The School of Public Health has several information sessions scheduled throughout spring quarter – see attached flyer for specific details – for students interested in any of the school’s undergraduate programs.
We need your help to reduce power-based violence on campus! We believe that natural student leaders are in a position to use peer influence to change the world we live in. If you believe that one person experiencing violence is too many, then Green Dot will give you the skills to do something about it.
The next FREE Green Dot Bystander Training for students is on Saturday April 27th, 2013 from 10:00am-4:00pm in Alder Hall, Room 107.
At the training, you will learn specific skills about how to do green dots, how to recognize the warning signs/red dots, examine your personal barriers and gain confidence in your ability to change culture at UW by being an active bystander.

We will have lunch from Chipotle and plenty of snacks.
See you there!
