Webinar - Restoring Your Resiliency (BC 1hr + 20 Wellness Your Way pts)
This presentation is designed as a follow-up to the Prerequisite 1-hr seminar, “Gaining Resilience, Optimism and Confidence”. It’s easy to conclude that a person with a higher internal resiliency handles stress better, faces and copes with trials and tribulations better, and has less fear/more confidence about the future. While no one would argue that resilience is an essential trait to possess, most of us don’t know how to increase our level of resilience. This webinar is geared toward the “flip side of the coin” of your resiliency. In other words, what life experiences or elements in your life are impeding or hindering your resiliency? When you can identify those, you can take practical steps to resolve them, and thereby restore your innate resiliency. Participants will engage in exercises to evaluate these hindrances, and develop a strategy to continue the journey of becoming more resilient, including personal action steps for each participant. (Sandra Bishop) This webinar series is encouraged for all full and part-time faculty and staff. This two-part series is worth 40 Wellness Your Way points (20 points-part 1, 20 points-part 2) for full-time, benefits eligible employees participating in the Wellness your Way program.

Universities are required to publish an annual report every year by October 1st containing three years’ worth of campus crime statistics, as well as certain security policy statements, including, but not limited to, policies regarding sexual assault, the law enforcement authority of campus police, and where students should go to report crimes. You, and members of your office/department have been identified as Campus Security Authorities (CSA). If you meet one of the following criteria, you are likely a CSA: 1) duties include security responsibilities on campus; 2) duties include serving as someone people are required to report crime to; 3) campus official with significant responsibility for student and campus activities (ex: student housing, student groups, etc.). If you are made aware of a crime that has occurred on campus, on public property adjacent to campus, or on property owned or controlled by the university, you are obligated to report it to Kent State University Police Services. Reports should be made in a timely manner, and include as much information as possible about the nature and location of the crime. This webinar is ideal for all Kent State faculty and staff.
