This 75-minute film, directed by Roxana Walker-Canton, examines the intersection of race, class and gender for Black women professors and administrators working in U.S. colleges and universities today. Through their diverse narratives, from girlhood to the present, black women from different disciplines share experiences that have shaped them, including segregated schooling as children, and the trials, disappointments and triumphs encountered in academia.
This event is part of a bi-weekly brown bag series at UWM showcasing and discussing issues related to women, multiculturalism, and diversity. Sponsored by the UWM Black Cultural Center, UWM Union Sociocultural Programming, and the UWM Women’s Resource Center. We invite graduate students across disciplines to join us for this film screening and dialogue about race, class, and gender in the academy.

Visit the High Performance Computing Web site under Upcoming Events for dates
This is a workshop on High Performance Computing (HPC) and High Throughput Computing (HTC) for scientists and engineers. The goal is to introduce the concepts of parallel computing to anyone whose research might benefit from parallel computation.
Introduction to Research Computing
Normally Tuesday and Thursday
9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
UWM's Research Computing support group is offering a FREE, two-day workshop on research computing and computer programming for anyone who uses computers as part of their research.
This course is an overview of computational research and an introduction to scientific programming. The primary goals are to help researchers determine what types of computational tools to use for their research, and to provide an introduction to computer use and computer programming.
Classes will be part lecture and part open discussion among researchers and support staff. We hope that these meetings will result in the spread of knowledge in all directions and help establish new connections between researchers with common interests. Registration required.
