Last Minute Announcement: A Community Gathering

Earlier this week, Institute Community and Equity Officer Edmund Bertschinger emailed our community about the opportunity to discuss, reflect, and learn together about the events unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri. The events happening in Missouri influence what happens on our own campus and around the nation, and we appreciate the chance to talk and come to understand this situation better amongst our community.

If you are around today, and have some time, we highly encourage you to stop by and take part, however is most comfortable for you, in this gathering. Information is below.
