain tools that will help break the cycle of violence. In addition, Green Dot is about working with those who may hear words or see behaviors that are seen as normalized, but further oppress members of marginalized groups. Green Dot allows us to challenge these normative behaviors and create an environment that is both equitable and inclusive.

I know people who have survived different types of abuse, not to mention the countless number of students I have worked with who have been affected by some type of violence. Violence has a ripple effect. It doesn’t just affect the survivor, it affects the survivor’s family and friends and the Northwest community. It’s time for a change. Be a better Bearcat, join us and create a Green Dot today!

Even though most of us feel like we have a duty to stand up for what is right, it is often hard to know how to step up and intervene. With Green Dot, I love that you don't have to become a different person to make a difference--you just have to know your resources and understand your own strengths. Everyone can do something to leave their mark and make Northwest safer for the whole community.

Director, Residential Life

As a victim advocate for students who experience sexual violence on our campus, I see the extreme disruption that violence has, how violence changes someone’s life completely, and how difficult it is to get back to ‘normal’.  Green Dot is an excellent method that anyone can use to prevent another human from experiencing sexual violence.  Let’s do this together so I never have to meet with another victim of sexual violence.
