Stalking Awareness Month

January marks the 15th National Stalking Awareness Month. Stalking is a serious crime with real consequences. People ages 18 – 24 experience the highest rate of stalking and 80 percent of stalking survivors report knowing their stalker. Survivors may struggle with anxiety and depression as a result of their victimization, along with potential physical and sexual violence.

The Canisius Sexual Violence Prevention Team encourages faculty, staff and students to attend a workshop on Wednesday, January 23 (with sessions beginning at 5:00 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. in the Regis Room). The workshops will highlight the importance of stalking/cyberstalking awareness and what we all can do to intervene and support survivors.

Thinking of You/Get Well Card Drive

The School of Education and Human Services wants to make the campus community aware of a need from Michele Marable, PhD, professor emeritus of teacher education, who retired in fall 2017. She was recently diagnosed with brain cancer and is currently undergoing treatments at Roswell Park Cancer Center. She remains positive and upbeat but the process is scary, lonely and grueling.

If you know Michele, we are asking you to write her a note of encouragement. Notes can either be sent to Michele at her home address listed below or by bringing it to the dean’s office (BA 201) and we will send all of them to her. Please give your cards to the dean’s office by Monday, January 27 at 12:00 p.m. so that they are included in the shipment.

Your letters and cards will be a blessing to Michele and her family. Please keep Michele, her husband, Rick, and their two children, Olivia and Julian, in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you.
