1. What Butler Center initiative connects self-identified undergraduate men with a faculty or staff mentor?
Answer: Men’s Leadership Initiative

2. What anniversary will the Butler Center celebrate in 2019?
Answer: 5 years

3. What are the two coordinator positions in the Butler Center?
Answer: Coordinator of Mentoring and Diversity Initiatives, Diversity & Inclusion Program Coordinator

4. What is the pronoun practice?
Answer: The pronoun practice invites all Colorado College community members to share their pronouns-if they wish-as they introduce themselves. This is an inclusive cultural practice and not a policy. This fluid practice is essential to creating an inclusive campus community where all aspects of people’s identities are respected and validated. There is no one way to engage the practice of introducing yourself and making room for others to do the same, without assumptions. The “option to pass,” recognizing identity fluidity, and honoring authenticity are key principles to our pronoun practice.

5. What Butler Center program matches students with faculty and staff hosts during breaks?
Answer: Friends of CC Host Program

Colorado College in collaboration with Temple Shalom and Temple Beit Torah is pleased to present SHALOM/SALAAM: A CELEBRATION OF JEWISH AND ARABIC MUSIC at Shove Chapel on Saturday March 2 at 7:00 pm. The concert unites klezmer fusion band Hal Aqua and The Lost Tribe with Middle Eastern ensemble Zuruna for a passionate concert of multicultural diversity. You can expect to hear soulful Arabic groove music, raucous klezmer tunes, and collaborative jamming that meets in the middle. Both bands feel strongly that in these times of divisiveness and fear of the “other,” it’s especially important for musicians to find common ground in songs of peace, love, and coexistence.

HAL AQUA AND THE LOST TRIBE play klezmer fusion -an exuberant musical experience, rooted firmly in traditional Jewish modes and melodies and driven by contemporary rhythms and danceable grooves.

Middle Eastern ensemble ZURUNA fosters the sensuous rhythms and sounds of music from North Africa, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Turkey, Israel and Palestine.

Tickets are $10 for community members and available at the Worner Center Information desk. Colorado College students, faculty and staff are free with a valid ID.

Mar 7, @ 07:30 pm, Mar 8, @ 07:30 pm, Mar 9, 2019 at 07:30 pm Celeste Theatre. Cornerstone Arts Center 825 N. Cascade.

*Every culture has its own stories and narratives. A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens – second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence. The opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives.

*Join us for an evening of dance featuring choreography by Dallo Fall, Patrizia Herminjard, Ron Jules, Debra Mercer and Pallavi Sriram along with five dance students: Emily Burnham ’19, Su Lynn Eu ’21, Maggie Mehlman ’19, Ankita Sharma ’21 and Haley Wright ’22.

*Tickets available at the Worner Student Center or at the door.
free with CC ID, $5.00 General public
