AO:03 Sexual Harassment Training for Supervisors

Sexual harassment is one of the major employee complaints filed with state and federal agencies. Besides the threat of potential liability, Santa Rosa Junior College is committed to providing a workplace free of ALL forms of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. 

Even though many employers like Santa Rosa Junior College have a "zero tolerance" policy for any form of harassment, discrimination and retaliation, the courts consistently find that a policy alone is not enough to prevent bad conduct. California now mandates that the most effective way to accomplish prevention is through training. 

Santa Rosa Junior College has arranged for online training from LawRoom, the premier web-based employment law service. The following course will train managers to recognize harassment and discrimination, handle complaints, and avoid retaliation in related workplace situations: 

Course 310: Supervisor Anti-Harassment (CA-AB1825)

If you are required to complete the course, you will receive an invitation by email that briefly describes the course and its completion date. The email invitation will provide brief instructions on accessing the course, along with your ID and Password.

Once you have completed this module, print the Certificate of Completion and submit it with your Flex Verification Form. Both are required in order to receive Flex credit.

If you have any questions, please contact Charles Prickett, District Compliance Officer at 527-4303 or email at cprickett@santarosa.edu.

AO:06 - Issues in Adolescent Development
Jeanie Harmon, Child Development

Adolescence, once a relatively short period in the course of development, has now extended from the teens into the twenties for many youth in America. Much of our student population, particularly those ages 18-22, display characteristics that reflect an extended adolescence. Students are living at home with parents for longer periods of time, taking longer to achieve independence and self-sufficiency, are less familiar with the demands of the work world and have a harder time setting and achieving goals. How do we support the needs of these students, set appropriate expectations and facilitate the skills needed for competence and self-sufficiency? In this session, we will discuss characteristics of late adolescent development and practical strategies for supporting the needs of students, ages 18-22 in the college-learning environment.

04:AL:S - I Sing The Body Electric: The Amazing Theremin
A Lecture Demonstration by Eliot Fintushel on the World’s First Electronic Musical Instrument

Invented in 1920 by Russian scientist Lev Sergeivich Termen, the theremin remains the only musical instrument that is controlled without touch. For a time it became a serious concert instrument--before devolving into a device to chill movie-goers in the soundtracks for such films as “The Day The Earth Stood Still” and then to a woo-woo maker for the Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations.” Eliot Fintushel, an SRJC Theatre Arts instructor, is one of a few serious modern-day performers on the theremin. In this program, he will demonstrate the instrument, playing works of Gershwin, Debussy, and Roddenberry, plus a few choice moves from his day job--as a street mime!

04:AL:T - Blues By The Bay: 14th Evolution of the Blues Concert
Featuring legendary rhythm and blues guitarist, vocalist, and master keyboardist Ron Thompson  plus the 10-year reunion of Impeach This!

Special $10 advance ticket for Spring 09 members of SRJC’s Associated Students Program (must be purchased in advance at the Student Affairs Office, Pioneer Hall on the Santa Rosa Campus).

After a two-year hiatus, the Evolution of the Blues Concert returns to SRJC, paying tribute to the variety of historical and regional styles of one of America’s most important indigenous art forms: the Blues. This year we welcome legendary slide guitarist Ron Thompson.   A San Francisco Bay Area legend, Ron Thompson honed his craft on tour as the band-leader for John Lee Hooker’s Coast to Coast Blues Band throughout most the of the 1970s.  San Francisco Blues Festival founder and producer, and host of KPFA’s weekly Blues By the Bay show, Tom Mazzolini says, “I’ve always felt Ron is the most talented blues guitarist I’ve ever seen. He can do it all. . . What many folks aren’t aware of is that Ron was a huge asset in the re-emergence of John Lee Hooker - he was the foundation for that boogie sound.” Grammy nominated for his album Resistor Twister, Thompson has received countless awards, including Real Blues magazine’s Best Live West Coast Blues Act, and Best West Coast Blues Slide Guitarist.  Opening for Ron will be the 10-year reunion of Impeach This! - a Sonoma County all-star blues band that came together briefly to perform at the 6th Evolution of the Blues Concert in 1998, featuring guitarist Volker Strifler, Bill Noteman on harmonica, Evan Palmerston (bassist with Cold Blood), the Pulsators’ Johnny Campbell on drums, and SRJC’s own Dr. Joel Rudinow on keyboards. Master of Ceremonies Bill Bowker has been programming American roots music in the Redwood Empire for many years and is host of the award winning Blues With Bowker show on KRSH-FM.

