The Future of Campus Recreation: Time for a Different Administrative Home?  

Microsoft Academic Search

At the beginning of the 20th Century, collegiate campus recreation programs were moved from student controlled entities and placed under the supervision of academic or athletic departments (Milton, 2008a). As such programs grew and became more popular among the general student populations on America's college campuses, administrative oversight was eventually handed to divisions of student affairs, where some research reports

The Recreation Mentoring Program: A Community Engagement Initiative for Children  

PubMed Central

Introduction Approximately one in five Ontario children show symptoms of significant mental health problems. These children exhibit impairments at home, at school and in the community, often with long-lasting effects. Involvement in structured community-based recreation programs may be protective for these children; however, they often encounter multiple barriers to participation (e.g., facility fees, lack of family or peer support, and reluctance to try new activities). Method The Recreation Mentoring Program is a community-wide program that reduces barriers to participation while providing an important relationship with a caring, young adult mentor. Trained volunteer mentors are matched with at-risk children, and meet regularly at a community recreation centre near the child’s residence. The mentor’s role is to: 1) stimulate participation in recreational programs, and 2) promote the child’s continued participation after the mentorship ends. Results Limited program evaluation suggests that the Recreation Mentoring Program engages at-risk children in community-based recreation, that it is operationally feasible, and that it produces high levels of client satisfaction. Conclusion The Recreation Mentoring Program holds promise as an effective community-based intervention for children with mental health problems.

Capabilities and management utility of recreation impact monitoring programs  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A recreation impact monitoring system was developed and applied in 1984 1986 and in 1991 to all backcountry river-accessed campsites within Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Results suggest that actions implemented by park managers in response to problems identified by the initial survey were highly effective in reducing resource degradation caused by camping. In particular, the elimination of some designated campsites and installation of anchored firegrates reduced the total area of disturbance by 50%. Firegrate installation provided a focal point that increased the concentration of camping activities, allowing peripheral areas to recover. As suggested by predictive models, additional resource degradation caused by increased camping intensities is more than offset by improvements in the condition of areas where use is eliminated. The capabilities and management utility of recreation impact monitoring programs, illustrated by the Delaware Water Gap monitoring program, are also presented and discussed.

Video Teleconferencing in the Compounding Laboratory Component of a Dual-Campus Doctor of Pharmacy Program  

PubMed Central

Objectives. To design, implement, and assess the effectiveness of using a live video teleconferencing system to connect the main campus and a satellite campus during laboratory compounding exercises in a doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) program. Design. A new laboratory facility with identical equipment and supplies to the main campus was built at the satellite campus and teleconferencing equipment was set up. Students on both campuses prepared 20 compounded formulations over a 5-course pharmaceutical care laboratory sequence. Live video teleconferencing was used for students to ask questions and for the lead faculty instructor to observe the students’ technique. Faculty and staff members and teaching assistants facilitated the laboratory sessions on both campuses. Assessment. The performance of students on assayed products at the main campus was compared with that of students at the satellite campus to ensure program integrity with the compounding laboratory component. The use of video teleconferencing for teaching compounding was successful and no difference in overall student pass rates was seen. The few observed differences in student performance between the 2 campuses were believed to be a result of variations in instructor communication with distant students. Conclusion. Video teleconferencing can be used successfully to deliver curriculum in laboratory compounding to pharmacy students.

Campus programming for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week: an investigation of stigma, help-seeking, and resource knowledge.  

PubMed

This study investigated the effectiveness of on-campus programming for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAwareness Week). The aim was to investigate the impact of a campus-wide, week-long series of psycho-educational and awareness programs designed for NEDAwareness Week. The study sought to determine whether students who attended programming, when compared to students who had not attended campus programming, would report (a) higher levels of help-seeking behaviors, (b) lower levels of stigma, and (c) greater knowledge of available on-campus resources for students experiencing body image issues and eating disorders. Results indicated that students who attended one-time intervention programs knew more about available on-campus resources for students experiencing body image issues and eating disorders than students who did not attend programming. The findings suggest that students who attended one-time intervention programs for NEDAwareness Week had higher levels of factual knowledge of available campus resources for body image issues and eating disordered behaviors than students who did not attend campus programming for NEDAwareness Week.

A bold adventure in innovation: an international off-campus master's degree program.  

