Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.

Announcing the Department of Social Work's 4th Annual DIVERSITY DAY!
Hosted by the Department of Social Work featuring keynote speaker: Tchicaya Missamou
Born into the Congolese wilderness, Tchicaya Missamou became a child solder at age 11. As a horrific civil war loomed across his country, Missamou began using his militia connections to ferry jewels, cash, computers, and white diplomats out of the country. By 17, he was rich. By 18, he was a hunted man, his house destroyed, his family brutalized in front of him by his own militia. By 19, he'd left behind everything he'd ever known, escaping to Europe and, eventually to America. Incredibly, that was only the start of his journey.
Social Work's Fourth Annual Diversity Day will focus on the resilience of trauma survivors and provide education on evidence based trauma-informed interventions and assessment utilizing intersectionality and strengh-based perspectives.
