Building Blocks of Equity Seminar Series

How do academics – at all stages of their careers – form effective partnerships? How can students and early career faculty engage in research in Global South communities? How can students contribute to building equity? Teams of mentors and mentees will reflect on these questions alongside their community partners.

Documenting the UB Community Experience during COVID-19 Pandemic

Date & Time: Submit anytime

Intended Audience: UB Students, Faculty and Staff

The University Archives is launching a project to encourage students, faculty and staff to document their personal experiences during the COVID-19 outbreak and contribute them to the University Archives. Students have been impacted by great change to their learning environments, living situations, employment, and social connections. Faculty have adapted the ways in which they deliver course materials and interact with students. Staff have adjusted to changes in their work environments, both at home and on campus, all while coping with momentous change in daily routines, family life, and personal health and safety. By collecting and preserving these perspectives the University Archives supports the research mission of the university, allowing future students, researchers, and scholars to study the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, an undoubtedly transformative event in the history of student life and the academic experience at UB. Visit University Archives webpage for more information.
