News and Announcements

United Way Campaign Starts Today
united way
Faculty and staff are encouraged to "Live United" by supporting the University's United Way campaign, which kicks off today. Serving the area for decades, the United Way of Greater Rochester is taking a novel approach this year: The organization is funding evidence-based practices proven to help tackle the five priorities identified by the community. Learn more about how your support helps those who need it most and donate now. And keep checking @Rochester in the coming weeks for updates.

Fraternity Raises Funds for Hillside
Rochester’s chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon national fraternity raised more than $1,300 for the Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection program at the Hillside Family of Agencies.

Heavy Snowfall Expected
Significant snowfall is possible in the Rochester area through Friday afternoon. The Facilities snow removal staff will work to keep University roadways, parking lots, and walkways as clear as possible. The wind and potentially drifting snow will likely be the biggest challenge. Report any hazardous weather-related conditions to the Snow Removal Hotline at 275-0000.

Interested in a South Asian Affinity Group?
A reception of Indian refreshments will be offered at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 4, in the Welles-Brown Room of the Rush Rhees Library before the Neilly Series Lecture with Indian author Abraham Verghese. The intent of the reception is to gauge the level of interest in creating a new affinity group for the South Asian community at Rochester. For more information, visit the South Asian Professional Networking Association Web site.

Black History Month Family Day
