These are past events, they have already happened, don't try to go to them! Take a look at our Upcoming Events page for a current list.

Please join your fellow students, staff and faculty members as we reflect upon and recommit to our shared values of unity and peace.  Killings of black men, LGBTQIA Latinos, police officers and too many others continue throughout our country as we struggle with our engagement of difference.  Let us unite in solidarity across our identities to grieve with respect and begin to heal with hope. We will gather this Friday, July 29  from 12pm-1pm in Gelman Library 702.  Our time together will feature a Quaker tradition of silence, sharing and relationship building.  All of us at the MSSC hope to see you there.

Is my course accessible? What do I need to know about student privacy? Can an online exam truly be secure? What do I need to know about copyright and fair use?

We will wrap up the institute with a demonstration of the newest edition of Blackboard Collaborate Ultra and an open lab to give you an opportunity to explore any of the instructional technologies highlighted during this event. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
