Shannen Dee Williams of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville will present a free lecture, “The Real Sister Act: Black Catholic Nuns and the Long Struggle to Desegregate U.S. Religious Life,” on Thursday, November 16, at 7:15 p.m., in Franz Hall room 120. The event is hosted by the Garaventa Center and is free and open to all. In her talk, Williams will chart the fiercely contested entries of U.S. born black women and girls into historically white Catholic sisterhoods from the nineteenth century to the present day. Williams is an assistant professor of U.S. and African-American history, and is currently working on her first book: Subversive Habits: The Untold Story of Black Catholic Nuns in the United States.

Are you contacted by employers who want to post internship and job opportunities? The Career Center launched Handshake as the centralized internship and job posting system for University of Portland students and alumni, which democratizes access and provides students and alumni with an opportunity to connect with over 200,000 employers locally and nationally.
The Career Center has become aware that organizations (i.e. Frog Tutoring, Environment America, Teach for America, etc.) are directly contacting faculty and staff and requesting that they forward opportunities via email to students. Please direct ALL internship and job opportunities to the Career Center rather than forwarding to students. Unfortunately there are many employment scams targeted at college students. The Career Center can screen these requests and then follow up with employers to get them posted. All requests should be emailed to the Career Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. All students can access Handshake through single sign-on. Questions? Contact Amy Cavanaugh, Career Center, at email@example.com.
