"Multiversity" TV Series
CU faculty, researchers and administrators who work on issues of race, ethnicity and class were given a new voice February 27 as the School of Journalism and Mass Communication launched its new "Multiversity" television series. The purpose of the series is to showcase contributions in race and ethnicity research in order to help the community and students know about local resources. The series airs nightly at 9:30 p.m. except on Saturdays on Boulder cable Channel 63 and CU-Boulder campus channel 22. For more information, visit the School of Journalism and Mass Communication Web site.
RecycleMania is a friendly, 10-week competition among top national recycling programs that continues through April 8. In week four, CU jumped to 11th place in the Grand Champion Diversion Rate Competition with a recycling rate of 30.57 percent. The goal is for 10 percent of the campus community – about 3,000 people - to participate. So far more than 120 people have signed up. You can pledge your commitment to reducing, reusing and recycling online at CU Recycling: RecycleMania 2006!
The "Year of Study Abroad"
In December the U.S. Senate proclaimed through a unanimous vote that 2006 should be the "Year of Study Abroad." The Office of International Education is hosting a number of events this year tied to this designation. In February OIE hosted a speaker from one of our Australian partner institutions, Macquarie University, that was well received. Visit the Study Abroad Web site.