PubMed

In response to the global shortage of nursing faculty, Loma Linda University School of Nursing offered an off-campus master's degree program to prepare nurse educators who would commit to remain in their home countries following graduation. The program was approved by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges to be offered in both English and Spanish. Students and faculty met for 1 month each year for 4 years at one of two international sites: Thailand or Argentina. Forty-five of 49 students completed the program. The cultural diversity in both cohorts enriched classroom discussions, social interaction, and student-faculty conversations. The program was a life-changing experience for all involved and helped to meet the global need for nursing faculty. The faculty reported that it broadened their world view and opened their minds to the potential for innovation to transform nursing education. PMID:20672774

Treatment refusal/attrition among adults randomly assigned to programs at a drug treatment campus: The New Jersey Substance Abuse Treatment Campus, Seacaucus, NJ.  

PubMed

The New Jersey Substance Abuse Treatment Campus was funded to assess the feasibility of establishing a new model for delivering substance abuse treatment services and to serve as a research laboratory for conducting comparative evaluations of those services. The 350-bed campus was designed to improve treatment effectiveness by providing special services needed by underserved populations, and reduce treatment costs by serving large numbers of clients, centralizing services, and sharing facilities. First-time clients who met preliminary eligibility requirements during phone screening were randomly assigned to therapeutic community and chemical dependency programs. We used data collected on 1,573 adults who were ultimately accepted for admission to analyze treatment refusals and attrition during the 25 days after admission. Only 6.4% of the clients refused admission when informed of their treatment assignment. Planned duration of the residential phase of treatment, gender, and language spoken (English/Spanish) interacted with one another and differentially predicted treatment refusal/attrition. These findings may be useful for understanding treatment refusal and attrition in substance abuse treatment programs. PMID:10812314

Functional Status and Inflammation after Preseason Training Program in Professional and Recreational Soccer Players: a Proteomic Approach  

PubMed Central

The purpose of the study was to determine if an intensive pre- season training program modifies the inflammatory status in professional soccer players and if this inflammatory profile may be associated with the physical state. We compared plasma protein biomarkers, using proteomics, and the physiological state and cardiac function in 12 professional soccer players and 9 recreational soccer players. Reduced cardiac low frequency [LF] after the pre- season training program previous competition with respect to recreational soccer players was found. No differences were found in cardiac high frequency, cardiac high frequency/low frequency ratio, tension index and oxygen volume consumption. Alpha-1-antitrypsin isotype-3, fibrinogen-gamma isotypes-1, 2 and 3 and vitamin-D-binding protein isotype-1 were reduced in professionals players compared with those in recreational players. However, an increased content of alpha-1-antitrypsin isotype-6 and alpha-1-antichymotrypsin 1 and 4 were found in professional soccer players. Spearman’s analysis showed a positive correlation between LF and fibrinogen-gamma chain isotype 3; but LF was negatively correlated with alpha-antichymotrypsin isotype 4. Professional soccer players submitted to an intensive training showed differences in the content of plasma proteins associated with inflammatory/oxidative stress and thrombosis with respect to recreational soccer players. Proteomics analysis in combination with the analysis of cardiac function assessment may be useful to know more in depth molecular processes associated with sport and intensive exercise. Key points Proteomics allow us to find differences in the plasma protein content in sportsmen. Just after pre-season training program, professional soccer players showed lower content of circulating proteins associated with inflammation compared to recreational soccer players. Proteomic analysis in combination with the analysis of cardiac function may be useful to know more in depth molecular inflammatory and oxidative processes associated with the sport.

Distance-education programs have the potential to greatly increase the number of veterinary technicians. The demographic characteristics, readiness for independent and online learning, learning styles, and academic locus of control of a group of distance-education and on-campus veterinary technology students were examined. Distance-education students preferred independent learning and were more internally motivated to learn. Distance-education students with greater degrees of independence and internal motivation participated more fully, were more satisfied with their learning, and achieved higher grades. Students who preferred problem solving and active experimentation were particularly successful in distance education. These findings could have important implications for advising students interested in distance-education programs. PMID:19066363

This study demonstrates how two recurrent problems of urban recreation programs—recruitment of members and reduction of disruptive behaviors within the program—can be handled simply by contingently adjusting the amount of time the recreation activities are available. When extra time in the recreation center was provided to those youths who brought new members, dramatic increases in membership were achieved. On the other hand, when the closing time for each evening's recreation program was publicly moved forward by a few minutes for each offense, disruptive behaviors were nearly eliminated. Recreation used as a reinforcer can thus improve the basic operation of a recreation center and might similarly enhance other presumed and desired functions of recreation.

