Library Colloquia Series: "Small Strangers: Immigrant Children in America, 1880 -- 1925" Join us at the MSU Main Library this Thursday, April 26, for the free and public Library Colloquia Series event "Small Strangers: Immigrant Children in America, 1880 -- 1925". This colloquium will be presented by Melissa R. Klapper (Professor of History, Rowan University) in the MSU Main Library North Conference Room starting at 7:00 PM, and there will be a dessert reception preceding the lecture. Child immigrants and the American-born children of immigrants made up an important part of one of the most significant population movements in history: the arrival of nearly 25 million immigrants in the United States between 1880 and 1924. Their youthful encounters with ethnic heritage, American values, and mass culture contributed to the shape of the twentieth century in a United States still known symbolically around the world as a nation of immigrants. In conjunction with the MSU Main Library exhibit "Telling Family Stories: Jews, Genealogy and History". Exhibit produced in cooperation with Telling Family Stories: a yearlong initiative by the Jewish Studies Program at Michigan State University on Jews, Genealogy, and History. This program is made possible by the Legacy Heritage Jewish Studies Project, directed by the Association for Jewish Studies. Support for the Legacy Heritage Jewish Studies Project is generously provided by Legacy Heritage Fund Limited.

Richard Stockton College Brown Bag Advising Colloquia: Dr. Marc Lowenstein Why does Stockton choose to have most advising done by faculty? Why do we classify advising as teaching, rather than as service? How can a preceptor help a student get the most out of his or her learning opportunities, to build an education that is more than the sum of its parts? Dr. Marc Lowenstein, Associate Provost, answered these questions during his presentation, "Learning-Centered Advising," on February 28, 2012. The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey's Brown Bag Advising Colloquia is a series sponsored by the Center for Academic Advising and the Stockton Advising Council.

The Women's Colloquium in Liberia: Gender Equality in Africa In March 2009, women leaders from around the world met in Monrovia, Liberia for the International Colloquium for Women's Empowerment, Leadership Development, International Peace and Security. The conference had first been proposed at the inauguration of Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the only female head of state in Africa. Hundreds of women ultimately used the event as an opportunity to strategize on how to increase women's presence in government. It was a particularly powerful experience for women in Liberia. After a decade and a half of violent conflict, which deeply scarred the country's population and infrastructure, Liberian women are taking an active role in postwar reconstruction and insisting that they should have a say in shaping their country's future. This short film captures the energy of the event, where 800 female participants gathered to envision a new era of peace and gender equality in Africa and beyond.
