A number of college offices and student organizations have been thinking about ways to educate the campus, promote dialogue and offer opportunities for individuals to become involved on campus and in the community. This involvement is particularly important given the current social and political environment. A group of students, staff and faculty have worked together to develop some programs and initiatives designed to build community and create a sense of belonging (see below).
We encourage you to share these opportunities with colleagues and students in your office and/or department. Faculty members may also encourage student reflection through extra credit. We would also like student organizations, resident assistants, graduate assistants and others to consider attending events with members of their clubs, residents in their buildings or classmates in their undergraduate or graduate programs.
Students, staff and faculty can register for opportunities below. For more information on all events, visit Campus Life.
- Students, staff and faculty can register here for the Ignatian Family Teach-in for Justice. The deadline to register is Wednesday, October 14.
- Students can register here for the Race Project. The deadline to register is Sunday, October 18.
Programs are offered in partnership with the ALANA Student Center, Borders & Migration, Campus Ministry, Center for Urban Education, Contemporary Writers Series, Immersion East Side, New Buffalo Institute, New Student Orientation, Office Diversity & Inclusion, Office of Mission & Identity, Student Life, Urban Leadership Learning Community (ULLC) and the U.S.A. Diversity Committee.
