PRINCIPLES OF COMMUNITY              

The Principles of Community support the Colorado State University mission and vision of access, research, teaching, service and engagement. A collaborative and vibrant community is a foundation for learning, critical inquiry, and discovery. Therefore, each member of the CSU community has a responsibility to uphold these principles when engaging with one another and acting on behalf of the University.

  • Inclusion: We create and nurture inclusive environments and welcome, value and affirm all members of our community, including their various identities, skills, ideas, talents and contributions.
  • Integrity: We are accountable for our actions and will act ethically and honestly in all our interactions.
  • Respect: We honor the inherent dignity of all people within an environment where we are committed to freedom of expression, critical discourse, and the advancement of knowledge.
  • Service: We are responsible, individually and collectively, to give of our time, talents, and resources to promote the well-being of each other and the development of our local, regional, and global communities.
  • Social Justice: We have the right to be treated and the responsibility to treat others with fairness and equity, the duty to challenge prejudice, and to uphold the laws, policies and procedures that promote justice in all respects.

LACTATION ROOMS

Employees wishing to use a room should visit the lactation room and check the availability prior to their first express visit. Scheduling rooms varies by location. See list below.

Each room should remain open at all times unless in use. No formal key request is needed. Each Lactation Room has a table, comfortable chair, and a deadbolt that locks from the inside showing vacant or occupied on the exterior of the door. There are bulletin boards with a schedule available at each room. This board is to be used for communication between nursing mothers and the various women's support groups here on campus. Nursing Mothers are responsible for bringing their own equipment and cleaning up after each use.

Lactation directory and maps are as follows:

SUPPORT GROUPS FOR SURVIVORS OF INTERPERSONAL VIOLENCE

Support Group for Survivors of Interpersonal Violence 

A support group for survivors of sexual assault, child sexual abuse, relationship violence, and/or stalking. Space is created for students to process their experiences, discuss coping strategies, and learn more about how to manage the impact of trauma. There are no structured topics discussed each week, but themes do often arise during each group session. CSU students of any gender who identify as a survivor are welcome to attend after a brief consultation with one of our advocates.

This group meets on Friday afternoons from 3:30-4:45pm while the semester is in session. Contact wgac@colostate.edu for more information.

The Body & the Mind: A Group for Survivors of Interpersonal Trauma

 Trauma can be an overwhelming experience both emotionally and psychologically. When our minds cannot understand or process experiences, they often stay with us in our bodies. Yoga, breathwork, and mindfulness-based practices can provide treatment beyond talk therapy helping to alleviate the body’s experience of trauma. This is an 8-week group providing mindfulness skills, movement, and a space for survivors of interpersonal violence to explore the ways trauma manifests in the body. Participants will learn mindfulness techniques to work with anxiety, post-traumatic symptoms, and depression– observing experiences in the body, and noticing them as they change. Each week will include a short practice of yoga, meditation, and/or breathwork, as well as time for processing together as a group. Students of any gender and ability level are encouraged to join.

The group is free of charge, and will run for 8 weeks during the Spring 2018 semester, Wednesdays 12:00-1:30pm. Interested individuals can contact jessica.morneault@colostate.edu or keiran.bissell@colostate.edu for more information.

Secondary Survivors Workshop

This workshop is available for partners, family and friends of gender based violence survivors. In this workshop we’ll be covering topics from how trauma affects the brain to how you can best support your loved one to how vicarious trauma can impact support systems.

This is a 3 hour workshop that is offered on April 5th from 5-8PM. Please email wgac@colostate.edu if you are interested in more information or to be put on a list for our next workshop.
