Kalamazoo College's swimming & diving meet on Saturday, Jan. 27 will help raise awareness for Green Dot on campus.
Green Dot is a bystander intervention program that uses both reactive behaviors and proactive strategies to reduce the occurrence and prevent power-based personal violence on campus. Head Coach Jay Daniels was one of approximately 30 faculty and staff that attended a four day Green Dot workshop on campus last spring. Looking forward to Saturday's event, he commented, "I"m honored to be a part of the first Green Dot athletic event at the College. Green Dot is a movement that can make all campuses safe places. I hope that this event sparks interest and awareness for anyone that wants to make their community a better place."
The Hornets host Calvin College in an MIAA dual swim meet with events scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Those in attendance will be able to witness a full slate of individual heats, intense relays, and precision diving between the Hornets and rival Knights. Both teams will be looking to fine tune for the for the MIAA Championship scheduled to be held in Grand Rapids next month.
Several other Green Dot events will take place this term including action events, overview talks, and student bystander training. To learn more about Green Dot at Kalamazoo College please visit https://reason.kzoo.edu/greendot/.
