Committed to Advancing Student Success:
Deepening Our Resiliency in Challenging Times
During her opening keynote, Dr. Darling will identify the most pressing challenges student support teams are confronting in their various efforts to provide students with interventions that respond to traumas and crisis. Dr. Darling believes that resiliency, grit and determination as among the most important qualities student support team professionals possess and display, particularly during the upending times we have been experiencing, and will provide strategies for deepening the resiliency that will help student support professionals and enable them to continue to advance student success in these extremely challenging times.
Dr. Marsha Tyson-Darling is a Professor of History and Interdisciplinary Studies, Director of the Center for African, Black & Caribbean Studies, and Director of the Diversity Certificate Program in the College of Professional and Continuing Studies, and Director of the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation Campus Center at Adelphi University.
Keynote: Presented by Nicole Hockley, Sandy Hook Promise
Know the Signs to Prevent Violence
After her youngest son, Dylan, was murdered in his first-grade classroom at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, Nicole Hockley made a solemn promise to do all she could to protect children from gun violence. She co-founded Sandy Hook Promise with a mission to end school shootings by teaching students and educators to "know the signs" of potential violence and when and how to safely intervene.
Join her to hear more about how to recognize the warning signs of a person who may be in crisis and ways to help, as well as no-cost, research-informed programs and practices that are proven to create safer schools.
Cost: $125 per person
