The event is free and open to the public.

The event will be a discussion of how to observe and assess classroom behaviors that may be examples of incivility or may be more serious signs of mental health issues.

The panelists include:

  • Thomas Baez, director of counseling services

  • Dianne Hengst, director of student disability services
  • Panel moderator: Ann Eisenberg, professor of psychology and Honors College associate dean of faculty

The panelists will discuss:

  • What is the cause of incivility in the classroom?
  • When is this behavior more than incivility?
  • When does it become a mental health concern?

Attendees will learn about:

  • What to do about student behaviors that are concerning
  • UTSA resources
  • Who to consult
  • How to manage your stress in a challenging situation

The discussion will be based on real classroom scenarios. There also will be group discussion based on real classroom scenarios and an opportunity to ask questions of the panelists about situations that many may have encountered.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
