Join us 11am - Noon, Thursday, Sept. 19 in Library Fishbowl! What is the role of community—as a concept, an outcome, and an entity—in a liberal education, and how can community contribute to student success? How do students experience community, on and off campus? This webinar will examine emerging definitions of community, ongoing efforts to create inclusive pathways for engagement, and ways community-based practices can advance inclusive excellence. From multiple institutional perspectives, presenters will explore how a collective understanding of community can shape a commitment to equity and student success.
There will be time for Q&A during the webinar.

Join us for this webinar in the Library Fishbowl on Tuesday, October 1 from 11am-12pm.
Census data tells the American story. By exploring how the United States has changed--and is changing--students and researchers are not only able to examine large demographic and geographic shifts, but also intimate personal histories and changing neighborhoods. How have Harlem's demographics shifted since 1900? Which cities saw the greatest demographic change due to the Great Migration? Where have traditional immigrant communities thrived, and where are more recent immigrants choosing to settle?
Professor Rebecca C. Hyde shows how students can tell these stories and more using Social Explorer, a data visualization and mapping tool currently enhancing over 350 research libraries in the U.S. With the census in the news daily, this is a timely webinar for all data and social science librarians, and for anyone interested in examining the patterns that emerge from massive, longitudinal data sets.
Presenter Rebecca Hyde is an Associate Professor and Research & Instruction Librarian at Saint Louis University's Pius XII Memorial Library. Rebecca has spent nearly twenty years working in Federal Depository Libraries and exploring the secret life of the U.S. Census. She works extensively with students and researchers to help them fully utilize the power of Census data for historical and current population analysis. Before joining the faculty at Saint Louis University in 2011, Rebecca worked at the University of California, San Diego and Northwestern University.
