Erase Hate Exhibit - Call for submissions

Together with the FAU Center for IDEAs and in support of the FAU Libraries Erase Hate initiative, we want to give students the opportunity to express their feelings about the horrific death of George Floyd and others who lost their lives to racial injustice. This is a safe space where students can express actions they would like to take or feel others should take to erase the hate in order to start a conversation.

We invite FAU students to submit written (spoken word, poetry, essay, letters, etc..) or artistic (painting, sculpture, drawing, etc…) pieces answering the questions: How have you been impacted by racism you have experienced or have witnessed? What is your hope for the future? Your submission will be shared anonymously on the FAU Libraries website in an effort to create a space where we can listen and learn from each other and most importantly, promote a community of respect for all. Select pieces will also be part of an upcoming exhibition.

Support Nursing Home Residents by Volunteering From Home

The COVID19 pandemic has significantly impacted the seniors residing in assisted living facilities many of which have had to alter their visitation policies in order to protect residents. The goal of the project ,Connected Through Caring, is to promote cross-generational conversation and to strengthen community engagement with our most vulnerable members.

The project consists of three options for involvement including submitting a letter of encouragement/gratitude to nursing home residents/healthcare workers, a pen pal program where students will be matched with seniors in the community and a video chat initiative where students will have an opportunity to converse with seniors. This is the perfect opportunity to serve the community. If you are interested in learning more about the project or how to get involved, please visit our website and select the option that best interests you. Volunteers will be awarded community service hours!
