Janet C. Anderson Gender Resource Center

Holt Arena and surroundings

Welcome to the Idaho State University (ISU) Janet C. Anderson Gender Resource Center (GRC). The GRC has been on the ISU campus since 1998. The GRC was created by the ISU Student Senate to honor the very well respected Dean of Student Affairs, Janet C. Anderson who was retiring and whom the center is named after.

The GRC focus is to provide education and programs to students, staff and faculty and to provide a space to explore the ways gender and sexuality impact our lives and our interactions with others and the world we live in.

The GRC strives to develop a supportive and inclusive community that understands the intersections of gender and sexuality with race, ethnicity, class, ability, age, culture, nationality, and immigration status. We promote overcoming suppression of others through education and affirming and honoring people’s identities and life styles. The programming that the GRC offers is to expand knowledge on gender and sexuality and promote healthy relationships and build a strong community of individuals who care and support each other with compassion. We invite you to attend GRC events, including our annual Gender & Sexuality in Everyday Life Conference held in March and our on-going campus wide trainings for Green Dot Bystander Intervention.

What Is Your Green Dot?  Wear Your T-Shirt Event

September 11th – ALL DAY

Idaho State University is proud to be a Green Dot Campus!  Green Dot is a nationally recognized bystander intervention program designed to train members of the ISU community to look out for one another and stop Power based Personal Violence.  Using research, the Green Dot program trains individuals to recognize potential behaviors in someone that may lead to violent action or, use techniques to intervene if they see something happening.  A CDC study in 2015 shows that in a test group of schools where the Green Dot program is active, sexual assault went down by 50%.  A Red Dot is a moment in time when someone chooses to harm someone else.  A Green Dot is a moment in time when we as individuals step up and do something rather than nothing to stop Power based Personal Violence.

If you are Green Dot trained wear your shirt on October 11th to show solidarity in stopping Power based Personal Violence.  Please go to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GDBOOSTER and fill out the survey and come to the Gender resource Center to get you Green Dot backpack.
