  • Update on External Review March 10–12: An external committee will review the university’s support, prevention, response and investigation of sexual harassment and sexual violence services. The reviewers have been asked to provide recommendations for improving the experiences of community members who have experienced or been accused of sexual violence or harassment. Given concerns about domestic travel due to COVID-19, the external reviewers will be staying on their own campuses and will participate remotely by Zoom. While this format is not ideal, it’s important that the review is conducted and completed as soon as possible. Details on how to access the Zoom meetings for the Student Forum on March 10 and the Faculty/Staff Forum on March 11 can be found here. In addition, there is a community feedback form.
  • Taylor memorial: The Philosophy Department will be rescheduling a memorial event for the late Ken Taylor, the Henry Waldgrave Stuart Professor of Philosophy. The event was originally scheduled for April 7.
