Jeans Day this Friday

Did you know that a donation to Jeans Day helps local charities in our area and aligns with UWL’s strategic plan priority of increasing community engagement? Donations are appreciated.

UWL is one of many local organizations that participates in the La Crosse Tribune's monthly ‘Jeans Day.’ In return for a suggested donation of $1, participants may wear jeans rather than usual business attire. Donations go to a designated local, non-profit charity or organization each month. This month’s charities are Independent Living Resources (ILR) and WAFER (food assistance programs). Last month we collected $73. Can we do even better?

On Friday, July 27, locate a building contact person to contribute, then collect a Jeans Day sticker. It is not necessary to wear jeans to participate. Remember, it’s not about the jeans, it’s about charities.

Christine Hippert, Archaeology/Anthropology, presented "The Social Construction of Race and Racism in Hispaniola: The Influence of the Past on the Present" at the Summer Teacher Institute at the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on July 11 in Milwaukee, WI. The Summer Teacher Institute is an annual continuing education experience for K-16 teachers and faculty. This year, faculty from not only the state, but also from throughout the US and the world were in attendance. This institute explores the racial and ethnic diversity of the region from colonial origins of racial and ethnic identities and categories to how practices evolved with the creation of new nation states and the abolition of African slavery in the late 19th century. The annual workshop is a collaboration between the Florida International University Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center (LACC), UW-Whitewater, UW-Madison Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies (LACIS) and the UW-Milwaukee Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS).
