CALL FOR PROPOSALS: WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH: Please consider proposing an event for Women's History Month in March 2013. The theme for 2013 Women's History Month at EMU is "Breaking Boundaries: Women at the Forefront of Change." Female activists have been fighting for equality in the workplace, at home, and in every other aspect of their lives for decades. Unfortunately, they are often forgotten in terms of passing on their remarkable history. Women have been the founders of groundbreaking organizations, the heart behind grassroots movements, and the intelligence behind profound discoveries. These women will have the opportunity to tell their stories. All event proposals must be submitted by November 16 through the online Event Proposal Form. If you have questions about this form or the month's events, please contact Suzanne Gray sgray17@emich.edu.


2013 MARTIN LUTHUR KING DAY CELEBRATION - CALL FOR PROPOSALS: The EMU Martin Luther King Day Celebration Planning Committee invites proposals for academic sessions to be offered as part of the MLK Day 2013 celebration. The theme for 2013 is "Igniting a Generation of Dreamers." The committee seeks academic sessions that explore, analyze, or inform our understanding of Dr. King's legacy, and especially how individuals or groups have interpreted and responded to Dr. King's mission to inspire others to dream and work diligently toward making dreams a reality.  Session content may explore the past, present, or future and address various issues, challenges and successes related to the theme and Dr. King's life, work, and legacy. 

Each academic session will run 50 minutes and will take place on January 21, 2013.  Participants can choose the 2:00-2:50pm time slot, the 3:00-3:50pm slot, or both. Proposals are due no later than midnight on Wednesday, November 21, in electronic format. Please find the application and directions for submission by clicking on MLK Program Proposal 2013 Form. If you have questions, please feel free to contact the academic programs sub-committee chairperson, Dawn Pearcy at email dpearcy@emich.edu.
