Spring 2020 Sessions
Mon, Feb 17, 2020 from 2:00p to 3:00p | MBSC Omaha Room | Improve Safety and Minimize Liability While Hosting Youth on Campus
This training provides information about why keeping kids safe during your event is important, ways to think through specific situations, and pathways to reach out for help or ask questions. In Nebraska, everyone is a mandatory reporter, so even if you aren’t planning to host an event with kids on campus, it is relevant information to have as a citizen. Refreshments provided to attendees. Please RSVP on Engage here.
(CANCELED) Thu, Mar 19, 2020 from 12:00p to 1:30p | PKI 250 | Suicide Prevention R.E.A.C.H Training
Suicide and suicidal behaviors are major concerns for colleges and universities. Suicide is a leading cause of death among college and university students in the United States. The most powerful strategy to help combat suicide risk in college is to create a campus culture where suicide prevention is a shared campus responsibility and all members of the campus community work together to create a culture of caring and support. We believe that through REACH Gatekeeper training we can reduce the stigma of mental illness, particularly surrounding suicide and depression. Refreshments provided to attendees.
(CANCELED) Mon, Apr 13, 2020 from 3:00p to 4:00p | MBSC Omaha Room | Student Organizations and Hazing
It is a fact. Hazing doesn't just exist in fraternities and sororities, it can happen in a variety of places. Come learn about hazing and what you as advisor needs to know. Refreshments provided to attendees.
