Involvement Center Porch
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

As we honor Day of Silence, the Involvement Center invites you to join us in the giant ball pit in front of the Involvement Center. Students have the opportunity to get into the ball pit and spend as much time as they would like. You can also search for a ball containing an affirmation that you get to keep.

This is a silent event, so no talking will take place. It will be imperative that folks read the instruction on the QR code in order to participate thoroughly in this event.
We hope to see you there!



Day of Silence | Safe Space Training

Friday, April 14
10:00am - 12:00pm
MSC Great Hall
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

My Silence, My Action. The Day of Silence is a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQIA+ students and allies all around the country—and the world—take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQIA+ people in schools. This year, the Qube is doing Day of Silence a little differently.

Started in the mid 90’s by two college students, the Day of Silence has expanded to reach hundreds of thousands of students each year. Every April, students go through the school day without speaking, ending the day with Breaking the Silence rallies and events to share their experiences during the protest and bring attention to ways their schools and communities can become more inclusive.

The Qube invites you to take action and join our in-person Safe Space Training session. This 2-hour session will offer discussions and activities to help you learn about the best practices, opportunities, and resources to improve your understanding of and advocacy for the LGBTQIA+ community.

Phishing Friday: Protect your Personal Information

If you’re asked to provide any personal information, delete the email immediately. Cybercriminals often use phishing tactics, such as sending fake emails that appear legitimate, to trick individuals into divulging personal information such as usernames, passwords, social security numbers, or credit card information. It's crucial to remember that legitimate organizations or businesses typically do not request sensitive information via email.