Connecting Community With Campus to Address Cancer Health Disparities: A Community Grants Program Model  

PubMed Central

Background With growing interest in the CBPR approach to cancer health disparities research, mechanisms are needed to support adherence to its principles. The Carolina Community Network (CCN), 1 of 25 Community Network Programs funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), developed a model for providing funds to community-based organizations. Objectives This paper presents the rationale and structure of a Community Grants Program (CGP) model, describes the steps taken to implement the program, and discusses the lessons learned and recommendations for using the grants model for CBPR. Methods Three types of projects—cancer education, implementation of an evidence-based intervention, and the development of community–academic research partnerships—could be supported by a community grant. The CGP consists of four phases: Pre-award, peer-review process, post-award, and project implementation. Results The CGP serves as a catalyst for developing and maintaining community–academic partnerships through its incorporation of CBPR principles. Conclusions Providing small grants to community-based organizations can identify organizations to serve as community research partners, fostering the CBPR approach in the development of community–academic partnerships by sharing resources and building capacity.

Institutionalizing Undergraduate Research Across a Campus: Insights from the French Creek Watershed Research Program  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We have used an NSF-DUE grant to build a long term, collaborative undergraduate research program across the natural sciences. Using a regional (2850 km2) watershed as the unit for collaboration, natural science faculty and students at Allegheny College have spent 3 years collecting, compiling, and analyzing data within the French Creek Watershed. Field data were generated during laboratory course sessions as well as student-faculty research projects. An electronic database of abstracts from senior projects (>150 abstracts, with keyword/author/title search capability) allows students to examine research conducted by their peers and obtain ideas for their own projects. The program website serves as a permanent global venue to disseminate background information, maps/photos, and research results. More than half of the students in introductory earth science courses collected field data and/or spatial data from the website to use in assignments. More than half of the students described their experience as "challenging" and "interesting" while less than one quarter said the experience was frustrating. Based on the success of this program, the College has expanded the vision and provided support to include the French Creek Watershed as a platform for research and teaching in the humanities and social science curriculum.

Fuel used for off-highway recreation  

SciTech Connect

The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA) established a National Recreational Trails Funding Program and the National Recreational Trails Trust Fund. ISTEA requires that tax revenue generated from the sales of motor fuel used for off-highway recreation by transferred from the Highway Trust Fund to the Trails Trust Fund for recreational trail and facility improvements. In order to apportion the Trails Trust Fund of individual states equitably, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) asked the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to estimate the amount of motor fuel used for off-highway recreation at the state level by different vehicle types. This report documents this estimation procedure. For this estimation procedure, off-highway recreational fuel use was defined as Federally taxed gasoline, gasohol, diesel fuel, or special fuel used in recreational motorized vehicles on recreational trails or back country terrain. Fuel used in outdoor non-engine recreational equipment, such as camp stoves, heaters, and lanterns, was excluded from the analysis. Vehicle types included in this study were: pickup truck, light utility vehicle, motorcycle, all terrain vehicle (ATV), and snowmobile.

Recreational injuries among older Americans, 2001  

PubMed Central

Objective: To describe the epidemiology of non-fatal recreational injuries among older adults treated in United States emergency departments including national estimates of the number of injuries, types of recreational activities, and diagnoses. Methods: Injury data were provided by the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System-All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP), a nationally representative subsample of 66 out of 100 NEISS hospitals. Potential cases were identified using the NEISS-AIP definition of a sport and recreation injury. The authors then reviewed the two line narrative to identify injuries related to participation in a sport or recreational activity among men and women more than 64 years old. Results: In 2001, an estimated 62 164 (95% confidence interval 35 570 to 88 758) persons ?65 years old were treated in emergency departments for injuries sustained while participating in sport or recreational activities. The overall injury rate was 177.3/100 000 population with higher rates for men (242.5/100 000) than for women (151.3/100 000). Exercising caused 30% of injuries among women and bicycling caused 17% of injuries among men. Twenty seven percent of all treated injuries were fractures and women (34%) were more likely than men (21%) to suffer fractures. Conclusions: Recreational activities were a frequent cause of injuries among older adults. Fractures were common. Many of these injuries are potentially preventable. As more persons engage in recreational activities, applying known injury prevention strategies will help to reduce the incidence of these injuries.

Campus sustainable food projects: critique and engagement.  

