“Stories of egregious behavior, violations of every sort, threats – they’re going to happen to you,” said Meg Horton, lecturer in the Department of Biology and Senior Faculty Fellow of Grogan Residential College.
“The UNCG Cares program helps you shape the end of that story – from ‘I wish I had…’ to ‘This is what I did and here’s how the story had a good ending.’”
UNCG Cares is a program presented by the Dean of Students office that teaches faculty and staff how they can recognize and support students who may be in crisis while maintaining their professional role. They learn about campus resources and receive guidance on the best way to approach students about concerns. The program reminds faculty and staff that they are not alone, that there are a wide range of resources available within the university community.
The next UNCG Cares training session will be held Friday, Feb. 15, 2013, from 2-4 p.m. To register, contact Dr. Brett Carter at email@example.com or 334-5514.
