MBK Symposium scheduled

Dr. Laura Rendón, professor emerita at the University of Texas-San Antonio, will be the featured speaker April 5 at the annual Michaelson, Briner & Kildahl Literary Symposium.


Rendón’s virtual presentation, “Allegory of an Academic Immigrant: Crossing Borders to Find Authentic Presence in Higher Education,” will begin at 11:30 a.m.


Using art and poetry, Rendón will chart her personal and academic development navigating geographical, social, cultural, and academic borders. She also will review what she perceives to be newly emerging challenges as higher education and our society grapple with individual and collective trauma and the need for a justice- and equity-based vision of education.

Resources available from development session

Thank you to everyone who attended "Fostering Student Success: Working With Validation, Student Assets & Sentipensante Pedagogy," the professional development workshop recently facilitated by Dr. Laura Rendón. A recording of the session (passcode: Qr*m8&7c) is now available for reference and for those who were unable to attend. The Okanagan Charter discussed by Rendón is also available for reference.

Ramadan begins April 2

The holy month of Ramadan begins Saturday, April 2, in the Muslim faith. Practicing Muslims will fast from dawn to dusk, or approximately 6 a.m to 8 p.m. each day. Many will also run on little sleep, with daily prayers lasting well into the night and early rising to eat before the sun appears.


Because of this, Muslim students may be tired, hungry and dehydrated in your classes or at work studies, especially in the late afternoon.


Ramadan continues through May 2, with Eid al-Fitr, the festival of breaking the fast, held May 3.

Mileage reimbursement increased

The mileage reimbursement rate is increasing from $0.41 to $0.44 per mile driven for business purposes in a personal vehicle. This change will be effective April 1, 2022, for miles driven beginning on that date. This change reflects the increased cost of driving at the current moment and is subject to change in the future.