PubMed

Campus sustainable food projects recently have expanded rapidly. A review of four components - purchasing goals, academic programs, direct marketing, and experiential learning - shows both intent and capacity to contribute to transformational change toward an alternative food system. The published rationales for campus projects and specific purchasing guidelines join curricular and cocurricular activities to evaluate, disseminate, and legitimize environmental, economic, social justice, and health concerns about conventional food. Emerging new metrics of food service practices mark a potential shift from rhetoric to market clout, and experiential learning builds new coalitions and can reshape relations with food and place. Campus projects are relatively new and their resilience is not assured, but leading projects have had regional, state, and national impact. The emergence of sustainability rankings in higher education and contract-based compliance around purchasing goals suggests that if support continues, higher education's leadership can extend to the broader agrifood system.

National Campus Compact  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Founded in 1985 by the presidents of Brown, Georgetown and Stanford universities, the Campus Compact organization was designed to combat the popular image of college students as being wholly self-absorbed and uninterested in the broad range of social concerns outside the walls of their respective colleges and universities. Today, the organization remains committed to helping a wide variety of institutions create supportive academic environments for community service and to forming partnerships with a host of institutions, including those in the worlds of business and social-service providers. As might be expected, there is a wide range of free publications available on the site, including materials on starting campus-community partnerships, information on relevant legislation and policy, and materials on incorporating service-learning projects into the college-level curriculum. Of course, visitors will want to take a look at the current edition (and the archived issues) of their two fine in-house publications, the Campus Compact Reader (which highlights the best writing on civic education and service-learning from around the US), and the Compact Current, which is the organization's quarterly newsletter for organizations and institutions involved in public and community service.

Adderall abuse on college campuses: a comprehensive literature review.  

PubMed

Prescription stimulant abuse has dramatically increased over the past 10 years, but the amount of research regarding college students and illicit prescription stimulant use is still very limited. This has important implications for college mental health professionals and higher education administrators. In this comprehensive literature review the author explores factors contributing to illicit use, self-medication, and recreational use of controlled prescription stimulants; discusses the potential consequences for those students abusing stimulants; and provides recommendations for educating, combating, and assisting students who illicitly use prescriptions stimulants on college campuses.

This paper provides an analysis of energy use on community college campuses which justifies the introduction of a simple model for describing that energy use. The model is then applied to the data from 80 campuses to determine average values for the parameters of the model. The model can be used to measure the energy savings of conservation programs as well as the cost avoidance associated with those savings. Because the model explicitly takes into account variations in weather, it provides an essential tool for evaluating energy conservation programs.

Publically Funded Recreation Facilities: Obesogenic Environments for Children and Families?  

PubMed Central

Increasing healthy food options in public venues, including recreational facilities, is a health priority. The purpose of this study was to describe the public recreation food environment in British Columbia, Canada using a sequential explanatory mixed methods design. Facility audits assessed policy, programs, vending, concessions, fundraising, staff meetings and events. Focus groups addressed context and issues related to action. Eighty-eighty percent of facilities had no policy governing food sold or provided for children/youth programs. Sixty-eight percent of vending snacks were chocolate bars and chips while 57% of beverages were sugar sweetened. User group fundraisers held at the recreation facilities also sold ‘unhealthy’ foods. Forty-two percent of recreation facilities reported providing user-pay programs that educated the public about healthy eating. Contracts, economics, lack of resources and knowledge and motivation of staff and patrons were barriers to change. Recreation food environments were obesogenic but stakeholders were interested in change. Technical support, resources and education are needed.

Perceptions of leadership and student performance in science from campus leaders in selected high schools  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This naturalistic study focused on the perceptions of leadership and student performance in science from campus leaders in three purposefully selected secondary campuses of ninth through twelfth grades. Each school had experienced an improvement in student passing rates on the science TAKS test that exceeded the state's percent improvement in passing rates for the past three years and had a record of improving science TAKS scores for the period of 2003 to 2008 exceeding fifteen percentage points. The qualitative research technique of multi-case studies design was used. Data was collected through semi-structured, in-depth interviews with four campus leaders from each of the selected schools. These campus leaders included campus administrators, science department chairs, and grade-level team leaders. A framework of transformational leadership was utilized in the analysis of the data generated from the interviews. The perception from the campus leaders was that leadership has a positive impact on student success in science. The findings indicated perceptions of leadership from the campus leaders had certain leadership practices in common. These included (a) clear vision and goals from the campus principal, (b) high performance expectations for teachers and students from administrators and science department leaders, (c) encouragement and support from campus administrators and science department leaders to develop new programs to address problem areas, (d) emphasis on collaborative teams, and (e) open door policy from administrators.

