Diversity Colloquium: "The Relevance of Disability Studies in Education: A Framework for Change"

Monday, February 19, 2018 - 7:00 pm

Disability Studies in Education (DSE) promotes the understanding of disability from a social model perspective drawing on the social, cultural, historical, philosophical and literary to challenge medical, scientific and pscyhological models of disability as they relate to education. With an interest in promoting social justice and equitable and inclusive opportunities for all, a DSE framework rejects traditional interpretations of disability and acknowledges disability as socially constructed, complex and intersectional.

This panel presentation will share how a DSE framework within K-12 and higher education settings creates spaces for change and transformation.

TheatreUNI: Hair

TheatreUNI: Hair

Thursday, February 22, 2018 - 7:30 pm

Book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot.

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary!

Sex. Drugs. Love. War.

It’s the 1960s. It’s an era of rock n’ roll, social movements, civil rights activism, and the attempt to let “peace guide the planets, and love steer the stars.” In a time of opposing views, in a country divided, a group of friends works to find love, fight for their beliefs, and “believe that now is the time for all good men to believe in love.”

Hair: a story of people who -- facing a world of hardships -- fight for social justice, and against the draft. In order to maintain their beliefs and change the world, they must work together to promote safety, change, equality, and to “let the Sunshine in.”
