On Tuesday Nov.3rd at 6:30pm in Albright Auditorium, a forum will be held for the Hobart & William Smith community about race relations, in light of the recent incidents involving members of the HWS community.
How can we as a community be educated and move forward to promote a healthier, safer and more inclusive environment? If you are a HWS student, faculty member or staff member, let your voice be heard. Come and contribute to the dialogue.
Please note, this is a closed forum in that it is only open to members of the HWS community.
Don’t forget to turn your clocks BACK one hour when you go to bed on Saturday night, 10/31/09!

On Tuesday Nov.4th, join 105.7FM for Live Election Coverage courtesy of Radio Bilingue.
Radio Bilingüe’s Línea Abierta goes on the road again to bring the developments of the Democratic and Republican Conventions to Spanish-speaking audiences. Opinion polls show Latino voters are highly concerned about the failing economy, the war in Iraq, health care access, education and immigration reform. Radio Bilingüe will bring those issues to the forefront of our special election coverage when a team of producers and reporters travel to Denver, CO (DNC Aug.24-27) and St. Paul, MN (RNC Sept.1-4) to air more than ten hours of direct news coverage, including conversations with delegates, party officials, seasoned journalists, political experts, and community advocates.
These special programs will include news stories on developments in the convention floor, rallies outside the convention center, keynote address speeches, and acceptance speeches by the presidential candidates.
The week of each presidential convention, Línea Abierta will air a special, two-hour extended edition at noon, Pacific Time, Monday through Thursday, culminating with a two-hour live broadcast of the acceptance speech on Thursday evening (projected time: 6 PM Pacific).
Radio Bilingüe builds on a decades-long tradition covering elections from the Latino perspective, including its first-of-a-kind, live, bilingual broadcast of the national presidential conventions in 1984 and a subsequent, extensive coverage in Spanish in 2004.
At an undisclosed time on Thursday, June 12, Hobart & William Smith Colleges will host an emergency preparedness conference involving a “mock disaster” and an emergency response drill. The mock disaster will include sound simulations– yells, screams, sirens, and gun shots. Associate Dean of Campus Safety and Student Conduct Montrose Streeter assures community members that this is only a drill.
Organized by Student Affairs and Campus Security, the event will take place throughout the day. Streeter and Cal Brown, Director of Campus Security, played instrumental roles in planning this conference.
The morning will consist of classroom training, an historical overview of school violence, and sessions directed at law enforcement training. The mock disaster will take place in the afternoon at an undisclosed time and will involve members of Student Affairs. During this drill, the Colleges will test their recently purchased 3-N (National Notification Network) Emergency Notification System among HWS staff on campus.
