University to Host Mass CPR Training

UNC Charlotte will host a mass cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training exercise for students, faculty and staff on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM in the Student Activities Center (SAC). The training is designed to increase the number of people on campus who know how to save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest. Each training session will last for 30 minutes.

This is the second year the University’s Office of Environmental Health & Safety has partnered with Mecklenburg EMS Agency (Medic) to promote a mass CPR training. Last fall, over 250 students, faculty and staff learned hands-only CPR at the event. EH&S hopes to increase that number to 350 or more. Medic personnel will teach participants proper hand placement and how to perform compressions on a CPR manikin. Participants will be able to ask questions and learn the importance of quick action during a cardiac arrest.

Gallery to Display Works by Local Printmaker

"Passages," an exhibit featuring work from local printmaker Adrian Rhodes, will be displayed through Tuesday, Oct. 21, in the Student Union Art Gallery. A free reception with the artist will be from 5:00 - 7:00 PM, Thursday, Sept. 25.

Artwork in the exhibit explores internal conflict as reflected in the tension between rigid structural forms and organic, intuitive mark making.

"I am interested in studio practice as a way to question-I am interested in the act of making," said Rhodes. "I don’t try to illustrate an idea, rather I let process guide the piece and find meaning in the method used to create it."
