ANNOUNCEMENTS

KU PHILOSOPHY CLUB MEETING
Oct. 1
The KU Philosophy Club will meet 11 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 1, via Zoom. There will be a discussion of “V-Ego-ism.” It's a fusion between veganism and egoism. The idea is that the meat industry creates 18% of greenhouse gasses produced by humans. So it's in one's self interest to avoid consuming meat to improve the quality of other aspects of life. https://kutztown.zoom.us/j/98035016433?pwd=QjdSMDcyQk5Rd1VlMzFLeHdiVnVtQT09

STRONGER TOGETHER FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN
The Golden B.E.A.R. (Belonging, Empathy, Advocacy, Respect) Rule is about treating others as they want to be treated; building a culture of respect each day on our campus. In light of recent times, the Golden B.E.A.R. community has sought to listen and impart lasting change that supports our students with a focus on equity, diversity and inclusion.
