My Story Out Loud
“#MyStoryOUTLoud is a campaign for LGBTQ+ students of color to share their experiences in education. As intersectional students who have to navigate race, gender, identity, and orientation, sometimes our needs get segmented. But we are not in parts, we are whole people, and we are asking for campuses to acknowledge and integrate these intersections, so that we can thrive as students.” -Advocates for Youth

New OU Advocate Training
When: May 17, 2017, 9:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m.
Where: Oklahoma Memorial Union, President’s room
“This day-long training will increase participants’ understanding of sexual assault college campuses, University response protocols, and crisis intervention techniques. This training is open to both men and women. Participating in training does not commit you to becoming an advocate.
After completing training, those Norman/HSC staff interested in becoming an advocate will sign up to be on-call with one other advocate, two weeks out of the semester. Advocates respond 24/7 to OU staff, students, and faculty that experience sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, and harassment. Advocates provide immediate crisis intervention, referrals to other supports, and advocacy with campus and community systems. Norman/HSC advocates must live within 30 minutes of the Norman campus. Tulsa advocates only respond during work hours. Questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.” Lunch provided!
Inclusive Teaching: Focus on Diversity Assignments
“Faculty and instructors have a responsibility to help students develop greater and more mindful cultural intelligence. To do that, we often ask students to engage in “diversity” programs and activities outside of the classroom that, even with the best intentions, can tend toward tokenism and cultural voyeurism. This workshop will be a think tank where instructors can explore culturally cognizant curriculum development that incorporates extracurricular opportunities. Participants will explore how out of class opportunities can encourage students to think about diverse identities, and issues of equity and justice, in ways that do not reproduce the very dynamics instructors wish to teach against.” RSVP through the OrgSync form.
