Dean of Students
Green Zone Training is for faculty, students and staff who want to learn more about the military affiliated student experience. The goal is to train members of the UNI community to know more about the issues and concerns faced by military affiliated students and to identify individuals who are available to support these students. These individuals are not expected to be experts who can “solve problems.” They are individuals who can lend a sympathetic ear and help the student veteran identify and connect with the appropriate resources. To register, contact Norman Ferguson.
Transgender Day of Remembrance occurs every year on Nov. 20 to memorialize individuals who are victims to anti-transgender violence. This year we remember 23 trans people who were killed in the United States. The majority of those were Black trans women. Join the LGBT* Center, Black Student Union and UNI Proud for a vigil in memory of these people who died this year.
The first LGBT(ea) Time, co-hosted by Black Student Union, will focus on anti-trans and anti-Black violence, as well as intersections of race and gender identity as they relate to Trans Day of Remembrance. Student leaders will speak and there will be time for group discussion and self-reflection. The event is open to anyone, but allies to LGBTQ+ students and students of color are encouraged to participate. Feel free to bring your lunch.
Take a military challenge. It could be trivia; it could be a physical challenge. Earn prizes.
RSVP by Friday, Nov. 4. Admission is free. Elegant attire or dress is requested.
Thomas R. Jones, Vietnam War veteran and author of the book, "Lost Survivor: The Novel of a Black Soldier's Journey to Vietnam and Back," will be available for a "meet and greet." Jones will be the guest speaker at the military ball.
This is a day long photo scavenger hunt. Pick up the list in the morning and return it by 4 p.m. showing the photos you have taken of the targets. The team or individual with the most points wins. A trivia question will be the tie breaker. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places.
The proceeds from the UNIVA bake sale will benefit the UNI Veterans Association
