EXAMINING THE URBAN-RURAL DIVIDE
Honors students at the University of Utah will co-host a forum
with Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox at the Hinckley Institute (Building 73, room 110) to address the difficulties of the urban-rural divide on Monday, April 2 at 5 p.m.
As part of a Praxis Lab, students are addressing issues related to access to education beyond high school in rural and urban areas of Utah. Overall, the students are interested in helping to expand educational opportunities for kids across the state. This decision was motivated by their interest to address some of the complex differences between rural and urban areas related to economic opportunities, community sustainability and social problems.
U HONORS NOVELIST AMITAV GHOSH
The University of Utah’s Environmental Humanities graduate program will award Indian novelist Amitav Ghosh
with the inaugural Utah Award in the Environmental Humanities on March 26 at 7 p.m. at the Salt Lake City Main Library.
Ghosh has written 10 novels and several books of non-fiction including 2016’s “The Great Derangement: Climate Change and the Unthinkable.” Ghosh’s work has been translated into 20 languages and published in myriad outlets including The New Yorker, The New Republic and The New York Times. His writing focuses on environmental consciousness in the most difficult circumstances of a multicultural, globalized and interdependent world.
The $10,000 award will become an annual celebration of environmental leadership and expression and honor those who solve the planet’s environmental problems using the tools of the humanities such as creative expression, scholarly research, popular art forms and advocacy.
THE GREAT SHAKEOUT DRILL
The Great Utah ShakeOut is an opportunity for our University campus to learn about overall preparedness plans, what to do during earthquakes, and then practice those skills. Watch for a campus alert on April 19, 2018, at 10:15 a.m., encouraging everyone to practice drop, cover and hold on. Practice and reinforcement of these protective actions can help prevent injury when the earth starts to shake. Remember, it is not the shaking of the ground that causes death or injury, it is the objects that are falling that will be most dangerous.
If you haven’t signed up to receive emergency messages from the University, please update your profile in CIS today. Help us keep our students and campus community prepared and safe by encouraging participation in the Great Utah ShakeOut earthquake drill.
