Quick guide to making short educational videos on Thurs Jan 14, 2-4 pm 4. Quick guide to articles, listicles, blogs and infographics on Tues Jan 19, 2-4 pm. See more here.

DSL Diversity Day of Dialogue - March 21, 2014
The DSL Diversity Day of Dialogue is an all day, off-site retreat just for DSL personnel, so pre-registration is required. The purpose is to bring together staff from across various DSL divisions to participate in a day of workshops, speakers, community building, action, and reflection centered on issues of culture, identity, and social justice at MIT and beyond.  We expect participants to become even better prepared and confident to assist and work with MIT's wonderfully diverse students on these issues.
