The Office of the Provost and Center for Faculty Excellence are pleased to co-sponsor a series of informal gatherings for faculty to talk about courses they are teaching in each of the six ICC themes. Participants should come prepared to talk for 2 minutes about what they are doing to address the theme and also to hear how their colleagues are integrating the theme into courses. We anticipate mutual learning among faculty members that will enrich every ICC course. Faculty who aren’t yet teaching in a particular theme are also welcome to attend and gain insight into possibilities for their own courses. We encourage you to drop in for a few minutes before or after class or stay the entire time as your schedule allows. Refreshments will be provided.

A handful of ordinary folks -- teachers, students, and young parents among them -- heartsick at the escalating war despite mounting popular resistance to it, alarmed that government surveillance was spiraling out of control, having tried all sorts of peaceful protest and seeing no other way to effect change, decided to break into an FBI office.
