Difficult Conversations: Communicating through Tough Times

Presented by College of Liberal Arts, Communications Studies
Monday, September 19-Friday, September 23
This two-part event addresses the need for students to develop communication skills that will help them navigate difficult conversations (in relationships, in organizations, and in civic life).
First, interactive yard signs will be on display across campus during MT Engage Week and beyond. The signs will be designed by Communication faculty and students to share concepts related to effectively communicating during difficult conversations. Each sign will also invite students to interact with the concepts using a QR code, entering them into a prize contest. This interdisciplinary topic encompasses a variety of Communication courses including the general education class COMM 2200 and will directly reach more than 300 students through class activities and will be open to students across campus. Faculty in the Communication Studies department will coordinate a "field trip" (date TBD) with their individual classes, inviting students to interact with the signs in lieu of a normal class meeting. 
Second, a culminating event (date TBD) will be held on campus to provide students with information, trainings, and resources to help with difficult conversations. Featured guests will include the Blue Raider Debate Team, Communication Studies Faculty presenting trainings on civil dialogue, conflict resolution, and implicit bias, and various MTSU student organizations (e.g., Comm Studies Club, Lambda Pi Eta).

Exercise Supplements 101

Presented by College of Behavioral and Health Sciences, Human Sciences
Tuesday, September 20
5-7:30 p.m.
Rec Center
Misinformation abounds in the nutrition supplement world. This workshop content seeks to assist participants' knowledge and ability to wade through this misinformation and make safe and beneficial supplement choices.   Although the exact number of athletes and exercisers said to use nutrition supplements is unknown, it is postulated that the number is well over 50% of athletes and those who exercise. According to one estimate, retail sales of the category of "sports nutrition supplements" totaled $5.67 billion in 2016, or 13.8% of $41.16 billion total sales for dietary supplements and related nutrition products for that year (NIH Fact Sheet for Health Professionals, Dietary Supplements for Exercise and Athletes).  Because supplements are not regulated by the FDA, unlike food and medicine, the safety and efficacy of these products can be questionable. An objective of this workshop is to help consumers know what to look for on products to assure safety of their purchase.

Participants will have the opportunity to examine a variety of popular products on the market and practice analyzing the ingredients, and labels for macro and micronutrients.  Additionally, the participants will have the opportunity to bring sample supplements that they are using at home or plan to purchase and review those with the facilitators for safety.  Samples of food is medicine products will be demonstrated by the MT Nutrition Team. The MT Nutrition Team is a group of 3 senior dietetic students. They will prepare samples of high protein bars or balls and smoothies. These "healthier" versions of pre and post workout foods can be made at home using store purchased ingredients making them less costly and a safe alternative.

Books Unite Us - A banned books week event

Writing Center, The Fairness, Justice, and Equity Center in the College of Education
Wednesday, September 21
3-4 p.m.
COE 164
“The Banned Books Week Coalition is an international alliance of diverse organizations joined by a commitment to increase awareness of the annual celebration of the freedom to read. The Coalition seeks to engage various communities and inspire participation in Banned Books Week through education, advocacy, and the creation of programming about the problem of book censorship. Books unite us. Books encourage boundless exploration and allow readers to spread their wings. Stories give flight to new ideas and perspectives. Reading—especially books that set us free—expands our worldview. Censorship, on the other hand, locks away our freedom and divides us from humanity in our own cages.” (https://bannedbooksweek.org/)
This event will include selected readings from banned books along with discussion protocols empowering attendees to think critically about the books being banned and why. During the event, leaders will have trivia questions provided by https://bannedbooksweek.org, and hand out door prizes provided by the College of Education and the Writing Center. Attendees will experience a gallery walk, discussing and analyzing from a list of banned books. All attendees will take home one book.
