    Lebanon Valley College Celebrates Graduating Green Dot Ambassadors

    Lebanon Valley College recognized 49 members of the Class of 2018 as Green Dot ambassadors for their commitment to campus violence prevention.

    Local students include:

    • Briana Chudley of Shillington, a graduate of Governor Mifflin High School, received a bachelor of science in early childhood education and special education from The Valley.
    • Angela Fleig of Reading, a graduate of Reading Senior High School, received a bachelor of science in psychology and sociology from The Valley.

    The students received green pins to wear on their commencement gowns in honor of their commitment to the Green Dot program, which encourages community members to take ownership of campus safety.

    Each of the ambassadors completed Green Dot’s Bystander Intervention Training where participants learn about factors that contribute to inactive bystander behaviors, the red flags of power-based personal violence, and safe and effective means to end incidents of violence. They also learn how to engage in shifting the cultural norms that have historically allowed these forms of violence to exist in the community.

    Green Dot Ambassadors have taken a pledge to do something to end violence and spread the message that “No one has to do everything… Everyone has to do something”.

    Since its launch during the 2013-14 academic year, more than 40 students, faculty and staff have completed Green Dot’s Bystander Training. Learn more on our website.
