If you’ve been following this Intercom series during National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, you know that it’s not always obvious when someone is heading toward developing an eating disorder, or even if they are living with a diagnosable eating disorder. You may know someone who shows clear symptoms, or you may recognize more subtle signs in someone – or yourself. Where do you start to get help?

We’re in the midst of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW) with their message that “Hindsight is 20/20”. The focus this year is on acknowledging that eating disorders can affect anyone and that everyone struggling with an eating disorder, no matter who they are or where they are in recovery, deserves to get the treatment and support they need. By looking back at the past year’s trials and successes, we can increase awareness and understanding of eating disorders and can not only help encourage recovery but also be a part of prevention efforts.

It’s back again: February 24-March 1 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW), and this year is building on last year’s message of inclusivity in the eating disorder community. By looking back and sharing the struggles and successes of individuals’ efforts toward recovery, we can continue the conversation and give courage to others to continue their efforts toward health and self-acceptance.

Eating disorders can affect anyone. No one is immune, regardless of age, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, body shape or weight. Teens and young adults are particularly vulnerable to developing eating disorders, and recent research suggests that transgender people may also be at increased risk. Up to 30% of college women and men meet the criteria for the illness, and 30 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their life.

We are seeking volunteers to serve as College Trained Advisors and/or Board Members for cases of sexual misconduct. Both Advisors and Board Members play a critical role in protecting student rights and enacting due process measures.

College Trained Advisors are part of a pool of college employees made available, through the Title IX Office, to complainants and respondents as they go through the investigative and student conduct processes. Advisors are an invaluable supportive measure for participants of the sexual misconduct process, as they offer support, knowledge, and a helping hand throughout the process.

Board Members will be called upon for Conduct Review Boards to review all evidence collected during an investigation and presented by Complainants and Respondents during the hearing. This board will present a finding based on the preponderance of evidence. Conduct Review Board members are an essential part of the decision-making process and ensure a fair and equitable experience for all involved parties throughout the duration of the hearing.

Difference isn’t the problem. Discourse is! CMST assistant professor Christopher House will offer CLTC 10000:01 Introduction to Culture and Communication as an online course during Winter 2020 (Jan 6-17, 2020).

In this course, students explore and interrogate the ways that communication (e.g., language, media, and discourse) establishes and enacts identity power dynamics. In thinking about communication as global citizens, our online discussions of, for example, movies like Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004) and Snowpiercer (Joon-ho bong, 2013) help us to understand how social identities are constructed, institutionalized, changed, contested and/or appropriated by various social groups.

This course fulfills Liberal Arts general education and ICC Diversity requirements.
