Responding to the Troubled Student

We hope you will join us in Nevins Theater on Thursday, April 6, from 1:15 until 2:30 p.m., when representatives from Public Safety, Wellness Center, and the Office of the Dean of Students will present a program on how to respond to the dangerous, disruptive, and distressed student. While it is generally known that colleges and universities are considered safe places, a wide continuum of violent or potentially violent, disruptive and disturbing acts can and do occur.

Participants will receive an overview of specific suggestions and techniques when responding to these types of stressful incidents. This practical workshop will list disruptive and dangerous behavioral examples and specific suggestions and intervention techniques to help faculty/staff better assess, intervene and manage the problematic behavior.

At the Cohen Gallery: A Day's Work, through April 1

A Day's Work: Rebekah Modrak and Nick Tobier, March 1- April 1, 2017

Closing Reception April 1, 6-8pm

Rebekah Modrak (Class of '92) and Nick Tobier present 'A Day's Work' at the Cohen Gallery, March 1-April 1, 2017


The joint show features distinct but related bodies of work that serve to challenge viewers' social expectations. 'A Day's Work' closes April 1.

Rebekah's installation, Re Made Co., is a multimedia artistic intervention satirizing the brand narrative of Best Made Co., a New York City-based company that sells painted axes and a range of 'outdoor' consumer products using calculated and false associations with manual labor. Evolving since its launch in July 2013, Re Made Co. works across genres, including Fluxus art whose distribution channels circumvent and subvert the gallery system; critical design that challenges the values of design practice; and activist art or 'culture jamming' that attempts to introduce a critical discourse into passive consumption. Re Made Co. at Cohen Gallery will create a storefront space on Main Street in Alfred with both the products and the critique of luxury consumer culture that seeks to appropriate the work of labor.

Nick will conduct performances in the gallery and community during the month of March. He will present, 'Marvelous Guests,' which lends new working conditions and meanings to several trades by inviting professionals to conduct their business in unusual locations. As a guest. Each encounter will produce its own forms of communication on location.

Both artists taught at the School of Art Design at Alfred University before joining the faculty at the Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where they currently live and work.
