Cooked: Survival by zip code

Showtimes 10/24, 10/26, 10/28, see website for times

It's widely known that extreme weather conditions disproportionately harm people in lower-income areas, but it's chilling to see the laser precision with which this happens. In examining the 1995 Chicago heat disaster, Peabody Award-winning filmaker Judith Helfand looks at exactly why and how a zip code can turn into a death sentence in a major Midwestern city. Helfand connects the dots between economic disparity, climate change, and racial segregation, finding an often-deadly link between them.

Mission Week Soup With Substance

by Marquette University Center for Peacemaking

Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2020, Alumni Memorial Union, Room 157, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

For Indigenous people for time immemorial, education was intricately woven through every aspect of their daily lives. Access to these life affirming teachings was only a matter of being a part of family and community. Outside of these communities, education was a much more formalized endeavor and continues to grow in complexity. The consequence for Indigenous youth was inequitable access to higher education.

True to its mission, the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at Marquette University eased that door open for two Wisconsin tribal members. In celebration of its 50th year at Marquette University, Mr. Robin Carufel (who was part of the 1973-74 EOP cohort) and Sir Lawrence Tender (who is a current EOP student and McNair Scholar) will share their respective inspirational journeys to and through college.
