There have been many questions around student employment, and we wanted to provide an update as the academic year comes to a close.  For this summer, students can be hired and/or remain in their positions if the work can be performed remotely.  Newly hired students, who have not previously worked at the college, will still need to go through the new hire process via an NSEP session which will be presented remotely until further notice. These sessions will become available for registration beginning Monday, May 18th.

Please join us for a book club focused on the topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion created through the Women’s Mentoring Network. The purpose of the book club is to engage people in conversations surrounding diversity, and how we can make a more inclusive campus. The books may not all relate explicitly to higher education, and the discussions can take us beyond the university lens. Text is used to give everyone a common-ground on which to begin these conversations, and we will look into texts that explore different facets of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Sad News for Our Campus Community

Contributed by News on 05/10/20 

View printable version

Dear Campus Community:

We write today with tremendous sadness in sharing the news that Sue-Je Gage, an associate professor of anthropology who had served for the past year as Faculty Advocate in the Office of the Provost, died unexpectedly this morning. We learned of this news earlier today and needed to respect the needs of Sue-Je’s family before notifying our campus community.

Our hearts break with this loss, and our thoughts are with her family, friends, colleagues, and students. On this Mother’s Day, our spirits are especially heavy as we reflect on what this loss means for Sue-Je’s daughter, mother, and sister.
