Campus-Submitted Announcements

Events
1.) Reminder—Brown bag lunch for parents this Thursday
Noon July 11, HR Room 103
The Work-Life Balance committee for Great Places to Work is hosting a monthly brown bag lunch series to encourage parents to share their experiences and questions with colleagues who are dealing with the same issues. Each month, the group will discuss a different topic. The July 11 meeting will include an open discussion of how parents manage their time—all the things that have to get done between work, home and parenthood. Attendees should bring a few tips of what works for them.
Additional Information: RSVP here.

2.) ABI Housing Justice Reading Group offers free film screening: ‘Concrete Dust’
5 p.m. July 10 Room W104, Ekstrom Library

“Concrete Dust” is a documentary about the former Sheppard Square, its residents and demolition. The Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research will screen the film as this month’s reading/discussion topic in the ABI’s Housing Justice Reading Group (HJRG), but anyone can attend. HJRG is a gathering of social-justice-minded people from the university and surrounding community who care about fair housing.

6.) Protect yourself from bicycle thefts
The University Police Department has received reports of nine bicycle thefts on and around Belknap Campus since June 27. Thefts occurred at the Province apartments; near University Towers, Student Activities Center, Life Sciences, Houchens and Humanities buildings; and near Fourth Street and Cardinal Boulevard. All bikes stolen were either unlocked or secured with a cable-style lock. UPD says a “U”-shaped solid metal lock is the best protection for your property. Call 852-6111 if you have any information concerning the thefts.
