Estate Planning Basics

Believe it or not, you have an estate. In fact, nearly everyone does. Your estate is comprised of everything you own. No matter how large or how modest, everyone has an estate and something in common—you can’t take it with you when you die.

When that happens—and it is a “when” and not an “if”—you probably want to control how those things are given to the people or organizations you care most about.

Interpersonal Violence Survivor Support Ally Training

By deciding to work in a University setting, we have all joined a village of professionals seeking to provide students with the best resources and care possible.  Sexual Assault and intimate partner violence are not new topics but have become front and center in recent years as individuals share their experiences and participate in movements like #METOO.  UNCG has taken a step forward by developing the Campus Violence Response Center (CVRC), a confidential resource for survivors.  However, the response doesn’t always begin in the CVRC but instead starts with our campus partners.

This interactive presentation will highlight the campus and community resources necessary to create a safer, non-violent campus culture.  Staff and faculty will learn skills for preventing violence and responding to survivors in a trauma informed and caring way.

Critical Thinking for Productive Group Collaboration

This 2.5-hour long interactive workshop is open to all UNCG faculty and staff and should be of special interest to employees who work in committee contexts.

The first hour of the workshop is devoted to identifying the fundamentals of argument construction and evaluation - the bread and butter of critical thinking. Participants will classify different types of reasoning and problem-solving strategies, along with broad strategies for assessing the strengths and flaws of different kinds of arguments. The second hour focuses on interpersonal skills and strategies that promote healthy, productive exchanges in group discussions. Participants learn to spot common fallacies of reasoning and cognitive biases, as well as practice key principles of civility and metacognition in live scenarios, to defuse or prevent tense or "toxic" exchanges.

The workshop is co-led by Dr. Adam Rosenfeld and Dr. Frances Bottenberg, Lecturers in the UNCG Philosophy Department since 2015 and regular instructors of the Philosophy Department's undergraduate Critical Thinking course.
