Trauma-informed yoga is a research proven way to help survivors of sexual trauma and those experiencing vicarious trauma heal from their trauma symptoms. It is a combination of focused breathing and mindfulness skills, as well as healing poses. Trauma-informed yoga is an opportunity to learn how to work with your own discomforts. It is a judgement free zone where every participant is able to go at their own pace and skill level. The practice is not meant to be a high cardio or strength training workout, it focuses on grounding, breathing, and mindfulness with comfortable, stretching poses. Our instructor, Liz Jordon, is certified in trauma-informed practice. The instructor does not leave her own mat and will never touch participants to adjust their pose throughout the practice. It is a space where your body is entirely yours. Students, faculty, and staff of all gender identities at all levels of healing from trauma are welcome and can benefit from trauma-informed yoga.

We mainly wish to promote awareness of table tennis while bringing inspiration to on-campus students (especially freshmen,) signifying a brighter upcoming Lehigh experience. For more information, please check the sign-up form attached below. We named this event “Intra-Dorm Contest” because we want to pair participants from the same residence hall to minimize the possibility of cross-contamination. For example, players at Farrington cannot sign up for the event at Brodhead. Furthermore, our event allows only two designated players at a specified time slot, which does not concern the existing indoor policies. Our table tennis contest is more of a self-hosted event formed by whichever two players are competing at a given moment. When Lehigh is fully reopened, we will have a final inter-dorm contest to determine the undisputed Ping Ping Champion across all residence halls. Players are randomly paired up from the same hall. Each match should take at most 30 minutes, which we will enforce as the signup sheet's time slot duration. A brief warm-up rally is allowed before the actual match. Each match consists of at most 3 games, so the first player to win 2 games wins the match. The current tournament employs an elimination style. Our final match in each dorm will use a first to 3 formats (at most 5 games.) That will give a 45 minutes time slot for the finalists to sign up.

Throughout the weekend: Virtual raffles Auction sign ups online Pre sales Teams can donate Mask fundraiser Design masks that can be sold before and during relay online FOR ALL EVENTS DESIGNATED IN PERSON: -we would like to discuss how to make events on Lehigh's campus in person. Every event would uphold the current state and university COVID-19 regulations (such as restricting the number of people at the live event, wearing masks, social distancing, hawk watch, etc.). All in person events will have sign up sheets and once capacity is met it is met. All in person events will have the option to tune in over zoom so that all can participate. If for some reason in person events cannot take place, all events will proceed via zoom. The location would be anywhere outside to include a higher number of participants, hopefully the front lawn or the zoellner courtyard as locations on campus to use. You will notice below that we have decided to split relay into a weekend event to allow for in person events to be socially distanced rather than having a ton of people in one place for many hours at a time. Friday, April 16th: 4:00pm: opening ceremony IN PERSON (front lawn) First lap of the relay Maybe a performance or an event 5:00pm: Guest Speaker ZOOM Either a survivor locally or a famous survivor This night: Relay night at a local restaurant willing to have a portion of proceeds go to us Molly’s drink special???

Monday, April 19, 2021 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm

Diner en Blanc is a Student Outreach tradition. It is a Lehigh spin on the Parisian tradition of a community dinner. The Lehigh tradition usually consists of having a mystery location which students are bused to. This year, the event will need to be reimagined to fulfill the celebration vibe that this event entails, but respect the Covid protocols. Last years theme was "A Year in Review", since most people would rather not review this year, we plan to shift the theme to be "Completion" in order to represent the end of a very dark period in American history. We hope to keep the format from previous years where there will be one community speaker, one student speaker, and a speech from the Student Senate all about the event and around the theme. Since previous years had about 500 students planned to be shuttled to a secret location, the event will really need to be reimagined. The Student Outreach committee has several ideas for this event, and we would love to get the CEAG's input. "People are tired of zoom, they'll need to want to go online" This was a quote from a Student Outreach member and sums up one of the most important points we are taking into account for this event. We would like to reimagine the large community dinner the diner en blanc is into a more pod versions, so groups of students/faculty/staff can sign up and celebrate together. This would functionally look like groups of students, individual faculty/staff members, signing up and being given a box with instructions and other goods. The instructions would had information on how to connect to how the event will be run for every group. While the most normal idea would be to have a virtual video ceremony to go with this event, our committee believes students will find that annoying or boring. To rethink this idea of a virtual ceremony, we think it would be awesome to possibly utilize the school radio station and have the speeches and music run from there. Students would be able to stream the event from their phone or computer and certain large locations can have speakers. Since the radio would be a spin on streaming communication, we feel that it would be a great way to keep a little bit of surprise in Diner en Blanc. While groups of students can sign up to celebrate together, we want to ensure everyone is following proper social distancing, so we might as the large grass areas on campus be laid out in a grid for groups of 5 to each fit in. These locations can then be signed up for celebrating the event. The other things to be in the boxes are still trying to be decided on. There are several types of things Student Outreach would like to be in the box. First would be a memorial type of object: a piece of wood that says Lehigh, stickers, mugs. Another would be a type of celebratory gift: sparkling cider, champaign (21+ and not difficult of layout), sparklers. Something special: we are still trying to figure out ideas. While a lot is changing this year, we hope that diner en blanc can still be an engaging, unifying event for the whole Lehigh community. I look forward to meeting with the CEAG. Thank you, Declan Hosted by: Student Senate XXXII Additional Information can be found at: https://lehigh.campuslabs.com/engage/event/7067538

Our annual speak out for survivors of gender based violence to share their stories in a safe and supportive space.

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Lehigh's Office of Gender Violence Education and Support is piloting a new Sex Communication workshop series. We are currently looking for student participants. Culturally Competent Sexual Communication is awareness, attitudes, knowledge, and skills that work towards optimal interactions during sex through effective communication and the ability to understand and know the person(s) with whom you are going to have sex. Culturally humble sex communication is a lifelong process because competence with one sex partner does not mean competence with another. Participants are eligible to receive a $20 Amazon gift card for each workshop they participate in. The workshops are currently scheduled for the following dates and times: Workshop 1: Attitudes and Beliefs about Sexuality Thursday, April 8th 5-6 pm Workshop 2: Sexual Self Exploration Tuesday, April 13th 5:30-6:30 pm Workshop 3: Sexual Knowledge Tuesday, April 27th 5:30-6:30 pm Workshop 4: Sexual Communication Thursday, May 6th 4:30-5:30 pm After each workshop you will be asked to complete a brief assessment in order to provide feedback.
