HON 251 Dialogue - Sexual Harassment and Rape Culture

  • Time: 12:00pm

Select students from the Spring 2020 HON 251 courses invite you to participate in a Deliberative Dialogue, a guided discussion on pressing social issues impacting our communities.

Unlike debate, or lecture, or an airing of grievances, deliberation asks us to begin with what we hold most dear and share our personal experiences with a given issue. It’s not about reaching agreement or seeing eye-to-eye. It’s about looking at the costs and consequences of possible solutions to daunting problems, and finding out what we, as a people, will or will not accept as a solution. We must listen to one another, explore the unbiased facts, test ideas, weigh options and balance tradeoffs to find where our various interests overlap—where purposes can be joined towards a shared future.

Counseling Center: LGBTQIA+ Support Group

  • Location: Potter Hall Conference Room, 408
  • Time: 4:00pm - 5:00pm

This group is a supportive environment for members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, and asexual or allied) community to develop deeper self-awareness, explore ways to maximize their WKU experience. This group discussion may include topics such as: coming out, family, relationships, wellness, etc.  

The group meets weekly to socialize, to celebrate identities, and to provide feedback and support to those who may be struggling with hardships unique to being LGBTQ.  Group lasts about 1 hour.

Typically, it is facilitated by a WKU CC Staff, although for Spring 2020 semester may be peer led at times. This is not a therapy or counseling group. Hard topics may be discussed and advice requested; however, the leader reserves the right to suggest members attend individual counseling (if it’s clear further processing and individual attention is needed).

HON 251 Dialogue - Big Tech and Data Rights

  • Time: 12:30pm

Select students from the Spring 2020 HON 251 courses invite you to participate in a Deliberative Dialogue, a guided discussion on pressing social issues impacting our communities.

Unlike debate, or lecture, or an airing of grievances, deliberation asks us to begin with what we hold most dear and share our personal experiences with a given issue. It’s not about reaching agreement or seeing eye-to-eye. It’s about looking at the costs and consequences of possible solutions to daunting problems, and finding out what we, as a people, will or will not accept as a solution. We must listen to one another, explore the unbiased facts, test ideas, weigh options and balance tradeoffs to find where our various interests overlap—where purposes can be joined towards a shared future.

The Department of Geography and Geology and the Applied Research and Technology Program (ARTP) are happy to announce an upcoming international conference that will be held at WKU in May 2020, with the support of the WKU Office of Research, the Ogden College of Science and Engineering, and ARTP.  Please find detailed information and links to the meeting website below.  Registration fees can be waived for WKU faculty, staff, or students who are interested in participating through presentation, workshop facilitation, and/or volunteering in some capacity.  Please contact Lee Anne Bledsoe, lee.bledsoe@wku.edu, for more details.  

  

UNESCO Karst 2020, Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: 

Abstract Submission Deadline, November 30, 2019

 

PROMOTING SUSTAINABILITY AND COMMUNITY

WHILE PROTECTING FRAGILE KARST ECOSYSTEMS.

 

The Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: A Workshop on Sustainability and Community, informally called UNESCO Karst 2020, aims to enhance communication and the sharing of ideas and resources between major international conservation and science programs that protect, study, or manage cave and karst resources. The meeting will bring together a diverse group of managers, scientists, educators, and community partners to share successes and challenges in promoting sustainability and community involvement while protecting fragile karst ecosystems.

 

The call for abstracts is open! Abstracts may be submitted until November 30, 2019 and authors will be notified of acceptance by January 1. In addition to traditional scientific presentations, we encourage participants to propose workshop sessions. Workshops are 1.5-hour blocks of time that you organize in order to achieve a specific outcome. These may include a panel discussion, collaborating on a strategic plan or research project, a business meeting, or simply a space to share ideas about a common challenge.  Find more information about organizing your workshop here.  The planning committee looks forward to your proposals!

 

UNESCO Karst 2020 will occur on 18-22 May 2020 in the world-class karst area of south-central Kentucky! The meeting will take place in the newly remodeled Downing Student Union on the campus of Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky, with mid-week field excursions to nearby Mammoth Cave National Park and Biosphere Reserve. A pre-meeting field excursion at Mammoth Cave National Park is also planned for 15-17 May, 2020, in cooperation with the USGS Karst Interest Group.

 

For all of the details on the meeting, including information on how to prepare and submit your abstracts, visit http://www.unescokarst2020.com/. .

 

UNESCO Karst 2020 is managed by the Crawford Hydrology Laboratory at Western Kentucky University, the George Wright Society, and the Mammoth Cave Area Biosphere Reserve as well as an outstanding team of karst experts from around the world who join us to form the Advisory Committee. On behalf of the UNESCO Karst 2020 team, we look forward to receiving your abstracts and seeing you in Kentucky next year!

Event Changes Due To COVID-19

  • Time: All Day

All in-person events for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester must be postponed, cancelled, or virtualized. Degrees will still be conferred to students who complete all the required coursework this semester; however, in-person WKU commencement celebrations will take place at a later date.

It is important for all students to practice social distancing and implement the practice into all activities.

Although this may cause inconveniences and disappointment among event participants, we believe it is in the best interest of our campus communities.

For questions about specific events, please contact the event’s organizer or the WKU Office of Campus and Community Events at 270-745-2497 or via email at special.events@wku.edu.

UNESCO Karst 2020, Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: 

Abstract Submission Deadline, November 30, 2019

 

PROMOTING SUSTAINABILITY AND COMMUNITY

WHILE PROTECTING FRAGILE KARST ECOSYSTEMS.

 

The Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: A Workshop on Sustainability and Community, informally called UNESCO Karst 2020, aims to enhance communication and the sharing of ideas and resources between major international conservation and science programs that protect, study, or manage cave and karst resources. The meeting will bring together a diverse group of managers, scientists, educators, and community partners to share successes and challenges in promoting sustainability and community involvement while protecting fragile karst ecosystems.

 

The call for abstracts is open! Abstracts may be submitted until November 30, 2019 and authors will be notified of acceptance by January 1. In addition to traditional scientific presentations, we encourage participants to propose workshop sessions. Workshops are 1.5-hour blocks of time that you organize in order to achieve a specific outcome. These may include a panel discussion, collaborating on a strategic plan or research project, a business meeting, or simply a space to share ideas about a common challenge.  Find more information about organizing your workshop here.  The planning committee looks forward to your proposals!

 

UNESCO Karst 2020 will occur on 18-22 May 2020 in the world-class karst area of south-central Kentucky! The meeting will take place in the newly remodeled Downing Student Union on the campus of Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky, with mid-week field excursions to nearby Mammoth Cave National Park and Biosphere Reserve. A pre-meeting field excursion at Mammoth Cave National Park is also planned for 15-17 May, 2020, in cooperation with the USGS Karst Interest Group.
