News and Perspectives
Over plates stacked with warm waffles, a panel of University of Minnesota faculty and staff members recalled their experiences as first-generation college students Tuesday evening.
A group of around 20 students attended the First-Generation Panel and Waffle Bar in Bruininks Hall, an event encouraging discussion and advice-sharing between faculty, staff and students with similar backgrounds.
The event, organized by Multicultural and First Generation College Students, a program within the College of Liberal Arts, featured four panelists.
On Monday, April 30, The Aurora Center is collaborating with Terra Firma to offer trauma-informed movement exercises in this self-care and healing workshop.
These events close out Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) to allow a safe and healing space for sexual violence survivors and allies to take care of themselves during April, which can be a very triggering month.
