A Call to Action from
 Dr. Zenobia Hikes
       Intentional Components
• According to the U.S. Department of
  Education, "violence and antisocial behavior
  are less likely to occur in schools with the
  following characteristics: positive school
  climate and atmosphere; clear and high
  expectations of all students; strong student
  bonding to the school; high levels of student
  participation and parent involvement; and
  opportunities to gain skills and develop
  socially."
        Enough is Enough Campaign
•   Campaign Goal:
    –   Provide model strategies for broad-based interventions addressing
        youth violence on the nation's campuses -- secondary and
        postsecondary alike through innovative partnerships between
        secondary and postsecondary students, parents, and
        administrators, as well as community partners.


• Focuses on three key components:
    – College and Universities
    – K-12 Schools
    – Community Partners
  Enough is Enough Campaign
• For the greatest national impact, we are encouraging
  campuses across the country to hold Enough is Enough
  Week activities April 5-9, 2010.

• Challenge to Region V and VI
   – Aim is to focus on the root causes of violence (i.e. poverty,
     bullying, mental health, single family homes, pressure to
     succeed at college) and protection (i.e. self-defense) rather than
     the symptoms (i.e. gun violence, etc).

Getting Involved in the Campaign
• Step One:
   – Please let us know of your interest in holding events at your
     school by sending an e-mail to sjacobson@pacific.edu. This will
     also ensure that you are kept up-to-date regarding the campaign
     and additional resource materials, as they are made available.
• Step Two:
   – Consider Involvement in the Region V and VI Enough is Enough
     Steering Committee
• Step Three:
   – Create a campus committee and visit the Enough is Enough
     website for more information. Region V and VI will
     soon have our own website to collect and share
      information.
          Recommendations
• Provide programs and communities that focus on the
  core causes of violence in society not just the
  symptoms

• Violence is such a big subject. Narrow down on 3-4
  key points you wish to focus upon

• Establish strong partnerships with K-12 and
  community colleagues

• Purchase: “In Search of Safer Communities:
  Emerging Practices for Student Affairs in Addressing
  Campus Violence”
          Recommendations
• Engage student ownership and program
  involvement
   – Have program “rise out of the students”
   – Educate students on program benefits

• Identify Campus Champion for the Initiative
             A Call To Action
“It is not enough for one campus or one community
   to take action; we are all responsible. This is not
   the work for the lone hero. We need every touch
   point for students to be involved: peers, mentors,
   parents, teachers, spiritual leaders, counselors,
   trusted adult figures and community partners. It
   will take all of us working together – our
   collective resilient spirit demanding that
   Enough is Enough”
   - Gwen Dungy (2009)
