Inquiry 2014 Reflection from Justin Radanovic '14
04.09.14 |
Justin Radanovic is a senior criminal justice major from Churchville, Md. He reflects on his project, "Reducing Power Based Personal Violence: What Role Does Gender Play?", in the following:

My independent study research was conducted with the Green Dot initiative, which allows bystanders to step up and stop violence on campus and the community. "No one has to do everything but we can all do something"; this is the motto behind the Green Dot program. Through this program I have learned more about the reality of violence in the world but most importantly I have learned how not only I but everyone can end violence situations.

The research I have conducted was made possible by an Arnold Grant for Experiential Education, generously donated by Ed and Jeanne Arnold, has provided me an opportunity of a lifetime here at LVC (Justin is pictured at right with the Arnolds). This research has placed LVC ahead of many colleges in the nation by allowing myself and my colleagues the chance to start a new program and gather results in a real world statistical fashion. On top of that, I have also attended and presented the Eastern Sociological Society conference in Baltimore. I was questioned by not only students but leading sociologists in the region about the progress and future of the Green Dot program here at LVC. The Green Dot program has come a long way for only being started three semesters ago and it is still improving each semester. This study has changed my views of LVC and the world we live in and has shown me that with the help of dedicated staff and students we can make a difference not only on LVC campus but the rest of the world.

I now have the opportunity to present the data to the campus on Inquiry and show those who have donated funds and volunteered for the study that it truly is a great cause. Being a senior, I know it is important for the upcoming underclassmen to align themselves with opportunities and I hope this is one that will flourish into a campus wide event. In May my research on the Green Dot program as an undergraduate will be concluded, however my work as an alumnus will just begin and I will always carry this research as a great success in my life. I hope to read about the success of the Green Dot program from other students in the future.
