    Second Tuesday Cafes: Global Swarthmore: Research Across Borders

    All faculty and staff are invited to come together for a light lunch and some learning at the Second Tuesday Cafes. In this year’s series, “Global Swarthmore: Research Across Borders,” faculty will share how they: engage in collaborative research across the world, analyze global issues and processes, address global problems, and consider globalization’s impact in the arts. Convened by Ayse Kaya (Political Science) and Carina Yervasi (French & Francophone and Black Studies), the series will draw from diverse disciplines and approaches and showcase ways in which the “global” is reflected in Swarthmore faculty’s research. Talks are aimed at a general audience and include plenty of time for Q&A.

    This talk features Philip Jefferson (Economics).

    Café talks resume on February 12 with Eric Jensen (Physics).

    For more information, contact pshrops1@swarthmore.edu.

Classes will include core strengthening exercises and techniques to release tension in the body, especially focusing on the neck, shoulders, and hips, as well as how to improve everyday actions such as walking, sitting, standing, breathing. We will also work to improve balance, since this is a skill that can be learned at any stage in life.

    Title IX Forum (View)

    Where: Bond Memorial Hall Multi-Purpose Room

    Bond Memorial Hall, December 11, 3-4:30PM

    At Swarthmore, we care deeply about fostering a safe, positive environment that is free from harassment, discrimination, and intimidation of any kind. Our Title IX and student conduct policies reflect this and ensure smooth channels for receiving and responding to concerns.

    As you may know, newly proposed changes to federal Title IX regulations were introduced in mid-November by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and became open for public comment on November 29. The public comment period ends January 28, at which time the Department of Education will evaluate comments before issuing final regulations later in 2019.

    We are examining these proposed changes, which narrow the legal responsibilities of colleges and universities and may seriously impact reporting.

    Swarthmore will always ensure that our processes remain fair and consistent and include balanced protections for all of our students to the fullest extent allowed by law.

    As we determine the College’s institutional response during the public comment period, we are aware that national higher education associations and several colleges and universities are planning to submit comments to the Department of Education. Given where we are in the academic year, January 28 does not leave much time in which to effectively discuss these proposed changes within our community. But we are committed to hearing your voices before we decide on a response that affirms our support for regulations that maintain, not weaken, protections for students.

    On December 11 we will hold an open forum in which we can come together to discuss the proposed regulations and hear your thoughts and questions about this vitally important topic. This forum will take place Tuesday, December 11, from 3-4:30 p.m. in Bond Memorial Hall. In the meantime, you are able to submit your own public comments about the proposed regulations through the Federal eRulemaking Portal.
