Resources re: Ferguson and more
Since the start of the new academic year, CME has been addressing questions and concerns from faculty, staff, and students regarding opportunities for engagement and support for DU community members who are concerned with the ongoing situation in Ferguson, Missouri, and similar events nationally. Understanding that events beyond our campus boundaries can and do have an impact on our day-to-day interactions at DU, CME has prepared a resource document (PDF) to share with our faculty, staff, and student affinity groups. We recognize that all members in our community might also benefit from a friendly reminder of some resources available on campus, and so wish to share this document more widely. We would greatly appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to read it and share with others in your networks.
The Center also hosted an impromptu, informal discussion for the DU community on Tuesday, November 25th, the morning after the Ferguson grand jury's decision. While almost 50 staff, faculty and students stopped by, we know that not everyone was able to attend. Look for additional Community Conversation opportunities in the winter term, to continue discussing the impact of local, national and global events on our campus communities.
