Collaboration & Change for a Common Good
A Reflection on Collaboration in Campus Life
India Pierce and Sean Novak

 

One way that we can work effectively to create change for a common good is to work collaboratively across communities. With this in mind, India Pierce from the Center for Sexual & Gender Diversity (CSGD) came together with Sean Novak from the Center for Multicultural Affairs (CMA) to create a program that explored the intersections of race and sexual orientation. As part of the CMA’s En/Countering Racism series (E/C), they created a program for students to gather and explore intersectionality. This was done in order to deepen participants’ understanding of themselves and others as a means to building stronger coalitions for social justice.

Many folks around the nation have embraced the “Eat Local” movement, in regard to meat, produce and dairy, but not much attention has been paid to fish. EAT LOCAL FISH DAY on Tuesday, 9/25 will introduce you to sustainable seafood.

Please join Duke Dining and Bon Appetit Management Company at the Marketplace on East Campus on Tuesday, 9/25 at lunchtime, for the Eat Local Fish Challenge. Helpful apps, recipes and extensive research will be available to all and sustainable fish populations will be highlighted.

Please join Duke Dining as we celebrate the Grand Opening of Au Bon Pain, located in the Bryan Center, on Wednesday, September 12, 2012.

The day will be filled with raffles, samplings and give-a-ways with the ribbon cutting ceremony at 2:45. Enter the raffle by 2:15 to have a chance at winning an Au Bon Pain gift basket. Gift baskets will be raffled at 2:30 and 3:00.

Au Bon Pain officially opened on Friday, August 17, 2012 and has been very well received by the university community. Offering made-to-order salads, wraps and sandwiches and fresh baked artisan breads it’s been tough to find even standing room at Duke Dining’s newest addition.
