Dear Students,

SLIS faculty and staff are committed to social justice, diversity, and equality among our staff, students, and services.   We want everyone to feel welcome and involved at SLIS.

SLIS is currently in the process of scheduling workshops for students about how to be advocates for communities under stress.  We will advertise the date and time of these events when they are known.

If you’re feeling stressed, feeling unsafe, or feeling alone, there are resources on campus that can help.
