An AED is a small, portable device that analyzes the heart’s rhythm and prompts the user to deliver a defibrillation shock if it determines one is needed. Once turned on, the AED guides the user through each step of the defibrillation process by providing voice and/or visual prompts. AEDs are specially designed for easy use by a “first responder”, who would be the first person to typically arrive on the scene of a medical emergency. Attend this training to get an overview of how this device works, where they are located on campus and what you can do in an emergency.
Goals and Target Audience:
Debunk AED myths, provide hands on training and help to reduce or eliminate a lay person's hesitation to act in an emergency.

Campus Security Authorities and the Clery Act

Date:
Tuesday, January 15th 2013
Start Time:
9:00 AM
Session Length:
50 Minutes
Room:
208 LSC
Description:
Even at institutions with a police department on campus, a student who is the victim of a crime may be more inclined to report it to someone other than the campus police. For this reason, the Clery Act requires all institutions to collect crime reports from a variety of individuals and organizations that Clery considers to be campus security authorities. This session will explain the duties of a campus security authority, and what their responsibilites are when a crime is reported to them.
Goals and Target Audience:
The goal of this training is to reach and educate as many campus security authorities as possible about their responsibilities in crime reporting. A Campus security authority (CSA) is a Clery-specific term that encompasses four groups of individuals and organizations associated with an institution. 1. A campus police department or a campus security department of an institution. 2. Any individual or individuals who have responsibility for campus security but who do not constitute a campus police department or a campus security department (e.g., an individual who is responsible for monitoring the entrance into institutional property). 3. Any individual or organization specified in an institution’s statement of campus security policy as an individual or organization to which students and employees should report criminal offenses (e.g., Women and Gender Advocacy Center). 4. An official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student housing, athletics, student discipline and campus judicial proceedings. An official is defined as any person who has the authority and the duty to take action or respond to particular issues on behalf of the institution.

Room:

Description:
Have you witnessed an increase of incivility in your classroom? If so, you are not alone. Because of national discourse regarding safety on college campuses, faculty and staff seem more conscious of disruptive, threatening, and concerning behaviors. Examples include: use of email, list-serves, or Facebook to verbally attack or slander classmates as well as bullying through the intentional isolation of colleagues on team projects. Reactions to students’ differences can lead to class conflict, impacting a student’s ability to learn and an instructor’s ability to teach. Participants will leave this session with strategies and resources to address disruptive student behavior.
Goals and Target Audience:
The goal of this session is to provide participants resources and options to address students who are disruptive in the classroom environment.
