A free, campus “Scholars Speak UP” featuring a Bucknell faculty/staff panel and a self-care activity will take place on Thursday, Nov. 14 from 7 to 9 p.m. in Larison Dining Hall. The event will address many cultural myths and misconceptions surrounding social and cultural issues of today.
Nina Banks, economics professor; Erica Delsandro, women’s & gender studies professor; Kelsey Hicks, director of the Women’s Resource Center; Nikki Young, interim associate provost for diversity, equity and inclusion; and a representative from Transitions — a local crisis center that provides advocacy, empowerment and education to victims, survivors, families and communities to end patterns of violence and abuse — will participate in the panel discussion from 7 to 8 p.m.
Following the panel, there will be a “Self Care Rocks” debrief where participants can make their own kindness rocks to spread joy and encouragement around campus.
The event is sponsored by Speak UP Bucknell, the Women’s Resource Center, IFC, Black Student Union, BSG Diversity Committee, Gender Sexuality, Ethiopian and Eritrean Students Association, South Asian Students Association, and the Korean Cultural Association.
