Last Chance for Lunch and Learn on Assessment Day, Tuesday, February 21

submitted by

Faculty & Staff are invited to an Assessment Day Lunch & Learn tomorrow, Tuesday, February 21st from 11:30am – 12:30pm in the Augsburg Room, Christensen Center.

Don’t spend your assessment day sitting alone eating stale leftovers in your cold, isolated office space! Admit it, that meal you made a week ago didn’t taste that good the first time around – how’s it going to taste after being nuked in a microwave? Now imagine what a lunch prepared by the world’s finest Michelin-star winning chefs would taste like! Probably a lot like the free lunches we’re giving out, if I had to guess.

Enjoy a free lunch and a chat with colleagues while we discuss how to build early and advanced student presentation skills with Communications, Film and New Media Studies department member Kristen Chamberlain, and take a look at recent data on students’ oral communication skills with recent data from the assessment committee. Let’s fill this assessment day with laughter and love (for free lunches).

Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day | Tuesday, February 2

submitted by

Reproductive Freedom Lobby Day

Minnesota State Capitol: 75 Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, St Paul, MN

Minnesotans made their voices heard by electing the first pro-reproductive freedom state legislature in decades. But the work isn’t done, now we must show up louder and stronger than ever to push decision makers to pass bold legislation protecting and expanding abortion access in Minnesota.

Our Leadership Agenda for Abortion Access creates a clear path, but legislators need to hear from you that reproductive rights, health, and justice is still a priority for you. On lobby day, you will have the opportunity to ask your representative to:
– Repeal Minnesota’s Unnecessary Restrictions to Abortion
– Protect Patients from Post-Roe Attacks
– Ensure Equitable and Affordable Access to Abortion Care

You will get the resources and training you need to be equipped to talk to your representatives. You’ll also get to hear from leaders and healthcare providers across the state who are fighting for reproductive freedom. The day will culminate with a rally in the rotunda.
