Wesleyan Symposium on RISK

symposium is a day-long interdisciplinary critique, which:

Prompts the exchange of ideas and methods of inquiry between students and faculty across the curriculum,
Stimulates creativity and innovation,
Serves as a platform for juniors to develop senior research topics.

Why Risk?

Notions of vulnerability, security, and susceptibility are central to the ways we think and avenues of inquiry. “Risk” can apply to issues of statistical probability, genetic citizenship and responsibility, immigration and the precarity of citizenship, or climate change. We are eager to engage in an interdisciplinary conversation that honors these dimensions and complexities from many different vantage points and on a variety of scales.

Symposium will be held on Saturday, May 2. Lunch and dinner will be provided. The event is free, but registration is required. Email Gabriel Frankel (gfrankel@wesleyan.edu) to register.

“Protecting You, Securing Wesleyan” Campaign

Information Technology Services is pleased to launch our new cyber security awareness campaign: “Protecting You, Securing Wesleyan”, by providing all faculty, staff, and students with free access to a series of security awareness training videos. We ask that you please watch these videos at your earliest convenience, as they contain important information that will help you be safer online. There are 11 short videos totaling ~35 min. When you complete them all by December 15, we will automatically enter your name into a drawing for an iPad Air 2! There will be an iPad Air 2 given to one student from each of the class years!