A competency-based approach to preparing staff as recreation and youth development leaders.  

PubMed

Youth development professionals and parks and recreation professionals often are charged with providing services to youth. However, the approach of each can be quite different as recreation is a primary focus for recreation professionals and part of many services offered by youth development specialists. Despite the differences, these two groups of professionals can learn a great deal from each other. This article examines youth development and staff training with examples from the field and suggests how youth development professionals can learn from recreation professionals and vice versa. It suggests that parks and recreation professionals can strengthen degree programs, accreditation, certification, and continuing education by incorporating specific youth development competencies established by the National Collaboration for Youth. For their part, youth development professionals can learn from parks and recreation professionals how to enhance recreation programming as part of their services by gaining an understanding of program design, program and activity leadership, and administrative practices. With much debate over whether more education or more experience is a better path for those working with youth, the authors suggest that a combination of both will adhere to the quality of staff. Staff gain further knowledge and skill from academic preparation at the undergraduate and graduate levels, field-based training through jobs and internships, and continuing education courses specializing in youth development competencies and recreation-based competencies set within a youth development environment.

For those looking for high-quality information on these subjects, this website is a fine place to start. With funding provided by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the site contains examples of prevention approaches that professionals and concerned citizens can implement on their own campuses and surrounding communities. Tabs at the top of the home page allow visitors to directly access materials dealing with alcohol, mental health, and violence. Additionally, the site wisely digests these materials appropriately for different audiences, including administrators, parents, and students. Persons who may already be working with such a prevention plan will want to look at the ÂKey Processes area of the site. Here they will find information on how to best evaluate their own existing programs and how to also adopt an effective strategic plan.

Solid waste characterization and recycling potential for a university campus  

SciTech Connect

Integrated waste management systems are one of the greatest challenges for sustainable development. For these systems to be successful, the first step is to carry out waste characterization studies. In this paper are reported the results of a waste characterization study performed in the Campus Mexicali I of the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC). The aim of this study was to set the basis for implementation of a recovery, reduction and recycling waste management program at the campus. It was found that the campus Mexicali I produces 1 ton of solid wastes per day; more than 65% of these wastes are recyclable or potentially recyclable. These results showed that a program for segregation and recycling is feasible on a University Campus. The study also showed that the local market for recyclable waste, under present conditions - number of recycling companies and amounts of recyclables accepted - can absorb all of these wastes. Some alternatives for the potentially recyclables wastes are discussed. Finally some strategies that could be used to reduce waste at the source are discussed as well.

SCIRehab Project Series: The Therapeutic Recreation Taxonomy  

PubMed Central

Background/Objective: Outcomes research of therapeutic recreation (TR) activities and interventions for spinal cord injury (SCI) rehabilitation is made more difficult by a lack of uniform descriptions and the absence of a formal treatments classification system (taxonomy). The objective of this study was to describe a taxonomy developed by Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists. Methods: TR lead clinicians and researchers from 6 SCI rehabilitation centers developed a TR documentation system to describe the details of each TR session involving patients with SCI enrolled in the SCIRehab study. The SCIRehab study uses the practice-based evidence methodology, a rigorous observational methodology that examines current practice without introducing additional treatments, to capture details of each TR session for 1,500 SCI rehabilitation patients at 6 US inpatient SCI rehabilitation facilities. This may be the first attempt to document the many details of the TR rehabilitation process for patients with SCI. Results: The TR taxonomy consists of 6 activities (eg, leisure education and counseling, outings, and leisure skill work in center) and activity-specific interventions, as well as time spent on each activity. Activity descriptions are enhanced with additional details that focus on assistance needs for each activity, patient ability to direct care, and patient/family involvement, which may help to determine TR activity selection. Conclusion: Development and application of a TR taxonomy, which is comprehensive for patients with SCI and efficient to use, are feasible despite significantly different TR programs at the 6 SCIRehab centers.

Supporting high school students to engage in recreational activities with peers.  

