Shorewood clubhouse has new deal to benefit Classified Staff fund

The folks at Shorewood are offering a new frequent Faculty/Staff customer card in partnership with the Classified Staff Professional Development Committee. It’s a punch card where you will receive the ninth meal Free. The completed punch card will count toward a $5 donation to the Classified Staff Professional Development Fund.  This program replaces prior-year programs where Thursday lunch activity resulted in a donation to this fund.  Now you can come anytime and by using your punch card you will receive a free meal for yourself and help contribute to the professional development of our classified staff.


Bonus: Punch card earns Shorewood coupons
In addition, the Shorewood punch card holder receives two bonus coupons — one for a $5 round of golf and another for $1 off a beverage or side item.  The golf offer includes use of rental clubs at no charge.  Maybe you’ve never golfed but would like to try, and this is great opportunity to do so for very little cost.  (They can even provide a few “pointers and tips” on how to play the game – just ask Bill, Bo, Josh, or Rick up at Shorewood and they’ll be happy to get you hooked… or, rather, started). Additional punch cards are available in the clubhouse should you not be able to find yours or you use one up and want to use another.  The punch cards can also be used for small group and office gatherings!  Contact Shorewood at 465-2118, shorewood@uwgb.edu, and via our website at www.uwgb.edu/shorewood.

‘Got Privilege?  Get Wise!’

That’s the headline being used to promote two opportunities to hear race-privilege writer and lecturer Tim Wise on campus next Tuesday, April 26. He’ll present at 10 a.m. in the Phoenix Room and 4 p.m. in the Christie Theatre.

“Can privilege affect how you interact with students? If you have never considered how your race privilege can affect students, come listen to Tim Wise, a prominent anti-racist writer and educator who will address race and education and how one can better serve students and ultimately the institution.” Named one of the “25 Visionaries Who are Changing Your World” by Utne Reader magazine in 2010, Wise argues that racism is institutionalized, often subtly, so that even ostensibly race-neutral policies contribute to continuing inequality.

Racial privilege event has diverse sponsors
The April 26 professional development opportunity involving presenter Tim Wise is made possible through support from the Classified Staff Advisory Council, Academic Staff Programming, Human Resource Office, Office of Student Life, Campus Life Diversity Task Force, American Intercultural Center and the student organizations Southeast Asian Student Union, Women of Color, Organizacion Latina Americano and Student Government Association. If you have any questions, call ext. 2720.
