HERE For You
If you are a student and have received your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination at an off-campus location, please upload a picture of your vaccine card to your UHS Patient Portal. This will be used to help the University identify if we have reached the 90% first dose threshold to phase in some easing of our COVID-19 protocols in the coming weeks. Once you have received your second dose, you will be asked to re-upload to your UHS Patient Portal to show you have been fully vaccinated.

Multicultural Student Programs and Services (MSPS)
A CONVERSATION WITH DR. LUKE WOOD
Friday, April 9, 10 a.m., Virtual
Racial microaggressions are commonly understood as racially insensitive snubs, slights, insults, and putdowns that invalidate the experiences and intellectual capabilities of people of color. While some may assume racial microaggressions are harmless, published research on student success confirms the cumulative effect of these behaviors have a deleterious influence on people of color’s sense of belonging, welcomeness to engage, self-efficacy, and success in postsecondary education. Thus, the purpose of this workshop is to introduce participants to the concept of microaggressions, discuss how microaggressions manifest in academic contexts, highlight the most common microaggressions experienced by students of color in education, and highlight strategies that have been proven effective in challenging racial microaggressions in education. Register here.
