Cocoa, Cookies, and Conversation on Campus Sexual Violence

Hi Psychological Sciences Department,

My name is Leslie Weber, and I am a member of the Healthy Relationships/Sexual Aggression branch of W&M Health Outreach Peer Educators (HOPE). 

HOPE is currently planning an event on Tuesday, December 5th from 6:30-8pm in Tidewater B that will be a community conversation about campus sexual violence. We are imagining the event to be comprised of multiple small group discussions about a variety of topics related to campus sexual violence (Media/Politics and Sexual Misconduct; Climate Survey Data; Title IX; Student Organizations; and Systems of Oppression and Sexual Violence). 

We would greatly value having the voices in the Psychological Sciences department represented in this conversation. It would be great if you could pass along this information to your department (Facebook event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/396700340749405/ )! Additionally, if there are any topics you would hope to see discussed during this event, please let us know. We look forward to seeing you and members of your department on December 5!

 
Parks Research Lab Upcoming Events

The Parks Research Lab at William & Mary connects community members, park practitioners, and researchers to advance research that examines the impact of public spaces on public health, both physical and mental. With our Campus Park Rx projects, we encourage students at William and Mary to get outside in parks and green spaces to benefit their mental health, as exposure to nature is proven to decrease stress, anxiety, and depression.

This semester we have some upcoming events to get students outdoors around campus on the attached PDF! For more information or to get involved, feel free to reach out to Dorothy Ibes at dcibes@wm.edu and visit our Facebook page for up to date locations and times of events!

Internships provide many benefits to students such as college credits, extra spending money, and  most importantly valuable work experience.
