    Youth Suicide Contagion: Implications for Colleges and Universities

    in Health

    Presenter: Madelyn S. Gould, Ph.D., M.P.H. ,  Professor of Epidemiology in Psychiatry, CUMC/ Research Scientist, NYSPI.  Contact information: gouldm@nyspi.columbia.edu


    Moderator:  Alison Lake, M.A., Research Scientist and Project Director, NYSPI


    Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among college students in U.S., with approximately 1,100 students dying by suicide each year.  In addition, approximately 1% of undergraduates attempt suicide and 6-9% seriously consider suicide each year. It is recognized that youth suicide is influenced by many factors; research has indicated that one such factor is suicide contagion, a phenomenon to which teenagers and young adults are particularly vulnerable. Suicide contagion, sometimes referred to as suicide modeling, is the process wherein the direct or indirect knowledge of one suicide facilitates the occurrence of a subsequent suicide. There is ample evidence to support concerns about suicide contagion/modeling; several sources of this evidence will be presented.  Given the prevalence of suicide on college campuses, and the associated risk of contagion and clustering, it is imperative that colleges develop effective and comprehensive postvention strategies. This blogtalk will present specific postvention strategies that colleges and universities can use to limit the risk of further suicides through contagion.

    Are Universities On Their Death Bed?

    in Education

    Bookstores are quickly becoming a thing of the past . . . just a distant memory . . . although this saddens me, it also causes me to reflect on how our access to information is rapidly changing.  No longer must we hunt and peck with card catalogs, microfiche or encyclopedias, the world of information is at our fingertips.  This not a novel revelation; however, it is reasonable to assume that our educational institutions may be next on the chopping block.  


    If colleges/universities exist to educate the next generation, what would become of them if the opportunities for education were made available online . . . for free?  Would class warfare subside if any with access to the internet could access any school's curriculum?  The future is now, my friends. . . did you know that MIT offers virtually the entire catalog of courses online . . .for free.  Check it out:   http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm  or https://www.edx.org/ with courses from Harvard, Berkeley, MIT, and University of Texas.


    So . . . with access to knowledge available to ALL . . .with no boundaries based on race, color, or creed . . . is the game changed?  Not yet, because these courses come with no "piece of paper" to validate the student's participation and completion.  They are presently for personal edification only . . . how long can that last?  If the information (including lectures, required reading, and coursework) is available and the goal of education is . . . education . . . is the formal education system, as we know it, on its death bed?


    Matt discusses this and more . . .

    Is Anti-semistism Alive in American Universities?

    in Self Help

    My special guest today is  Kenneth L. Marcus the President and General Counsel of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law.  Has been re scheduled to appear at a later time, when we will be discussing  Anti Semitism that students face today in American Universities. The growing hate for Jews and Israel. But most important, we will see what one man is doing in his quest to "Securing the civil human rights of Jewish people and advancing justice for all"


    What happens in the university is not contained within the campus. If nothing will be done to stop the hate,  it is soon to spread all over our country.


    The question to ask is: What can I do to help save America from disaster?


    Securing the civil human rights of Jewish people and advancing justice for all!!!

    Why are Secular Universities Closing Philosophical Programs (w. J. Andrew Payne)

    in Religion

    Secular universities are closing their classical philosophy programs. But why? In a day and age where there is more confusion than ever, shouldn't universities be compelled to teach students how to think? Furthermore, it may be said that Christian universities like Liberty University, Biola University, and other likeminded schools will be the torch-bearers not only of Christ...but of logic and philosophy, as well. In this episode, we will interview philosopher J. Andrew Payne and get his take on the apparent takeover of proper thinking.

    EXPLANATION OF WHAT MUSLIMS WANT AND BELIEVE

    in Social Networking

    "Our people who are educated in your colleges and universities, our technicians and engineers of all kinds, why should they go and make a way for their own people as a nation, build and construct a government for their people as your fathers did for you when they crossed the Atlantic? They may be a little lazy and want to start at the top first, but you were not able to start (at the top). You have put it in their minds that they cannot go for themselves.


    How educated were your fathers when they crossed the Atlantic and started working for their freedom? They were not wise politicians and senators as you are today, but, nevertheless, they kept digging and turning the soil, felling trees, pacing the country for a place for themselves. Today they have made a nation. " Messenger Elijah Muhammad
