The Clothesline Project

Join the UNI Women's and Gender Studies Program in participating in the Clothesline Project. In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, WGS will host t-shirt decorations to raise awareness for violence against women. People who have been affected by violence, be it first-hand or otherwise, are invited to decorate a t-shirt with their thoughts, feelings and supportive messages surrounding the subject. These shirts will then be hung on a clothesline for all to see.

Majors in Minutes

Majors in Minutes is a way for students to learn more about majors (or minors) that they might be interested in. Similar to speed-dating, juniors and seniors will represent their major at tables where other students can sit down and visit with them to find out more information. Students are able to visit as many or few tables (majors) as they wish during the event. This is a come and go event open to all UNI students.

Statistical software overview

As part of the Center for Educational Transformation's "Ed Research Afternoons" series, Mark Jacobson from UNI's Statistical Consulting Center, will provide an overview of various available software packages for analyzing quantitative data. Participants will also have the opportunity to consult with Jacobson regarding their quantitative analysis and software questions and issues.

Diversity Colloquium: Race, Poverty and the Criminal Justice System: Protecting the Rights of the Accused in the St. Louis Area

Joshua N. Canavan will present 'Race, Poverty and the Criminal Justice System: Protecting the Rights of the Accused in the St. Louis Area.' Canavan works for the Arch City Defenders, a nonprofit that provides 'holistic legal advocacy and combat(s) the criminalization of poverty and state violence against poor people of color.' It does this through providing legal services to the indigent and also through policy-oriented lawsuits, including a recent challenge which alleges that several municipalities in St. Louis County have conspired to run debtors' prisons. The organization has been especially active in pushing for legal change in the St. Louis area since the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson.
