Hampden District Attorney Anthony D. Gulluni, in partnership with the Massachusetts Teachers Association, UMASS at Springfield, and the National Education Association, is sponsoring a day of free continuing education for education professionals. The all-day event is open to faculty and staff who work in colleges and universities here in Hampden County. The target audience includes, but is not limited to, staff and faculty from community colleges, colleges, and universities. Although the target audience is higher education faculty, administrators and staff, the conference is open to all school professionals who deal with college-bound students.
The full day of classes will include modules on Human Trafficking, Sexual Violence 101, BROmoting Healthy Masculinity, and Domestic Violence: an Overview.
The MTA/NEA and Hampden County District Attorney Anthony D Gulluni’s Higher Education Safe Campus Summit is designed to bring together staff and faculty from community colleges, colleges, and universities in the Hampden County area and beyond to learn how to help students in unhealthy relationships.
The keynote speaker will be Mariah Girouard, who will share her story of survival. In October 2011, Mariah’s ex-boyfriend was convicted of first degree murder for the stabbing death of her mother in July 2010 after he had broken into her family home. Mariah will discuss her personal story including identifying the ‘red flags’ of domestic and sexual violence and how she has moved forward after suffering the tragic loss of her mother.
Breakfast, lunch, and parking in the Tower Square Parking Garage will be provided.
