Human Trafficking and Difficult People are Focus of Two SWOSU Sessions


Presentations on human trafficking and dealing with difficult people are the focus of two IMPACT events taking place October 9 and 10 on the Southwestern Oklahoma State University campus in Weatherford.

SWOSU’s New Student Orientation is sponsoring the sessions for all SWOSU students.

On Tuesday, October 9, at 12:30 p.m. in Room 104 of the Gen. Thomas P. Stafford Center, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation representative Nicholas Rizzi will discuss human trafficking. Rizzi, who is on the OSBI Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, will speak on the signs of human trafficking, who is at risk, and ways of prevention. Lunch will be provided to students on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Then, on Wednesday, October 10, at 12 noon in Stafford Center Room 104, SWOSU Dean of Students Cindy Dougherty will demonstrate effective ways of dealing with difficult people and how to recognize a difficult person. Lunch will again be provided to students.

IMPACT is a series of events and presentations to help students succeed in all facets of life. The goal of the series is to equip students to be successful inside and outside of the classroom.
