February 2013: Spring Showcase
We had a tremendously successful Spring 2013 Civility Showcase event as we continued another year of Civility here at CSUSM. We had wonderful collaborations this year with Papa John's, who helped us provide free pizza to the community; Artmiles and CSUSM Community Outreach, who helped us create a mural on campus in collaboration with CSUSM students, staff and faculty; the Kellogg Library, who helped us connect with a local artist, Saul Figeroa, who created beautiful artwork to represent his journey that is now on display in the library, along with the mural we created; and members from Student Life & Leadership, the Dean of Students Office, and USUAB, who came out to support us and spread the word about Civility. We are so happy with this wonderful event, and we look forward to many more Civility celebrations in the future!
February 2013: T-Shirt Day
We kicked off our first Civility T-shirt Tuesday of the semester on February 5 at U-hour and we had lots of folks stop by our table to earn their Civility T-shirt! We were doing a lot of promotion for our big event of the semester, our 2nd Annual Civility Showcase, taking place on February 12 at U-hour in collaboration with the CSUSM Library, ArtMiles, and many other campus and community partners. Special shout out to Patty Diaz for joining us and representing SOAR that day!
October 2012: Anti-Bullying MonthOctober is National Anti-Bullying Month, so we decided to educate and empower the CSUSM community about different types of bullying, along with resources they can use if they are bullied themselves. We did much of our campaign through passive programming, such as posting flyers throughout campus and on our Facebook page, along with sharing videos and other resources specifically to the individuals on our Civility Listserve.
If you have any questions or any resources you’d like to share, feel free to contact Sammi Carr at firstname.lastname@example.org.
September 2012: Civility Kickoff
On September 4, 2012, we celebrated the 2nd Annual Civility Kickoff!!! We gave out Civility bracelets, buttons, and bookmarks. We had 130+ students, staff, and faculty sign up for the Civility Pledge, along with giving out 300 Green Civility T-Shirts and 100 Papa John’s Pizzas.
Along with taking pictures with Crash the Cougar, we cosponsored with ARTMILES, which is a non-profit art organization dedicated to solving problems and helping people communicate through art. They donated a 5x12 ft mural that was painted solely by CSUSM students, staff, and faculty as they defined their meaning of Civility.
It was a tremendously successful day and we are looking forward to the 2nd Annual Civility Showcase this Spring!
