Auraria Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week!

Image

This week is very important to the Women’s Resource Center. A staggering amount of students on our campus are currently battling hunger and homelessness. Unfortunately, many students, staff, and faculty do not know as much as they should about this issue. We, as well as countless other offices on campus, have worked tirelessly to create the first ever Auraria Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. There will be a ton of important, informational, and fun events going on throughout the week.

Monday, Nov. 18

8:30-1:00pm Staff and Faculty Awareness Conference

This will be an opportunity for faculty and staff to learn about student food and housing insecurities on campus directly from students and alums who have experienced either or both in their time at Auraria. Please RSVP to WRC@ucdenver.edu if you are interested in attending.

We are so excited for this week of awareness and understanding of hunger and homelessness on our campus. We hope to see you there! Which events are you most excited for? Which ones will you be attending? Let us know in the comments below.
