Align Your Time Workshop

You are invited to: Align Your Time & Priorities: A Workshop on Cultivating Productivity & Work-Family Balance for Faculty & Graduate Students.

Presented by:  Dr. Claire Kamp-Dush, Associate Professor of HDFS

Dear faculty:

Academics are overwhelmed. Grant and publication expectations for faculty are high and competition is fierce. The distractions to academic writing, the one activity that most often advances academic careers, have never been more copious. There is a constant flow of email from administrators, colleagues and students, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are a click away, and enticing news articles and blogs are shared everywhere. Further, as more women than ever before are now graduating from college and moving on to receive PhDs, and as fathers have become more fully involved in family life, work-family balance is at the forefront of many academics’ minds.

This workshop is for faculty who want to take control of their time, enjoy the process, and live a connected life. We will discuss concrete strategies for aligning our time and our priorities. Specific sessions will include: Mapping Priorities and Reviewing our Time, Finding Time, Writing and Teaching Strategies, and Work-Life Balance.

We hope we can include you in this outstanding workshop with facilitator Dr. Claire Kamp-Dush.

Bringing Suicide Prevention Out of the Shadows

On Monday, August 21st, a solar eclipse was visible across Central Ohio. Through breaks in the clouds, students, faculty and staff of Ohio State watched from the top of parking garages, on the oval and scattered along sidewalks as an ominous darkness covered campus. The importance of not looking directly at the eclipse and using protective eclipse glasses had been stressed on the news for days leading up to the event. The OSU Suicide Prevention Program decided to combine the need for this safety precaution with a campaign to promote their important mission.


The OSU Suicide Prevention Program distributed 1,300 pairs of licensed eclipse glasses at the Student Involvement Fair. Another 700 pairs were given to faculty and staff who have been involved in suicide prevention efforts in the past (REACH, RUOK? Buckeyes, advisory boards, STEP faculty mentors, etc.) The glasses were given out along with the slogan Bringing Suicide Prevention Out of the Shadows. Students had to follow @OSUREACH on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook to receive glasses. This effort brought attention to the important work of the OSU Suicide Prevention program and helped to bring suicide prevention to the forefront of students’ minds.
