Conversation on the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict

November 21, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm CST

Recent violent and deadly events in Israel and Palestine have reignited longstanding tensions on college campuses and in communities across the United States. Many of our students and employees are directly impacted because they have family and friends in the region. Others are searching for ways to support students and colleagues as they navigate how to engage in conversations that acknowledge the human aspects of a deeply contentious crisis.

As part of UWM’s educational and community-building programs, this panel will explore the context for the fast-moving events in Israel and Gaza. It will also provide an opportunity for civil and respectful discourse around this deeply divisive conflict, deepening our commitment to shared values, and laying the foundation for future events on this important subject.
