The "Arab spring," credited with beginning at the end of 2010, has involved civil uprisings in 18 countries, the removal of five heads of state, and waves of populist resistance in countries far from the Middle East, including our own. It's hard to keep track. There are few people better equipped to help make sense of it all than Stephen Zunes, PhD, one of the foremost U.S. scholars of Middle East affairs and of strategic nonviolent action.
Dr. Zunes will speak in Textor 102 on Wednesday, April 16, 7:00 p.m., on "Democracy Uprisings in the Middle East: Victories and Setbacks."

In the summer of 2002, Katharine Kittredge was doing research in the Hampshire Record Office (Winchester, UK) when she stumbled upon a profoundly moving document: an 1807 journal describing the life and sudden death of a young child. Intrigued, she embarked on a quest to learn more about the journal’s author, the Anglo-Irish diarist Melesina Trench (1768-1827).

The time has come to commemorate Latin@s as an integral part of this community through a public display of art. CULTURA and the Latino Civic Association are excited to commission an artist to paint a mural that celebrates our community's Latin@ culture. Latin@ culture is immensely diverse and we welcome submissions that honor a particular Latin American heritage, as well as submissions that encompass Latin@ culture in general or locally. A wide array of Latin@s live in Tompkins County that work, study and/or care for their families and each other. Latin@s have lived here for several generations, many are native to the US or have migrated here from other countries. The Latin@ Mural Project provides a platform for the message of Latinidad.
May 23: Submissions due by 1 pm
June 6: Winning proposal announced

The annual staff evaluation is a key component of the College's performance management process and provides a valuable opportunity for managers and their staff to review and discuss past performance, clarify job duties, set goals and establish expectations for the coming year. The review process will continue to follow the same overall approach and forms consistent with last year, and it is an expectation that all staff participate in the process.
