Imagine a place dedicated to inspirational learning, to community, to sharing our diverse worldviews and our unique perspectives.

Imagine a welcoming space to come together and or ourselves, our campus, our world.

In this place, we learn how to prepare ourselves to be leaders and agents of positive change in our ever-evolving, multicultural world - where we can develop into truly global citizens, who care deeply about social change, sustainable, vital living, creativity, and collaboration.

In this place, we learn how to become the innovative people we need to be, and how to work together to create the kind of world we want to live in, a world for generations to come. We are building this place together - The HUB - where everyone is welcomed, included and respected. Where we learn to develop and align our diverse cultures, capacities and talents to enrich our campus community and the world beyond. Where we learn as individuals and as a community to embody the human spirit.

Drop into The HUB - come visit us in our office on the 2nd floor of the Student Center!

Social Justice Film Series Presents: Lion

In 1986, Saroo was a five-year-old child in India of a poor but happy rural family. On a trip with his brother, Saroo soon finds himself alone and trapped in a moving decommissioned passenger train that takes him to Calcutta, 1500 miles away from home. Now totally lost in an alien urban environment and too young to identify either himself or his home to the authorities, Saroo struggles to survive as a street child until he is sent to an orphanage. Soon, Saroo is selected to be adopted by the Brierley family in Tasmania, where he grows up in a loving, prosperous home. However, for all his material good fortune, Saroo finds himself plagued by his memories of his lost family in his adulthood and tries to search for them even as his guilt drives him to hide this quest from his adoptive parents and his girlfriend. Only when he has an epiphany does he realize not only the answers he needs, but also the steadfast love that he has always had with all his loved ones in both worlds.

Join us as we watch, enjoy FREE Pizza, and discuss the film afterwards with Dr Don Romesburg, Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies.

Social Justice Film Series Presents: Hidden Figures

As America stood on the brink of a Second World War, the push for aeronautical advancement grew ever greater, spurring an insatiable demand for mathematicians. Women were the solution. Ushered into the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory in 1935 to shoulder the burden of number crunching, they acted as human computers, freeing the engineers of hand calculations in the decades before the digital age. Sharp and successful, the female population at Langley skyrocketed.

Many of these “computers” are finally getting their due, but conspicuously missing from this story of female achievement are the efforts contributed by courageous, African-American women. Called the West Computers, after the area to which they were relegated, they helped blaze a trail for mathematicians and engineers of all races and genders to follow. Join us as we watch, enjoy FREE Pizza, and discuss the film afterwards with Dr Sara Kassis, Adjunct Professor of Engineering

Science and the Director for Women In Tech.
