Join Q&A for an LGBTQ faculty/staff/student lunch

Queers and Allies (Q&A) is happy to announce that we will be hosting an LGBTQ faculty/staff/student lunch on Wednesday, January 28th from 12:45pm – 2:00pm in the LaForce Seminar Room (LAF 121). For those of you who haven’t joined us before, this is a great opportunity for LGBTQ-identified faculty and staff to connect with students outside their respective departments. This event is not catered, but you can easily grab food from Ross Dining Hall before walking over to the seminar room.

Q&A is Middlebury’s only LGBTQ student organization. If you’d like to join our mailing list for updates and announcements about LGBTQ-related events on campus (including future lunches!), please contact us at queersandallies@middlebury.edu or check out our website at http://sites.middlebury.edu/queersandallies/.

Please Mark Your Calendars for Gensler 2015

Dear Members of the Middlebury Community,

The mass incarceration of Black and Latina/o populations and the punitive policing of poor communities is one of the most important issues the United States faces today. In order to promote campus conversations about these issues, the Program in Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies and the Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity are co-sponsoring the annual Gensler symposium with the theme of “Punishing Bodies: Feminist Responses to the Carceral State.”

The symposium brings a very exciting line up of speakers and events to campus culminating in an all day conference on April 17th with internationally recognized scholars speaking on everything from policing migrant communities to the embodiment of masculinities in Chicago gangs.

We encourage you to mark your calendars now. You can find out more at the symposium website: go/gensler2015

Please contact us if you have any questions or ideas regarding this year’s theme.

Friends of International Students Host Program

Dear Faculty and Staff–

International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) invites you to become a part of our Friends of International Students Host Program for our incoming February students.

The program provides a terrific opportunity for you to meet people from around the world, and to connect with a student in an individual way.
It’s a friendship program. Contacts between student and family are arranged on your own terms.
Most of the students participate in our program, so we always need new hosts.

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of serving as a host to an international student, please contact Carolyn Dahm, ISSS Administrative Coordinator, by email at isss@middlebury.edu or by telephone at 443-5858. (Your email reply will go directly to the ISSS Office mailbox. In either your email or phone message, please provide your name, email address, and phone number.)
To learn more about the Friends of International Students (FIS) Host Program and to fill out the FIS Host Questionnaire , visit our website at http://www.middlebury.edu/international/isss/fis.
