"Ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have." - James Baldwin
Reminder that the Banse seminar this week is on Friday
News from the School Leadership
On Monday UW President Ana Mari Cauce reminded us that our community here at UW is large yet loving. We hope you can be with, or be in good touch with, the people in your life who are supportive and uplifting. Whether the election results are those you hope for or those you most fear, it is best to be with people who care about you. If you find that despite practicing self-care and reaching out to others, your stress or anxiety remains hard to manage and makes your daily activities difficult to carry out, do not hesitate to reach out. The School of Oceanography can't help you if we don't know that we should try.
