Social Justice Forum: Ford Hall, After the Occupation

April 12th, 2016 · Comments Off on Social Justice Forum: Ford Hall, After the Occupation

You are warmly invited to join us at the next Social Justice Forum!

Ford Hall, After the Occupation:
A Conversation with Ford Hall Activists, Interim President Lynch, and You

Thursday April 21
12:00 PM
Shapiro Campus Center Multipurpose Room

Speakers:
Lisa Lynch, interim president
Ford Hall activists

Last Fall, campuses across the country were energized by a number of protests against campus racial inequity. Here at Brandeis, this culminated in the occupation of Ford Hall. The university and Ford Hall activists negotiated a multi-point agreement to address the concerns raised.

What has happened since? Join key participants in the occupation and resolution to learn how the agreement has been implemented, what changes have been made, and what still remains to be done.

The Social Justice Forum is a conversation series that encourages the Brandeis community to connect and discuss pertinent and compelling issues related to social justice on campus. In particular, we aim to do more than talk about social justice: we hope to organize to improve life on campus where we can. SJF is a collaborative effort of Graduate Student Affairs, the Office of the Chaplaincy, the Intercultural Center, the Student Union, and Library and Technology Services. Recent forum topics have included campus sustainability, transgender awareness, campus accessibility, and our conflict minerals policy.

To join the planning team, request more information, or to suggest topics, please contact Forum administrator David Wedaman wedaman@brandeis.edu.

Please forward this email to any you think may be interested! No RSVP required.

Library Email Notifications are Back!

March 18th, 2016 · Comments Off on Library Email Notifications are Back!

Did you ever wonder why the library stopped sending email notices about overdue materials? Around 18 months ago, LTS migrated to a new system that helps us better manage library operations and inventory. Unfortunately, we lost the ability to remind you of what you have checked out through email.

Thanks to the hard work of a team of LTS staff, we have that ability again. Starting March 22, emails will be sent reminding you about items borrowed from the library. This feature will help you keep track of what you have checked out, and increase communication between you and the Farber-Goldfarb Library.

Let us know what you think about this by emailing borrowing@brandeis.edu.
