The strong low pressure that brought the heavy rain last night clears the area. Residual shower activity in the morning gives way to cloudy conditions. Winds will remain stiff. High temperature near 44.


University of Pittsburgh Diversity Forum

Many faculty and staff enjoyed the PASSHE Diversity Summit virtually this past November. If you would like to check out another DEI virtual training opportunity, I encourage you to register for the University of Pittsburgh Diversity Forum 2024. I attended several of the sessions last year and found them educational, intellectually stimulating and helpful to my work as an educator. It is free and you can attend sessions that fit your schedule or interests. The "University of Pittsburgh Diversity Forum 2024: Amplifying Our Voices Through Active Listening and Constructive Dialogue" will be held Jan. 23-24. Please click here to register. Don't forget to save the date for the following conferences coming up on the KU campus: KU UJIMA Conference Feb. 20-22; Annual Commission on Human Diversity Conference Friday, March 1.
