Clarion University will celebrate Equity Week Nov. 11-13.
“BULLY,” a documentary by Lee Hirsch, captures five different stories of bullying in today’s society and how it has affected the lives of the bullied children and their families. It will be shown at 7 p.m. Nov. 11 in Hart Chapel. The film sheds light on the issue of bullying and aims to change perceptions on how it is handled in schools and communities in America.
A roundtable discussion, “Voices Against Violence,” will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Nov. 12 in Eagle Commons. Sponsored by the Presidential Commission for Sexual Harassment, some topics of discussion include violence against women, bullying, and how students perceive violence and bullying on campus and the resources available to help students.
Equity Week will close with the Equity Dinner and Awards Ceremony, sponsored by Student Senate, from 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 13 in Gemmell multi-purpose room. The featured speakers will be Mark Conrad and Dalyann Fuller from the Venango College Veterans Club.
All of the Equity Week events are free and open to students, faculty and community members. Those interested in the roundtable discussion and the dinner must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 8.
