St. Bonaventure University’s Student Affairs division, Franciscan Center for Social Concern, Women's Studies program, and several student organizations will host a number of upcoming events to participate in the nationwide “Enough is Enough” campaign.
St. Bonaventure and campuses across the country will speak out, engage in dialogue, and take action to stem the tide of societal violence.
Activities begin Monday, March 31, and include:
In addition, a number of campus organizations, including the Student Government Association, all campus clubs, and the Student-Athlete Advisory Council, will participate in and support SafeZone training presentations slated for 2014–15. Yvonne Makl, coordinator of the Damietta Center, will be conducting the workshops, which give participants the skills they need to provide support and create environments that are safe, welcoming and inclusive.
Background on “Enough is Enough” movement In 2008, Dr. Zenobia Lawrence Hikes, Virginia Tech University vice president of student affairs, called on fellow student affairs administrators to work to counteract and prevent societal violence, which, in turn, will help prevent campus violence. In recognition of the tragic shootings at Virginia Tech (April 16, 2007) and Columbine High School (April 20, 1999), “Enough is Enough” week is observed throughout the United States in April.