Ticket Outlets on SRJC’s Santa Rosa Campus:
Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Community Education office, 1990 Armory Drive (southeast corner of Elliott Avenue and Armory Drive), Santa Rosa or ordered by phone (with a Visa or Mastercard) at (707) 527-4372.  All phone orders will be held at Will Call.

Dr. Tu Weiming

Dr. Tu Weiming, Director of the Harvard Yenching Institute, has been a Professor of Chinese history and philosophy and of Confucian Studies in the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University since 1981. He is the first professor of Confucian studies at any English-language university – a position awarded to him in 1999. His lecture will focus on Confucian humanism as a spiritual tradition.  He will discuss the integration of the body and mind, fruitful integration between self and community, sustainable relationship between the human species and nature, and mutual responsiveness between the human heart and the way of Heaven to illustrate his belief that a comprehensive humanism, rather than secular humanism, is essential to human survival and congenial to human flourishing in our times.

Water, the most indispensable ingredient for all life on earth, has been reduced in the modern imagination to the supportive, but narrow role of a valuable but increasingly scarce natural resource, controlled and managed like any other commodity. Dr. Les Adler offers an alternative perspective designed to deepen the discussion beyond the limiting vision of water as only resource to an examination of its far more basic and traditional place in human thought as source of life and, in many ways, of the very meaning of being human. Dr. Les Adler, is professor of history at the Hutchins School of Liberal Studies at SSU.

Building on his first two lectures on Implementing the Necessary Changes without Killing Ourselves and Maintaining the Mighty Mo’ (Momentum, that is) Defining Change Success through a Shared Vision, he will address Complexity Science.

They are complex in that they are diverse and made up of multiple interconnected elements and adaptive in that they have the capacity to change and learn from experience.”

MLA style is changing in Fall 2009-do you know how you're going to remember all the new rules? But that's only one reason to come and learn how easy and fun it is to be a power Noodlebib user. Noodlebib is a web-based teaching tool provided for SRJC students and instructors that guides students through the process of creating a bibliography in either MLA, APA or Chicago/Turabian format. Unlike other citation generators Noodlebib guides students, at the point of need, through the complex decisions about citing source material, while encouraging proper note taking, paraphrasing and attribution. Various Noodlebib features allow for online collaboration while assessing students for learning. Come and learn how to become a power Noodlebib user so you can help promote the practice of ethical research in your classes, and hopefully avoid long hours spent grading poorly crafted citations. An active learning experience is planned and group discussion of the potentials of this tool will be encouraged.

04:AL:EE - Annual Del Monte Lecture: Running the Sahara
Dr. Jeff Peterson

In 2006-2007, Dr. Jeff Peterson served as expedition physician for the first successful attempt in modern times to cross the Sahara Desert on foot. This 4000-mile odyssey, which began in Senegal and ended in Egypt, involved 111 days of running across one of the world's most inhospitable climates. Given the extreme conditions, Dr. Peterson prepared himself to deal with virtually any medical issue that the runners might present. What he did not anticipate, however, was that those runners would not be his only patients, nor would they be the most challenging. In 2008 Dr. Peterson created Sahara Relief, after witnessing first-hand the desperate need for basic healthcare services in the region, especially in relation to mothers and their children. Dr. Peterson is an Assistant Professor of Surgery/Emergency Medicine at Stanford University Hospital in Stanford, California.

Funding for this program comes from the David Del Monte Lectureship Endowment through the SRJC Foundation.

04:AL:FF - Water Everywhere--but Not a Drop to Drink:  Amazon Rainforest Peruvian Water Project
Pam Chanter

About 20,000 people live in the 140 small communities which make up the Fernando Lores District of Peru. But despite the fact that this area is deep in the Amazon rainforest with an abundance of fresh water, nearly 50% of all deaths in the area are the result of unsafe drinking water. Almost all ground and surface water sources including the river are contaminated. Find out how residents of Sonoma County are working with villagers and a non-governmental organization (NGO) to develop a source of clean safe water to not only serve the inhabitants of Fernando Lores, but ultimately to create a model for other Amazon rainforest communities.

Co-Sponsored by the Environmental Forum.

*This is an Arts & Lectures and Environmental Forum event. Faculty members wishing to receive Flex Credit for this activity must briefly describe on their Flex Verification Form how the activity will benefit their students, department, or how it will apply to their academic activities.
