Focus the Nation Events!

Thank you for your patience during the January lull.  Now that the semester is in full gear, I will be posting more frequently.  Look for updates on new books in the library, and upcoming events on campus dealing with human rights themes!

During the last week of January 2008, the University of Connecticut will join more than 1,450 colleges, universities, and K-12 schools as participants in Focus The Nation, a national climate change awareness and education event.

Events will be held at all of the UConn campuses, including the law school and health center, and will include a free showing of the new environmental documentary “The 11th Hour,” a free showing of “The 2% Solution,” and a faculty panel discussion on UConn’s role in addressing climate change.  

There will also be a teach-in taking place throughout the day on January 30th and 31st in which professors from over 20 different departments will facilitate discussions about climate change within the context of their respective disciplines.
