Upcoming Events

* RE-Thinking Diversity Summer Series: Dialogue on Race Offers First Session June 6

This summer the Office of Diversity Initiatives will offer one-hour session that will provide interactive dialogue to allow
campus participants to think and discuss about how to re-think everything you ever knew about race. The sessions will provide solution-oriented steps and strategies as well as resources for participants.

The first session will be offered on Wednesday, June 6, entitled, "Past to the Present," and participants must RSVP by Monday, June 4. The discussion will center around racism in the United States, its long and appalling past and presented by Rob Shelby, PhD, assistant professor/sociology.

The session will begin at noon at the Diversity Resource Center, 436 Weinbach Avenue (The House with the Purple Door.) Participants are encouraged to bring their lunch but drinks and snacks will also be offered.

Sessions are intended for any campus members and friends (i.e., faculty, staff, students, alumni or administrators). Anyone attending all of the sessions will be given a certificate of completion of Diversity and Inclusion at UE at the end of the summer sessions.

Info You Should Know

* Payroll Deduction Information

Many of our employees make gifts to UE year after year using payroll deduction. Maybe you didn’t know about payroll deduction or how to initiate the process. It is very simple – complete the Campus Campaign Pledge Form found on AceLink located in the Development and Alumni Relations area. Easy as that! There are two options. One is a yearly payroll deduction where it ends on May 31, 2019 and the other is a recurring payroll deduction that continues until you tell us otherwise. You can designate your gift to any area(s) on campus.

This is just one option for giving. Whether you decide to make a payroll deduction gift, purchase a UE license plate, give at a certain time of the year, or wait until Pep and Vim (April 12, 2019), all gifts are important and have immediate impacts on our campus and our students. Thank you for your True and Loyal support!!

If you would like more information on the payroll deduction process or giving in general, please contact Jennifer Calderone at or ext. 2021.
