What: Omnibus is a monthly conversation about the Library, Dowling, and Long Island.
The Listening Tour of South Shore History is an interactive map to guide you through the local history topics discussed on our Omnibus podcast.
On this episode we are joined by Melissa Theodorakatos, president of the Dowling Gay-Straight Alliance, and Dr. Suzanne Johnson, professor of Psychology. Our topic is the college's new campaign to End the Hate. This is an educational initiative to address bullying at the college and adult level. During the podcast we discuss cyber-bullying and the negative consequences of social media services like FaceBook and Twitter. We also list places you can go to for help, both at Dowling and on Long Island.
The End the Hate campaign starts this fall at Dowling and will continue with a symposium on campus in spring 2012.
