University to Host Conference on Queer Youth

The 2014 Carolina Conference on Queer Youth "Building Support and Envisioning Justice for LGBTQ Youth in their Schools and Communities" will be from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Friday, Oct. 17, in the Student Union. The conference is free for those who sign up online and the entire community is invited to attend.

In its second year, the Carolina Conference on Queer Youth is a partnership between the UNC Charlotte Multicultural Resource Center (MRC), Time Out Youth and the Charlotte Lesbian and Gay Fund. Its purpose is to bring together K-12 teachers, school counselors, middle/high school students, college students, community practitioners and activists to discuss a wide range of topics centered on queer youth identity. Conference organizers will also discuss ways to support queer youth in Southern school and community settings.

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.
