Saint Mary’s basketball team to wear green in support of Green Dot and BAVO

first_imgThe Belles Against Violence Office (BAVO) will offer an opportunity for students to learn about Green Dot at the Saint Mary’s basketball game against Hope College on Jan. 18 at 3 p.m. in the Angela Athletic and Wellness Complex.BAVO offers a variety of resources for Saint Mary’s students, including violence prevention training and counseling services.This upcoming event will focus on the Green Dot program, which educates students about bystander intervention. The program’s message of violence prevention is what sports information director Sarah Miesle said inspired her to become a certified Green Dot instructor in 2017.“The message of Green Dot is just trying to make our community and our surroundings a safer, better place to be in — to be good members of those communities.” Miesle said. “It’s a bystander intervention training. … It teaches you that you always have some kind of opportunity to help people.”The Green Dot program will be advertised throughout the upcoming basketball game as players on both teams will have green incorporated in their uniforms. An information table with a raffle will also be set up in gymnasium. Any of the supporters attending the game can visit the Green Dot table for more information about the program.“We’ll share just a little blurb about what Green Dot is as a bystander intervention program, and give them attainable ways to intervene in potentially violent situations,” BAVO coordinator Liz Coulston said. “Along with that, we do have a drawing at our table for this really cute Saint Mary’s bag.”This is an opportunity for students, parents, faculty and community members to engage with Green Dot, Coulston said.“The goal is to just have conversations with people [so] that they understand what [Green Dot] is,” Coulston said. “… We really believe in teaching our student athletes and students as a whole about the resources they have and things that they can learn.”Students can also learn more about ways to get involved with BAVO and how to spread their message through email updates and BAVO’s Instagram page, Miesle said.Game attendees are encouraged to wear green in support of Green Dot.“We know how great of a campus community we have,” Miesle said. “And it’s [because of] the strength of the students, it’s the strength of the faculty and staff showing up and being supportive [of] one another.”Tags: BAVO, bystander intervention, Green Dot, Green Dot Training, Saint Mary’s Basketballlast_img read more

UVM marks 100,000 COVID tests

first_imgUniversity of Vermont,Vermont Business Magazine University of Vermont President Suresh Garimella and Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger today marked the university’s 100,000th coronavirus test since the start of the fall semester by thanking students for their adherence to testing protocols, and health and safety measures. UVM has reported 27 total positive test results for COVID-19.“Today, I especially want to thank our students for all of their cooperation and efforts to protect our university and our community from COVID-19,” said Garimella. “Let me be clear—this is as much recognition of the stakes at hand, as it is celebration of what we have achieved to date. We do not lose sight of the fact that we are in the middle of a pandemic that has had devastating effects and we cannot lose sight of the fact that there are challenges ahead. However, it’s important we acknowledge the efforts that have enabled us to continue in-person classes despite the pandemic.”During her recent visit to UVM, Ambassador-at-Large Deborah Birx, M.D. gave great credit to UVM students for the role they are playing in keeping new coronavirus test positivity rates among the lowest of any campus in the nation. She underscored the importance of mask wearing, social distancing, handwashing. Dr. Birx also emphasized the value of extensive surveillance testing.UVM administers more than 10,000 student tests per week, a testing volume that is five times higher than the average for colleges and universities partnering with the Broad Institute. The positivity rate has remained low, with the past week’s figure being less than 0.01 percent.Weinberger also credited students. “There has not been enough attention to what a great job UVM students have done throughout the time since they’ve been back,” Weinberger said. “Thank you for the commitment to wearing masks that I see as a neighbor, it’s really been just an outstanding effort and one that is very much appreciated by the people of Burlington.”“I want to reinforce that now is not the time to relax our efforts,” Garimella said. “It’s critical that we do not let down our guard. With cases spiking throughout the nation, including here in Vermont, and the number of tourists arriving in our state, we must maintain our good practices. This is especially the case as we head toward Halloween, the election, Thanksgiving, and weather that tends to keep us inside. We have come too far, and worked too hard, to jeopardize what we have achieved. Indeed, I know you will serve as ambassadors as you go back home for the holidays and work to keep your family and friends safe.”Garimella also acknowledged that’s it’s been hard work for students under unprecedented circumstances. “Wearing masks, social distancing, and getting tested weekly are not part of the usual college experience. I know this has been difficult for you, our students. We are social creatures, and college is a time when you forge many lifelong friendships. But I credit you with finding ways to do that while keeping your friends, your community, and many others you may never meet, safe. This is what it means to be a good citizen. And you have demonstrated this at a time when good citizenship is especially important.”At the event, Garimella introduced Emily Scarbrough, a first-year student in the College of Arts and Sciences, who was identified as the 100,000th test recipient. “Starting my college career during a pandemic has certainly been interesting and a little overwhelming at times,” said Scarbrough. “One thing that I’m so glad to be at UVM for is that everyone here truly wants to be safe and wants (UVM) to remain open, so everyone is doing all that they can to stay socially distant, do activities outdoors when they can, wear their masks and get their weekly tests.”last_img read more
