Impact: Past, Present, Future (Episode I)

Inspired by Syracuse University’s 150th anniversary, the Department of Drama in the College of Visual and Performing Arts will virtually present the first episode of “Impact: Past, Present, Future,” a new theatrical piece that will be performed live in a series of four staged readings. Subsequent episodes will be held on Feb. 22, March 8 and March 22. Directed by Ricky Pak, assistant professor of acting, “Impact: Past, Present, Future” is an exploration of the history of Syracuse University and an examination of our values as an institution with a focus on diversity and inclusion. Each episode spans 40 years of University history: 1870-1910, 1911-1950, 1951-1990 and 1991-2020 plus 10. The creative team, which includes drama students and alumni, spent the past year exploring archival documents to uncover a rich history filled with high points and low points, triumph and tragedy, humor and pathos. The result is a work that both celebrates the University and compels us to do better. The series will be presented on Zoom; registration is required. Participants will have an opportunity to take part in a dialogue with the artists. Participants are also invited to consider a donation to the Felix E. Cochren, Jr. Memorial Scholarship fund, which intends to promote a more diverse student body in the drama department by providing scholarship and financial assistance to current students who are underrepresented in the program.

Rethinking the Disability Paradigm: The University Community Working Together

What do you need to know about disabled students and co-workers? This workshop will answer this question and many more that you didn’t know to ask! What does able-bodied privilege mean? How does it manifest in the workplace? Our socially mediated and culturally affirmed beliefs influence how we think and engage with each other. These largely unconscious beliefs can lead to biases and micro-aggressions that impact others in ways that we may not be aware of or intend. We want you to gain an awareness of your own beliefs and how they influence your actions and the language you use. This is a collective responsibility we all share.
