UW-Green Bay’s “Human Mosaic” series returns in calendar year 2013 with another dynamic array of programs. This time, the brochure is online through the Residence Life and American Intercultural Center home pages, which will save on printing costs and also make certain the information you access will be the most up-to-date available even with late schedule changes. Organizers say “Mosaic” promotes a wide array of campuswide diversity programs in a way they hope appeals to UW-Green Bay students, staff and faculty. The series examine various forms of diversity, including ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, and ageism, in several different formats, with speakers, panel discussions, conferences, book discussions, entertainment, and a cultural celebration. “The goal, of course, is to draw students — whose needs and interests are wide-ranging — to learning opportunities that will expand their understanding of people, particularly people who are unlike them. The program schedule includes both new and traditional events.” Review and download the Spring 2013 Human Mosaic brochure.
Willems invites participation, dialog on ‘Mosaic’ events
Jeff Willems of Residence Life is chair of the Campus Life Diversity Task Force and one of the primary staff members coordinating “Human Mosaic.” He shares the following message, and requests:
“Please take a few moments to read through the Spring 2013 brochure. Would any of these programs complement the work students will be doing in your courses? If so, would you consider encouraging participation, offering extra credit for attending, or substituting one of these programs for a class session? With prior notice, we would be happy to provide you with a list of students from your class(es) who attend a given program. Planning for the Fall schedule will be underway shortly. So please let us know what you would like to see or what you can offer. All of the offices that make up Campus Life (the American Intercultural Center, Counseling & Health, Residence Life, and Student Life) are happy to work with you in any way we can to enhance student learning at UW-Green Bay. If you have questions about any of the programs in the brochure or mentioned above, please contact me at the Office of Residence Life at 920-465-2962 or firstname.lastname@example.org.”
