We've had an exciting month for the Local to Global community. I created a passive event for Black History Month that taught my community about several predominate Black individuals that aren't typically known. There were four categories; The Arts, Civil Rights, In Milwaukee and STEM. Each of the categories has a picture of a person who contributed to this category along with a brief description. If residents figured out who the individual was, they received a prize (it was candy).
Our community also paired with another Cambridge Community to do another Study Abroad-type event. Students came and learned in-depth about the study abroad programs UWM offers as well as various ways to fund the trips. We all such an amazing time talking about studying abroad that I forgot to take pictures. (My bad!) Several residents seemed to be interested in doing a study abroad program and this event seemed to help solidify where they wanted to go.
I can't wait to see what this next month brings and how our community continues to learn and grow!
Until next time,
