VU Today Jan. 9
Tuesday, Jan. 9
Employees are invited to attend a university forum from 8:30–10 a.m. (note new time) Thursday, Jan. 11 in the Fine Arts Center Nola Starling Recital Hall. President Glena Temple will provide a university update and will introduce new employees.
The Viterbo community is invited to attend the annual La Crosse Community Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 15 in the Viterbo Fine Arts Center Main Theatre. It will feature the presentation of the MLK Leadership Award, a keynote address by Duchess Harris, professor and chair of the American Studies department at Macalester College in St. Paul, and music by the Viterbo Concert Choir and the Coulee Region Gospel Choir. The event is free. Donations of nonperishable food items for the Hunger Task Force are encouraged.
The Academic Resource Center is continuing to collect the stories of employees who were first-generation college students to encourage and inspire Viterbo’s first-generation students. If you completed a bachelor’s degree or higher as a first-generation student (neither of your parents completed bachelor’s degrees), take a moment to share your story in a short survey at http://viterbo.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_etlzura05bGa5yl. If you already completed the survey this past summer, you do not need to complete it again.
