NSU Student Well-Ness Webinar Series: Taking the Bite Out of COVID-19

NSU Student Affairs introduces the NSU Student CARE Team, a multidisciplinary team designed to provide support for students’ well-being and academic success by connecting students in need with campus and community resources. The team serves to supplement existing campus processes such as student conduct, access to student counseling, residential life responses, and other traditional means of supporting students by ensuring that the “dots are connected” to better understand a referred student’s experience. By partnering with members of the community the NSU CARE Team strives to promote individual wellbeing and success while prioritizing community safety.

The NSU Student CARE Team will hold the first webinar series for the month of June called The Student Wellbeing Series: Taking a Bite Out of COVID-19

Teal Tuesday Tablings in the UC

Every Tuesday in April, NSU students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to wear teal in solidarity with survivors of sexual violence.

Whether you own a teal tie, teal socks, a teal bracelet, or a teal ribbon, add a pop of teal to your wardrobe for a good cause. Those who drop by a table will be gifted with teal ribbons to wear throughout the month, and will have the chance to win prizes and other awareness gear.

Representatives from various campus and community resources will also be present to share information about relevant resources offered in support of those affected by sexual violence and those seeking to prevent it in our community.

NSU AAUW Branch Host “E-STEAM Project for Girls”

Pic 4

On January 16, 2019, the students from the Pace Center for Girls participated in their fourth session in the “E-STEAM Project for Girls”. This was a particularly exciting session as the girls visited the Marine Environmental Education Center (MEEC) and the NSU Oceanographic Campus. In the morning, they met with Meghan McGlone, MEEC Program Coordinator, who taught the girls about the sea turtle’s nesting behaviors, how to recognize their track patterns in the sand, and how the hatchlings find the ocean. The girls enjoyed a hands-on activity with a large shiny shell from a giant turtle. Winifred Verna, AAUW student chapter vice president, was also in attendance.

Dr. Maureen McDermott (AAUW/FCE) took the girls downstairs to the pool to see a presentation with MEEC’s permanent resident Captain, a green sea turtle who dives with the assistance of weight therapy.  Captain captivated everyone when eating a lettuce lunch, first above the water and then swimming down to eat lettuce leaves anchored in a device on the pool’s floor.

After visiting the MEEC, AAUW member and Halmos College Director of Academic Support and Administration, Melissa Dore, Ed.D., took them around the Oceanographic Campus, where they examined a manatee’s skeleton and toured a lab with non-living coral. After visiting the outdoor coral nursery, they worked inside with MS student Dayna Hunn on sorting her small, but fascinating, crabs. It was a day they will truly never forget!

Undergraduate Students at the School of Criminal Justice Participate In Mock Murder Trial

IMG_0539 (2)

Undergraduate students in the Introduction to Criminal Justice class at NSU’s School of Criminal Justice participated in a semester long exercise, culminating in a successful Mock Murder Trial.  The course is taught by Assistant Professor, Grace Telesco, Ph.D.

The trial was conducted in NSU’s Shepard Broad College of Law courtroom, on November 27th. Michael Dutko, a current student in the criminal justice Ph.D., who is a Criminal Defense Attorney, played the role of the presiding judge, making the experience that much more realistic and valuable.

The students worked diligently on the case, from the investigation to the closing arguments, and did an amazing job.  Many of the students described how valuable the experience was in showcasing a potential career in criminal justice.

To learn more about Dr. Telesco and the School of Criminal Justice, please visit the website: https://education.nova.edu/faculty/telesco-grace.html
