When: March 29, 2023 2:00 to 3:30pm
Where: Campus Center, Room 174-76
The Supreme Court is revisiting race-based admissions, which could impact admissions policies designed to diversify colleges and universities. Join James Roche, Vice Provost for Enrollment Management; Mike Drish, Director of First-Year Admissions; and David Cort, Associate Professor of Sociology in a panel discussion on how this ruling could affect admissions practices for UMass Amherst in the future.
Event is co-sponsored by SBS RISE and CJLS.
When: April 10, 2023 1-2pm
Where: Campus Center
The Chancellor will rededicate the Campus Center mural “Justice, Diversity, and Opportunity” commissioned in 2010 by UMass as part of peacebuilding efforts to highlight the power of art in conflict transformation. UMass students played a leading role in the designs and painting, collaborating with two of the artists who painted political murals during the North/Northern Ireland conflict and the transition to peace: Danny Devenny, an ex-Irish Republican Army political prisoner and Mark Ervine, British loyalist, whose father served in the paramilitary Ulster Volunteer Force and was a negotiator on their behalf for the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement.
