Get Proximate: A Community Dialogue

5:30 p.m. 
Room 105

If you could share something about yourself with your classmates so they could understand you better, what would it be? What would you want to know about them? What happens when we make assumptions about each other that aren’t true? Please join this community dialogue to learn more about yourself and your colleagues in the law school community. All are welcome. Snacks provided. RSVP HERE.