PubMed

The authors investigated the effects of an intervention package to support five high school students with extensive support-needs to initiate and engage in recreational activities with general-education peers in their physical education classes. The intervention components were (a) assessing participants' recreational activity goals, (b) teaching self-prompting using a picture book, (c) programming common stimuli, and (d) asking participants to assess daily performance and evaluate daily goal achievement. The intervention was associated with increases in participants' initiation of and engagement in recreational activities with general-education peers, as well as increases in ratings of quality of interaction. In addition, participants typically assessed with accuracy their performance of recreational activities and whether they had achieved their recreational goals. Findings are discussed with respect to future research and practice. PMID:14710705

Technology Mentoring: Research Results across Seven Campuses  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Representatives from seven community college campuses throughout Hawaii were designated to coordinate the creation of Technology Intensive (TI) courses using a model developed at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Data collection focused on qualitative measures: written narratives, pre and post surveys, and samples of technology products and curriculum changes. This approach allowed for the detection of subtle changes in faculty growth with regard to technology. Findings suggest that a strong mentoring program promoted substantial progress among study participants to model technology for students. Many faculty members quickly incorporated technologies into courses and promoted student use of technology in a short period of time. Participants transferred the technologies they learned with their mentor into classroom instruction and modeled the use of these technologies for their students. Technology mentoring transformed faculty into able technology users, diversifying their use of technology to accomplish specific teaching objectives.

This study examines the impact of racial diversity on the reported number of hate crimes that occur on campus. Findings suggest that those schools that are most successful in recruiting the hardest to recruit minorities (Black and Latino students) report fewer hate crimes on campus. Implications for campus climate and racial dynamics on campus, as well as future research, are discussed. PMID:22007114

[Substance abuse in recreational exercise].  

PubMed

Substance abuse has become increasingly widespread among athletes at sub competitive and recreational level, due in part to the lack of controls in form of doping tests. Hypertension and the many other side effects related to the illicit use of prescription drugs pose a substantial but often underestimated threat to public health. The symptoms are recognized late and are then mostly repressed or misjudged. Since the abuse is concealed to the doctor when help is finally sought, it results in extensive and expensive tests that can seldom lead to an effective treatment. Two case reports are presented to elaborate on this issue. PMID:20221969

Sexual Assault on Campus: A Frustrating Search for Justice  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Sexual assaults on campus have been a subject of great concern for decades, and this thoughtful website from the Center for Public Integrity provides insight into this troubling phenomenon. The investigative work for this project was done by Kristen Lombardi and Kristin Jones who began their work by surveying crisis service programs and clinics on or near college campuses across the country. They followed up on this work by interviewing nearly 50 current and former college students who say they were raped or sexually assaulted by other students and other members of their respective academic communities. After all of this work, the reporters and the Center teamed up with a number of partners to create the series featured on this website. Here visitors can make their way through sections that include "Articles," "Resources," and "Related Stories." Many of the articles are accompanied by radio features from their partners at National Public Radio and the "Resources" area contains a reporter's toolkit for journalists. Additionally, there is the helpful resource "Understanding the Law," which talks about the three key laws which effect how sexual assault claims are handled on campuses across the country.

Around the United States, Campuses Reflect on 9/11  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Two years after the tragic events of 9/11, many people around the US and the world attended a number of memorial services dedicated to the lives of those who passed away on that horrible day. Along with the services held in New York and Washington, DC, numerous college campuses paid homage to the deceased in a number of ways. On the campus of the University of Wisconsin at Madison, the school's austere carillon tower bells chimed at 10:30 AM for several minutes, and a blood drive was planned with the cooperation of the American Red Cross. At Pennsylvania State University in State College, PA, the Hillel Foundation for Jewish Campus Life and several Greek organizations sponsored a Mitzvah Marathon, where members of the university community received a photograph of one of the victims, and each participant was told to carry out a mitzvah (or good deed), with the intent to "get rid of darkness by adding a little light to our lives." A number of schools featured similar programs, with many of them opting out of the more elaborate memorial services that were common last September, and electing instead to allow students to choose to reflect in their own fashion.The first link leads to a news story about the events held to commemorate 9/11 on the campus of the University of Wisconsin from one of their student newspapers, the Daily Cardinal. The second link leads to an article from the PSU Digital Collegian that talks about the service activities that were an integral part of the remembrances on their campus in State College, PA. The third link leads to a news piece from the Yale Daily News that highlights the candlelight vigil, readings, and performances that were held this past Thursday. The fourth link leads to an article from the UCLA Daily Bruin that features comments from students about their reactions and feelings about the recent anniversary of the events of 9/11. The fifth link is to a special Web page developed by Education World that contains a number of resources for helping teachers talk with young people about coping with crisis and tragedy. The final link leads to a 10-page document developed by the National Institute of Mental Health that explicates what is known about the impact of violence and disasters on children and adolescents, and also suggests steps to minimize long-term emotional harm.
