"Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust"

Sunday, February 16, 2020 (All day) to Sunday, March 8, 2020 (All day)

Millions of ordinary people witnessed the crimes of the Holocaust. "Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust," produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., explores how "neighbors"--workers, teenagers, policemen, religious leaders, business associates, teachers and friends--made individual choices that amounted to collaboration, complicity and, less frequently, resistance with regard to Nazi Germany’s persecution and murder of Jews.

Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture

Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - 12:30 pm to 1:20 pm

Gary Gute will present "The Creative Student and the Creative Context: What's Our Responsibility?" Creativity. Everyone thinks it's important, but there's not much agreement on what "it" is. More than 60 years ago, creativity established itself as a research domain. By 2020, what has the research taught us? What is creativity? Where can we find it in higher education? And why should we help students in all disciplines use more of it?
