University within the University (U2) lists the following new sessions:
Wellness and You!
Sept. 22, 10 to 11 a.m., Wellness Center classrooms 120 and 121.
The Wellness Center is a place for all UND employees and allows all members to build and live a wellness lifestyle. Join us for a tour of WELLNESS and learn the benefits of creating a healthier you. This session will allow you to learn more about the services and programs available through a Wellness Center membership and will show you how easy it is to create a successful exercise program. You'll also get information about who can use the Wellness Center and steps you can take to help some of your family members and friends sign up for membership also. The Wellness Center doesn’t just want you living a wellness lifestyle, they want others you care about living it too. "Wellness and You" is sure to give you the tools you need to jump start your way into building a healthier you. Presenter: Carrie Strouth.
QPR: Question, Persuade, Refer—Spend an Hour, Save a Life
Sept. 24, 1 to 2:30 p.m., River Valley Room, Memorial Union
QPR stands for question, persuade, and refer —- three simple steps that anyone can learn to help save someone from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. QPR can be learned in our Gatekeeper course in as little as one hour. As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, know how to offer hope, and know how to get help and save a life. Presenters: Jacque Gray and Julii Green, American Indian Support Program. Funded by the Garrett Lee Smith Campus Suicide Prevention Grant.
Safe Zone Ally Training Program
Sept. 25, 2 to 4 p.m., or Sept. 26, 10 a.m. to noon, or Oct. 16, 2 to 4 p.m., or Oct. 24, 10 a.m. to noon. All are in Rooms 10-12, Swanson Hall.
The purpose of Safe Zone is to reduce homophobia and heterosexism on the UND campus, thereby making our campus a safer and freer environment for all members of our community regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Safe Zone prepares members of the campus community, primarily faculty and staff, to serve as resources on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) issues and also strives to educate the campus community about the Safe Zone program. The goal of the Safe Zone Ally Training Program is to provide a welcoming environment for LGBTQ persons by establishing an identifiable network of supportive persons who can provide information and a safe place for the community within our campus. Presenters: Safe Zone committee members.
Sponsored by the Safe Zone Committee, Dean of Students Office, Residence Services, Student Health Services and Student Health Promotion Office, University Counseling Center, Wellness Center, and Women’s Center
