You’re invited to the second ACAA Professional Development session and the first ACAA Business meeting of the year!
Come join representatives from the Office of the Dean of Students, Counseling & Testing Center, and Division of Student Life to learn more about what we as advisors can do to prevent campus shootings.
Wednesday, December 2, 12:00-12:50pm
This session will be followed by an ACAA business meeting from 1:00-1:50 pm.
In response to the recent UCC tragedy, many of us may have already attended the active shooter training that Office of Emergency Management and Continuity is providing to UO faculty and staff. While this training has touched on prevention, its main objective has been to teach survival strategies for such a situation if one were to occur. This ACAA professional development event will focus solely on the prevention piece to explore what advisors can do to recognize students of concern and be clear on correct protocol and support service options, as well as have a conversation about what we can do to provide a more inclusive and supportive environment for students in order to prevent these types of tragedies. Panel participants from the Office of the Dean of Students, Counseling & Testing Center, Division of Student Life, and a possible guest from LCC will provide information about their own services and strategies as well as take questions from the group. It is possible that the conversation may touch on other topics of concern to which our campus community is currently responding, such as racial profiling in the wake of events at Mizzou and even the escalating global refugee crisis.
