Teaching with Access & Inclusion Series (January 4–6)


Are you committed to supporting diverse students but still feel unsure of how to address questions of exclusion and belonging in your courses? Have local and global events in the last two years left you even more concerned about supporting marginalized students? The Teaching with Access and Inclusion (TAI) Program offers an exploration of critical frameworks and practical strategies towards creating more equitable educational experiences for all.

Systemwide Resources for Faculty, Researchers, and Grad Students, too: A Conversation

Presenters from seven university offices and the University libraries talk about sources of internal funding and other programs to support research and teaching, with opportunities to support collaboration with community, across disciplines and borders. Faculty, staff, and graduate students working with advisors who can support their work are invited; programs discussed are open to each of these groups. Registration is required.

Building Peace in Colombia: Women & Struggles for an Anti-Patriarchal World


 Join this dialogue about the experience (current and historical) of violence in the bodies of women and the feminization of structural violence. We will discuss the impact of US government policies on violence in Colombia and the proposals from the women of the People's Congress of the Colombian social movement to resist and build Popular Power and an anti-patriarchal society.

Emerging Immigration Histories of the Pandemic


We are still beginning to understand the full impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic on the United States, but it is already clear that the disease has disproportionately affected immigrant, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Many are at the frontlines of "essential" industries and have been at greater risk of infection and mortality. Some have been in industries that have shut down or greatly contracted during the pandemic. Others have been at the forefront of increased PPE distribution and vaccine development.
