Professional Development Opportunities

Posted on Monday, November 5th, 2018 by staffAdmin under Featured News, General Staff Senate News, Professional and Personal Development.

Run, Hide, Fight

This workshop provides information on surviving an active shooter incident. “Shots Fired!” is the last thing you expect to hear in the workplace or at school. Unfortunately, the possibility of this violent event taking place in your community has become a reality that employees and students have to deal with. Although no one is exempt from this threat, injury or death does not have to be the inevitable outcome.

At the conclusion of this workshop, attendees will recognize the sound of gunfire, demonstrate the three response options, explain when each option should be used, and describe your interaction with law enforcement when they arrive. Open to all staff and faculty.

  • Date: Wednesday, January 23, 2019
  • Time: 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
  • Location: U.N.C.G. Police Building Room 212

Space is limited. Registration required. Please register at the U.N.C.G. Workshops & Events website. Additional dates are also available and listed on the website.

Florence Information on Volunteering and Support

The System Office has established a dedicated web page related to Hurricane Florence which you can view at: The UNC System Office Information Page
The Office of State Human Resources (O.S.H.R.) has increased the number of paid Community Service Leave (C.S.L.) hours from 24 to 40 hours for the remainder of 2018. If you are interested in volunteering, you are encouraged to sign up through the State’s Volunteer Website. Donations towards the larger Hurricane Florence recovery effort can be made through the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund and the American Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund.

Closer to home, the Staff Senate is holding a drive to help restock the shelves of the Spartan Open Pantry (see attached flyer). “Six students and our staff stayed to operate the food pantry for those needing help preparing for hurricane Florence after the university closed at noon. We gave 770 lbs. of food this week! That is more than we gave in the whole month of August!” You can see the need is great. Please find a bin near you. You can also start your own bin. Just let us know and, at the end of the drive, we will make arrangements to pick it up.
