TO: Mills College Faculty and Staff
FROM: Beth Hillman
SUBJECT: Mills: Inside and Out

Dear all,

Today closes out Majors@Mills week, designed to give students a chance to visit 55 open classes and talk about majors, minors, internships, career pathways, and spring courses with faculty, staff, and students. I'm grateful to our faculty, the Provost's Office team, and everyone else who supported our academic outreach this week.

Some Fridays are quiet, but the campus is humming today. The Center for Teaching and Scholarship, led by Associate Provost Cynthia Scheinberg, is holding its usual Friday Faculty Writing Salon in the F. W. Olin Library, our student athletes are competing in a swim meet at the Trefethen Aquatic Center and a volleyball match at Haas Pavilion, and the Center for Leadership, Equity, and Excellence is celebrating with a Boo Bash Dance at the Student Union this evening. The dance is but one of the Halloween activities planned by our Division of Student Life. A Floating Pumpkin Patch will be open to the public at the aquatic center on Sunday, and on October 31, we'll host family trick-or-treating on campus and Nic Van Dyke will take students to Sausalito for kayak trick-or-treating.

Next Wednesday, November 1, Mills is hosting two exciting lectures. The Jane Green endowed lecture in art history will be presented by Lawrence Rinder, director and chief curator of the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA), entitled "Art, Activism, and Audience Engagement: Reflections on the Role of Museums in Contemporary Society" at 7:00 pm in Lucie Stern 101. Richard Rothstein, senior fellow at from the Haas Institute at UC Berkeley, research associate of the Economic Policy Institute, and a fellow of the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, will lecture in the Student Union at 6:00 pm (so those of you keen on art and politics can attend both!) on his book, The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America (2017).

Next week, the Mills Community Farm will hold another Wednesday farmers market sale outside the Tea Shop, and then, on November 5, a community tree planting day and celebration. If you haven't already, consider downloading the MillsGo app for more details about these and other activities on campus.
