Join us for a workshop to raise our awareness of microaggressions


Please join us for a workshop to raise our awareness of microaggressions on Friday, May 29, 3:30 to 5:30pm at the Ethnic Cultural Center.  Everyone is welcome, and refreshments will be provided.

Microaggressions are brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults to the target person or group.

“All of us are socialized into the society, and it really is the height of arrogance or naiveté to think that any of us are immune from inheriting biases that are deeply embedded in this society and culture. They come out in ways that we’re not aware of,”

Sue, KUOW, April 2015.

Geography undergraduates presenting at Research Symposium

HolmbergThe Eighteenth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium is organized by the Undergraduate Research Program, which facilitates research experiences for undergraduates in all academic disciplines. The Symposium is a chance for undergraduates to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a larger audience. It also provides a forum for students, faculty, and the community to discuss cutting edge research topics and to examine the connection between research and education. The event includes poster and presentation sessions by students from all academic disciplines and all three UW campuses, plus invited guests.

Here’s a link to all the presentations from the undergraduates of the Geography Department:
