Look to this page for news of upcoming engagement activities, including training opportunities, teach outs (short learning experiences focused on a current event or issue), online courses taught by faculty peers and on-campus conferences that draw faculty, staff, students and alumni together to explore such topics as the future of higher education.
Faculty and staff from U-M and Notre Dame have come together to present “Listening to Puerto Rico,” a free online global learning teach-out offered jointly by the two institutions.
Leaders who are actively engaged with the public will discuss how they are working to address today’s critical social justice issues. They’ll share perspectives on how students, staff, and faculty can most effectively build partnerships outside the university to drive social change. Following the panel will be a series of working discussions on DEI-focused engagement issues. Sponsored by the National Center for Institutional Diversity; the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; the Office of Academic Innovation; and the Alumni Association. The event will be held Oct. 8 from 2-5 p.m. at Palmer Commons.
The event is free but please RSVP by Sept. 24
We encourage U-M alumni and friends near the State Capitol to join us for the Wolverine Caucus, now in its 25th year. Enjoy fellowship, forums, and a special address from professor Michael Traugott.
