UNCG Still Cares
Friday, Feb. 13
2-4 p.m.
Elliott University Center, Phillips Room
“UNCG Cares” about students! During this 2-hour training for UNCG faculty and staff, participants learn about types of distress for students, recognizing signs of distress, strategies for reaching out to students, active listening skills, effective referral, and the resources available on campus to assist students. By creating an environment of support, students in distress may seek help before issues rise to the crisis level. After completing the training, each participant is given a decal/sticker with the “UNCG Cares” logo to display in his or her office.

UNCG Cares: Our Critical Responders
Friday, Feb. 20
2-3:30 p.m.
Elliott University Center, Phillips Room
This specialized UNCG Cares training is designed for frontline staff and their supervisors. The training will help staff members identify individuals in distress and those who may become a risk, appropriately handle the individual and create a safety plan for themselves and their office. We encourage supervisors to attend this UNCG Cares training with their frontline staff members in order to create the safety plan for their office and to spend one-on-one time with their staff addressing safety concerns.

Disruptive Behavior in the Classroom
Friday, March 6
3–4 p.m.
Elliott University Center, Phillips Room
Students are expected to assist in maintaining a classroom environment that is conducive to learning. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for students to be uncivil and verbally aggressive in the classroom toward faculty and their peers. This behavior is not only disruptive, but if not addressed, could have irreversible consequences on student learning. The Dean of Students Office may have some solutions. Come learn some useful techniques on how to address disruptive behavior in the classroom and share with your peers best practices for dealing with disruptive students.
