Free workshop on building an argument in room 1501 at 1 p.m. Learn an approach for coming up with ideas, relating them to the thesis, and organizing them logically. At the end of the process you’ll have a thorough outline that will make the actual writing much easier.
Thursday, May 8:
The R-word is the word ‘retard(ed)’. Why does it hurt? The R-word hurts because it is exclusive. It’s offensive. It’s derogatory. Our campaign asks people to pledge to stop saying the R-word as a starting point toward creating more accepting attitudes and communities for all people. Language affects attitudes and attitudes affect actions. Pledge today to use respectful, people-first language. More info in the PUB lobby.
