Upcoming Community Hours

Location and Time:
First Wednesdays 3:30 ­– 5 p.m.
IonE Commons, Room R350 of the Learning and Environmental Sciences Building (1954 Buford Ave., St. Paul)

Wednesday, Nov. 6th – Transforming Toxic Power Dynamics in Academia
With the reverberations of #metoo and other social justice movements like Black Lives Matter still rattling the Ivory Tower, we are learning how much more work and healing needs to happen to create more just and equitable dynamics in higher education, especially in advisor-advisee relationships, departmental culture and the need for sound mentorship. Join us for a conversation on how we can shift the cultures of power in academia to models of empowerment for graduate students and post-docs. RSVP here.

Wednesday, Dec. 4th –  Science, Spirituality and Our Identities
What does it mean for people from very different cultural and social backgrounds to be engaged in doing science? In embracing our complex and multi-faceted identities, how do we show up as scientists and academics that recognize multiple ways of knowing? Join us for conversation and community as we explore the richness that exists in within ourselves and around us. RSVP here.
