This presentation and discussion will focus on opportunities for municipal policy and finance in an era of new mobility.
What happens to city finances when speeding and parking tickets radically decline?
Do new technologies create an opportunity for road user fees or congestion pricing to manage the street?
Should zero occupancy cars pay more?
PPPM Professor Rebecca Lewis is a national expert on these topics and this event will be part presentation and part group collective discussion.
The event is being hosted by the new UO Transportation Research Group, which aims to more purposefully cultivate an applied intellectual community of students and faculty on issues related to transportation in cities.
The Suicide Prevention Team and the University Counseling Center (UCC) offers this workshop for faculty, staff, and GEs. Partcipant learning objectives are to:
1. Develop skills in identifying and responding to students who may have thoughts of suicide.
2. Develop skills in how to engage students in a conversation about your concern and ways to seek help.
3. Develop knowledge of campus and community resources and how to make an appropriate referral.
If a department would like to schedule a suicide prevention workshop, please submit a request form here.
The Faculty & Staff section of the UCC website includes several additional online resources for helping students in distress.
The Student Suicide Prevention Team also offers a peer-to-peer workshop for students. Request a student workshop here.
