Cincinnati—Alcohol awareness speaker Mitch Crane will speak on
Monday, October 18, at two programs geared to University of Cincinnati
(UC) students. Crane's visit is UC Medical Center's fall program for
the university's "Just Community" initiative. His presentation is
scheduled for 12:30 p.m. in Room 7051 of the Medical Sciences Building,
231 Bethesda Avenue, on East Campus and 7:00 p.m. at Zimmer Auditorium
in Zimmer Hall on West Campus. The program is sponsored by the Medical
Center, Department of Athletics, Division of Student Affairs and Human
Resources, and Department of Student Life and is free for UC students,
faculty, and staff.
A former Pennsylvania judge, Crane uses
real-life examples and court cases to discuss the risks and
consequences of alcohol abuse. His program is funny, dynamic, and
realistic. Crane has traveled to more than 150 campuses across the
nation, talking about alcohol abuse, sexual assault, risk management,
and other issues that affect students.
UC's Just Community
initiative began in 1995 and is aimed at creating a community among the
diverse departments, divisions, students, faculty, and staff at the
university. Led by Mitchel Livingston, UC's vice president for Student
Affairs and Human Resources, the program is an effective outlet for the
discussion of values that affect members of our community.
