Email is a necessity for every business workplace but writing email well is not a skill that most people have been taught. When you’re at a desk and under time pressure to get work done, you usually don’t pause and review the rules for effective business writing.
This 2-part email workshop will give you helpful tips so that you can compose your message content quickly, and then edit it into a clear, effective, and professional email for your reader. We’ll be discussing guidelines to organize your message for your reader’s benefit and work on examples in small groups and individually. Take a look at the email you write and receive: What factors make email hard to write? Hard to understand? Easy to follow and remember? That’s where we’ll start!

Racism is not a thing of the past. Discrimination is still a fact of life for many people of color and immigrants, especially in housing, employment and education. One way of taking the first steps in creating a community where everyone feels safe, valued and respected is by engaging in dialogue about race and racism. The Talking Circles on Race and Racism are designed to serve as a discussion tool to increase community communication about race and racism and help individuals increase their comfort level in addressing issues of racism in their own lives.
Ithaca College students are invited to participate to come together in a safe environment to share feelings, thoughts, and experiences in a sustained, confidential, frank dialogue around issues of race and racism. The Diversity Awareness Committee will initiate a Student Talking Circle facilitated by professionals from the Multicultural Resource Center. The Talking Circle will be made up of 16 racially and ethnically diverse people who will meet once a week for five consecutive sessions to self-reflect, share experiences, and learn from others’ perspectives and attitudes.

Contributed by Carol Hansen on 09/24/2015
Daniel Lezcano Arguella grows organic shade grown coffee on lands immediately adjacent to Amistad International Park, an area that holds 2-1/2 per cent of the world’s biodiversity. Organic bananas provide the shade for his coffee plants, creating a polyculture which supplies the ASPROLA community organization, who then process the coffee and bananas, and make yoghurts and jams and run an ecotourism operation as well. Daniel will speak about the process of producing organic coffee in contrast to non-organic coffee, and will provide a taste comparison. Come try some of his coffee!
