National Campaign to End Violence Returns to FSU With Week of Events
03/27/2014

Frostburg State University will participate in “Enough Is Enough,” the national campaign to end violence from Monday, March 31, through Friday, April 4. Each day will have a different theme. Events, workshops and information will be offered throughout.

Monday is kick-off day, starting with the “No More Violence in My Life” introduction workshop. Students, faculty and staff are welcome to join us for an introduction to the full violence prevention workshop. The workshop will be held in the Cordts Physical Education Center Hall of Fame from 7 to 9 p.m.

On Tuesday, April 1, join the women of NCNW in taking action about violence against women in Lane University Center Room 111.

The Black Student Alliance will host motivational speaker Darryl “Doc” Scriven in examining “The Love Commitment” by exploring problems and solutions for commitment in relationships on Wednesday, April 2, at 7 p.m. in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall in the Lane Center. This event is in conjunction with the annual “Black Love Dinner.” There is limited admission and sign-up in the BSA Office in Lane Center 225 is required.

On Thursday, April 3, in Lane Center 111 at 7 p.m., Residence Life Office staff member Brian Medina will present “Speak-Out,” a workshop to examine intervention strategies.

The week will culminate on Friday, April 4, with the annual Martin Luther King Celebration in the Atkinson Room (232) of the Lane Center at 4:30 p.m. The theme is “Living a Life of Purpose; Leaving a Legacy for Life.” This will be a celebration of the lives and legacies of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (worldwide) and Bernard Wynder (local). All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to join in the celebration of these two men who were committed to living a life promoting peace, social justice and service.

There will be information tables and activities in the Lane Center upper lobby every day between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. In addition to the Diversity Center, BSA, BTGLASS, BURG and NCNW will host a table with a different theme or focus each day. Student organizations, faculty and staff are invited to submit to the Diversity Center any program, activity, classroom assignments/discussion or events they are holding that support the EIE mission.

The “Enough Is Enough” campaign was initiated by NASPA (Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education) President Diana Doyle in response to the call by the former vice president for student affairs at Virginia Tech, Zenobia Lawrence Hike, to take action after the shootings on the Virginia Tech campus. The campaign recognizes that parents, students and community partners are critical allies who will further propel its initiatives to end campus and school shootings.
