End Day Hispanic Heritage Month (Multi-Day Event)
Come join us for various educational and social events hosted by Suffolk University Hispanic Association and the Office of Diversity Services!
End Day Sukkot (Multi-Day Event)

Jewish holyday: Sukkot (the Festival of the Huts) takes place 5 days after Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) and commemorates the 40 year period that the Jewish people wandered in the desert after their enslavement in Egypt, during which Moses was given the Torah on Mt. Sinai and they lived in temporary shelters. The Season of Our Rejoicing, as it is also known, is celebrated by building a sukkah (hut) that Jews make their “home,” where they eat, entertain, and sometimes even sleep for the 7 day festival, in thanksgiving for G-d’s protection and the harvest.[i]

1:00 PM - 2:30 PM An Unusual Capital - Berlin 25 Years after the Fall of the Wall
After 1945 Berlin, Germany' s traditional capital, quickly became a focal point of East-West confrontation and a symbol of Western resilience against Soviet dominance. In 1989 it regained its original status and has since become the vibrant political and cultural capital of the new Germany and a true city of the world.
The Honorary Rolf Schütte, Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany and former head of the Department of Foreign Relations and Protocol of the city of Berlin, will illustrate how atypical a capital Berlin has become and why it has continued to attract creative people from all over the world.
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Encouraging Students to Learn in Class (Workshop for faculty)

4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Inside Leadership Series: Mo Cowan

Mo Cowan is a former U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and grew up as the only Black student in a white school.  His story is about the emotional tug between the desire to be accepted by the larger white world versus the reality that to do so means rejecting many of the black friends he grew up with.  How does one juggle desire for success and loyalty to family/community when the two seem in conflict?

Hear his story at the upcoming Inside Leadership Series. The series introduces this generation's "self-made leaders" to the next by featuring successful business leaders who have used education, innovation, and collaboration to succeed in life. Leaders are interviewed by Larry Stybel, Executive in Residence at the Sawyer Business School before a student audience.

Past Inside Leadership Speaker podcasts are available online.
