Step Up Step In BU for SAO Student Groups

Step Up Step In BU (SUSIBU) bystander training is a requirement by Student Activities Office for recognized student organizations accepting funding from the Allocations Board.  Each organization must send at lease one person with allocation responsibilities to a training session.


SUSIBU is an interactive bystander training session to raise awareness about sexual assault and what we as members of the BU community can do to help prevent it.  Sessions run approximately two hours in length.  Please be aware that because Step Up Step In BU training is interactive, there is a minimum number of participants necessary for the training to proceed as scheduled.  If the minimum number of participants required for the training session has not been met, you will be notified by e-mail in advance that the session has been canceled.  We apologize for this inconvenience, and ask that you please sign up for another session.  When you are attending a training session, please be sure to arrive on time – late arrivals may have to reschedule to attend another session.


Please contact the Sexual Assault Response & Prevention Center (SARP) at 617.353.7227 or sarp@bu.edu, if you have any questions or concerns about the SUSIBU training content.  Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at our training!


 

SUSIBU FAQs for SAO Student Group Leaders

 

 Do I need to register to attend a SUSIBU training?

  • Yes, please register for a SUSIBU session. Due to the interactive nature of SUSIBU, students have given us feedback that sessions with few participants are less engaging and worthwhile. Therefore, we will cancel sessions that do not have enough students registered. If you would like to request a SUSIBU session for your student group, athletic team, department, or group,  please visit http://www.bu.edu/sarp/how-we-prevent/.

 

What do I need to know about SUSIBU if I am in a Student Group Leader?

  • The University has required that all student groups seeking access to funding must participate in the SUSIBU program.  At minimum, one member of your executive board must attend training in order to access Allocations Board funding.  Please note that according to SAO you will not have access to funds until at least one member of your Executive Board completes the SUSIBU training during the fall semester. Please plan well in advance to complete this requirement by registering as soon as session dates are available.

 

If I am a member of a group but not on the Executive Board, will my attendance fulfill the requirement for the group?

  • In general, SAO requires an E-Board member to attend, however they understand not everyone is able to or feels comfortable attending this training.  The requirement can be flexible, when needed, as to who attends the training. Please contact the Student Activities Office with specific questions at 617.353.3635 or sao@bu.edu

 

If I am a member of multiple Student Groups, can my attendance fulfill the requirement for several groups?

  • No, your attendance can only count for one group. Each group should have a unique representative present.

 

If I have created a new Student Group for Spring semester will the group be able to complete the SUSIBU training and receive funding from the Allocations Board?

  • Yes, SARP holds SUSIBU sessions for newly formed SAO Student Groups at the beginning of Spring semester so that your group will have access to AB funds.

 

If I am not a part of a student group but still want to go through the SUSIBU training, how do I sign up?

  • We would love for you to attend a SUSIBU training! Please contact sarp@bu.edu

 

I still have more questions, who can I talk to?

  • For questions or concerns about the SUSIBU training content, please contact SARP at 617.353.7227 or sarp@bu.edu.  For further questions concerning the details of the Student Group requirement, please contact the Student Activities Office at 617.353.3635 or sao@bu.edu

RenMen Branches
Renaissance Men is Boston's acclaimed male vocal chamber ensemble; delivering impassioned interpretation of men's modal music spanning the centuries. In our third concert series of the 2014-2015 season, April 10th at St. Paul's Brookline and April 11th at Old South Church's Gordon Chapel in the Back Bay, we will take you on a journey from the church to the tavern - and everywhere in between. After a deeper understanding of where we came from locally, these concerts will survey some of the men's music heritages from across the globe. With a particular focus on the German Männerchor tradition, you may want to pay attention to our program booklet for translations, or bring a German friend! We will perform haunting and impactful works of Grieg, Rachmaninoff, Carillo, Reinberger, Strauss, Schubert, and Reger. To incorporate the British singing society tradition, we will also be presenting the Six Choral Folk Songs by Gustav Holst, of which the transcendent "I Love My Love" is included. Our program will conclude with a set of drinking songs from times past and present. Join us for a concert or two you will not soon forget!

Barrington Coffee and Donuts at CloverBLV

Join Barrington Roasters for a coffee tasting of their latest coffee: the Barreiro from Brazil. We'll make homemade donuts.

---

Caramelized plum transitions lively to green peppercorn with a briny finish. 

The Barreiro is produced by the Alves family in the municipality of Minas Gerais, Brazil. They call their farm Sitio da Laje. It comprises approximately 75 hectares and they have owned and operated it for over forty years. This is atypical topography for Brazil as it is far more rugged and mountainous here. Their coffee is all hand picked and processed on the farm. Father Varnei and sons Elias and Estevan oversee the picking of the harvest. Their wives oversee the drying and sorting.

Their focus is on the Yellow Catuai varietal and their explorations into natural processing have yielded some surprising results. With the Barreiro we get lush plumb stone fruit, but it also expresses a lively acidity. Our roast treatment is geared toward finding the balance of fruity grip and caramelization. We strongly encourage you to try this as a straight, single origin espresso.

Boston Jewish Food Conference

Brought to you by


With 200 people, our conference will foster new dynamics and connections within the Jewish community by utilizing food and farming to discuss the intersections of justice, sustainability, and culture against a background of Jewish traditions and contemporary life.

