Supporting International and Military-Affiliated Students
The purpose of this presentation is to raise awareness of the experiences of international and military-affiliated (MAS) students. Both groups are an essential component of the diversity our campus community celebrates, and face unique challenges in their pursuit of higher education. Peers, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate and celebrate the contributions of these students, as well as learn useful knowledge and strategies for cooperation.
Disability as Diversity: Access in the Digital Age
The goal of this presentation is to raise awareness for ensuring accessible digital environments for individuals with disabilities. As colleges and universities advance their web presence and services through digital means, equal access to the electronic information is critical for universal inclusion. The presenter will introduce key concepts, how individuals with disabilities access the digital environment, and common barriers to accessing information. Attendees will walk away with a greater understanding of accessibility, their role in maintaining accessible environments, and tools and resources to enhance digital media.
The Last Negroes at Harvard: Book Talk
Join us as we virtually host Kent Garrett and Jeanne Ellsworth, authors of The Last Negroes at Harvard. The book chronicles "the untold story of the Harvard class of ’63, whose Black students fought to create their own identities on the cusp between integration and affirmative action."
Artes Liberales: Film Screening and Q&A with the Film Director
Premiered at the 2018 China Education Symposium at Harvard University, this documentary film explores the concept of “liberal arts education” and the perceptions of how international students from China feel about the liberal arts education system in the US. It brings a blend of interviews with professors, scholars, parents and students, discussing the academic challenges these Chinese students may face when they pursue higher education in the US. Dr. Chen Ceng, the film's director, will join us virtually to engage participants in a Q&A opportunity after the film screening!
