Three multi-use facilities now available for foot washing

Thursday, April 5, 2018

The University is committed to ensuring that the campus is welcoming, respectful, and accessible to all. Three years ago a planning group came together to discuss how to address the lack of facilities for the many University students and employees who are Muslim and need to have the ability to wash their feet several times in the course of the day. Lacking proper facilities, some people have resorted to using conventional restroom sinks, which is difficult to do and presents safety issues for all users.

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Program Scholars, College of Liberal Arts:

Sorrow and celebration walk hand-in-hand today.  On April 4, 1968, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on what was once just another balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. While Dr. King’s human life came to an end 50 years ago today, we continue to celebrate his legacy, and use this day to renew our steadfast commitment to equity and social justice.
