Dolores Huerta was one of the main organizers behind the United Farm Workers movement alongside Cesar Chavez, but her name is much less recognized and her legacy is often diminished.

Many students know that they should negotiate their salary before accepting a job. But did you know that you can also negotiate your benefits?

Join Executive-in Residence Kyle Samuel ’92, President of M&T Insurance Agency and Senior Vice President of M&T Bank, for “A CC Student’s Guide to Negotiating Total Compensation”. Kyle will discuss all of the soft benefits that companies offer their employees – from health insurance and paid vacation days to student loan repayment – and how you can feel empowered to lobby for the benefits you want.

RSVP on Handshake! Thursday, April 4, 12:15pm in Gates Common Room. Lunch provided.

Every Monday from 3-5 pm swing by Innovation at CC for Creative Mondays!

We will have collaging materials, paint, paper, drawing materials, and more! The event is unstructured, so students may stay as long as they want and work on anything they want. So come by and doodle, experiment with materials, write, work on a sketchbook, take a break from your thesis (or get inspired for your thesis), start a side project, hangout, and mess around! No creative experience required.

And if you need ideas, Jane Hilberry, Professor of English and Creativity, will be there to help jumpstart your creative process.

3-5 pm at Innovation at CC (232 E. Cache la Poudre St.)
