Session Details

Join us for a dialogue on the experiences of the Hispanic community and the challenges this community has faced and continues to face, as well as insights into how to best support the Hispanic community. Issues that will be addressed will include migration, immigration, healthcare, economics and racism.

Presentation will discuss the issues of interpersonal violence, specifically on college campuses. The focus will be on intimate partner violence (IPV) in honor of domestic violence awareness month (DVAM); however, it will also touch on some sexual violence and stalking since these crimes are often intertwined with IPV. We will discuss the importance of campus response to these issues, as well as the services and resources that should be available on college campuses.

Earth is facing a climate emergency. Although it seems to be a global dynamic somehow disconnected from local level issues, many of our daily actions have much to do with the crisis. Dr. Cadena-Gaitan will share some context about the particularities of the current climate emergency, and will discuss ways in which we can contribute to its solution, by engaging to take action.
