I wanted to make you all aware of a wonderful opportunity: the Mental Health Association of Greensboro is presenting two 90-minute QPR trainings (question, persuade, refer) regarding suicide prevention hosted by the Office of Intercultural Engagement. This is a crash course in recognizing students in crisis and appropriate response. Each training is capable of accommodating about 20 participants.
The first training is for students on, , and the second is for faculty/ staff . Both are housed in the Office of Intercultural Engagement's Multicultural Resource Center (062 EUC, bottom floor by the Meditation Room). I will shortly be sending out a Google Form for surveying interest. Remember these spots are limited: first come, first served.
Please make time in your busy schedules for this program! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org or Porshe, the Assistant Director of the OIE, at email@example.com.

We have added 8 public PCs on the Poe side of the Reading Room. They are visible on the Jackson main floor computer availability map. A reminder - this is only a temporary location for these PCs. The Provost gave us one-time money for public computing and we used some of that money to purchase PCs for the Reading Room Ideathon renovation. We are scattering those PCs around the library now, so that the public can go ahead and use them before that renovation is completed.
