“UNCG Cares” Training

This training for faculty and staff will be Friday, March 30, 2012, from 2-4 p.m. in Bryan 206. Reserve a spot at http://deanofstudents.uncg.edu/uncgcares/

“UNCG Cares” is a national award-winning university-wide program that aims to positively affect retention, increase graduation rates and continue to promote a sense of community and support at UNCG. During the training, participants will learn active listening skills, how to recognize signs of distress, how to proactively reach out to students and offer help, the variety of issues that students face, effective referrals, and the resources available on campus to assist students.

Once a participant has completed the training, he or she will be given a decal/sticker with the “UNCG Cares” logo to display in his or her office. By creating an environment of support, students in distress may get the help they need before issues rise to the crisis level. In addition, faculty and staff will feel more able to assist students with the types of issues with which they are dealing.
