"Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust"

"Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust"

Sunday, February 16, 2020 (All day) to Sunday, March 8, 2020 (All day)

Millions of ordinary people witnessed the crimes of the Holocaust. "Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust," produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., explores how "neighbors"--workers, teenagers, policemen, religious leaders, business associates, teachers and friends--made individual choices that amounted to collaboration, complicity and, less frequently, resistance with regard to Nazi Germany’s persecution and murder of Jews.

Safe Zone Ally Training Phase Two

Sunday, February 23, 2020 - 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm

The Safe Zone Ally program is  designed to identify and train community members interested in supporting the continued growth of an inclusive campus community. This program supports the university's value of cultivating a caring and diverse campus community that values respect for all people, the open and free exchange of ideas, and responsible and ethical behavior. This program is not an LGBTQ+ 101 training, but instead an opportunity for those interested in supporting our community.

Red Watch Band Training - Fraternity and Sorority Life

The Office of Student Life, in partnership with the Student Wellness Services, provides an interactive alcohol education and bystander training to all members of Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL). This training, called Red Watch Band, is adapted from the program provided by Stony Brook University and seeks to:

  • Promote a student culture of kindness, responsibility, compassion and respect.

  • Provide students with knowledge, awareness, and skills to prevent toxic drinking deaths.

  • Build confidence in students to intervene on behalf of another through bystander training.

The Red Watch Band training symbolizes that the FSL community bands together to watch out for one another when every second countsIt is an expectation of all FSL members to participate once during their time at UNI. This includes new members of each chapter and active members who have not previously participated.