  • 1:00-5:30 Multiple workshop sessions, including in the kitchen and classroom
  • 5:30-7:00 Community Shuk (marektplace) featuring Do-It-Yourself sessions, cooking demonstrations, advocacy opportunities and tabling by community agencies and organizations.


Our workshops will explore the many factors that impact what we eat: individual choices, congregational and community affiliations, and the development of public policies. In particular, we are eager to explore the interplay between the variables at each of these levels so that we can understand the basic foundation of our diets.  Our Jewish identities and values are similarly influenced by factors at multiple levels: the Jewish community groups that exist where we live, or the interpersonal relationships we form with Jewish and non-Jewish individuals. Our identities influence how we choose to consume particular foods, based on environmental impact, rabbinic supervision, cultural tradition, and/or public policies. 

We seek to recognize that the foods we eat are not always a product of free choice; constraints like economic and social inequalities prevent many people from having the freedom to make food choices. As Jewish food consumers, we hope to engage with these issues and learn where we can fit in to the work being done to create a more just and equitable food system.

Vadim Kolpakov. Soul of Gypsy Guitar.

Solo concert-Vadim Kolpakov, Boston MA
Vadim, is the one of the most prominent and renowned Russian-Romany (Gypsy) 7-string guitarists in the world, he is also vocalist and dancer as well as the founder and artistic director of the US based ensemble Via Romen which has performed to glowing reviews across North America and has established itself as the continent's premier Russian-Romany (Gypsy) group. 

The Romany (Gypsy) musical legacy is most notably characterized by its clever synthesis of known musical genres with the lesser known or unknown.

His music and dances rooted in Russian-Romany tradition, enchant audiences with intricate improvisations, catchy tunes, and flashy footwork. Drawn from a vast repertoire originating in Eastern and Western Europe and enriched by jazz and Latin styles, his music is often deeply emotional.

Hairspray
Hairspray is not only a great musical but is also a social commentary on the injustices of parts of American society in the 1960s. Hairspray with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman and a book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan, is based on the 1988 John Waters film Hairspray that stared Divine. The songs of the musical include 1960s-style dance music and Motown rhythm and blues.

Mommybites Boston is proud to offer Boston-area moms support groups launched in NYC in 2008!

Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor and Founder of Seedlings: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting. 

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.


What Mommybites Moms are Saying:

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes...

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

World Premiere of "Lollipops for Breakfast!"
About the Show: You can't have lollipops for breakfast! Sylvie decides she's going to break that rule, even if it means she has to make her own amazingly perfect lollipop from scratch. Come along as she and her trusty pet bird search for missing ingredients, wrestle with giant candy machines, and get lost in a magical pop-up cookbook. 'Lollipops for Breakfast' is a wildly imaginative ode to children's boundless creativity. The performance, told entirely without words, features multiple styles of puppetry, original music, acrobatics, and lots of audience participation. About the Performer: Bonnie Duncan has blended puppetry, dance, and physical theatre in surprising and delightful ways for the past 14 years. Her work has been described as 'an artful world of silent dreams, mime, and dance' (Austin Live Theatre). She has most recently been working as one half of They Gotta Be Secret Agents with Tim Gallagher. Their show, Poste Restante, continues to tour worldwide, winning 'Best Touring Show of 2011,' Austin, TX; Best of the Fringe, San Francisco, 2009; and a nomination for Most Innovative Show at Prague Fringe Festival. She is currently touring her solo family show, Squirrel Stole My Underpants, throughout the US to delighted audiences. She just celebrated show #100! Prior to her work as a Secret Agent, Bonnie was a company member of Snappy Dance Theater for 8 years, performing sculptural, acrobatic dances nationally and internationally. Her movement was called 'breathtakingly simple' and 'delightfully crafty' by the Boston Globe. When Bonnie is not performing, she is the mother of three young children, an avid runner, and vegan cupcake maker.

Sacred Songs with Cantor Randall Schloss and Deepte Navartna
A fascinating program sharing the sacred music of two faith traditions. Deepti Navaratna is known for her 'particularly lovely and bewitching voice' (Boston Globe, 2010) and rare mix of classical wisdom, expressivity and virtuosity. From South Indian classical repertoire to avant garde contemporary compositions, she displays a unique versatility that is distinctly her own. Deepti is the first South Indian classical musician to be awarded a merit scholarship and cash prize to study World Music and Contemporary Improvisation at the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music. She was the first South Indian classical vocalist to be selected to represent India in a month-long residency at the Music Omi International Music residency for which she was awarded the Rajshekar Parikh Fellowship as well. After a varied career in music as a classical singer both on the opera stage and in concert, as a teacher of voice and music theory, and as a choral conductor/music director, Cantor Schloss began his journey into the world of Jewish music as a singer and composer. In 2006, he composed his first extended setting of Shabbat evening liturgy, Avodat Hayom, combining traditional liturgy and modern poetry with musical elements of eastern European nusach and chazzanut, Israeli and Sephardic folk music, classical and twentieth century Reform repertoire and contemporary pop and jazz. He received his investiture and a Masters Degree in Sacred Music from the School of Sacred Music at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music from Cornell University in Ithaca and a Master of Music Degree in Vocal Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music.
