Join us in the Student Commons Building, Room 1401 for a campus town hall for a discussion on how universities (ours included!) can sustain intellectual integrity and standards of civil discourse in today's trying political times?
In an era of "fake news" and "alternative facts," and resurgent hate speech, how can our university community remain committed to truth and decency in academic dialogue?
This event is free and open to the public.

A big shout-out to absolutely everyone who came to our department's annual Holiday Party! Because of everybody's overwhelming generosity and support, we were able to raise OVER $600 in donations.
100% of the donations raised over the course of the evening go toward student scholarships, outreach projects, community-based research, local service work, and public programming through our department.
Couldn't make it but still want to donate?
