Honors Senior Thesis Info Session

Monday, April 12th | 4:00-5:00 pm | via Zoom
Presented by: Heather Fielding, Honors Director

Are you interested in pursuing a sustained, independent, flexible senior project? Do you have an idea, within or beyond your disciplines, that you want to explore deeply before you graduate? Do you want more experience with academic writing? Are you ready to take the lead on your own research project? If you said yes to any of these questions, then a senior honors thesis might be for you. Join the Honors Director, Heather Fielding, and two current thesis writers, Trevor Nelson and Tyler Gonzales, to learn more about what a thesis is, why you might want to write one, and what the process looks like.

Responding to Microaggressions

Friday, April 30th | 4:00-5:00 pm | via Zoom
Presented by: Jodi Thesing-Ritter
Responding to Microaggressions Poster

Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership. Workshop participants will learn to recognize microaggressions, reduce them in their daily lives and support students who experience them daily. This program will be hosted through Zoom by Jodi Thesing-Ritter, honors instructor and Executive Director for Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. This event will be hosted in collaboration with the Upper Midwest Honors Council and will count for a tier 2 EDI requirement.
