March 3 – Teatro Milago (Miracle Theatre) presents Judge Torres. At 3:00pm in Jacoby Auditorium. Woven with magical realism and Mayan folktales, Salvadoran playwright Milta Ortiz created this new work inspired by her own immigrant experiences. Judge Torres is a story of triumph against the odds; Xiomara made her rise from undocumented immigrant to one of only a few Latina judges in Oregon. She brings diversity to the bench not often seen in Oregon or across the nation – as a Latina but also as a child abuse victim and product of the foster care system. The performance is FREE and sponsored by the ASUCC Leadership Team and Student Engagement Office.

March 4 – Dialogue with Deb. From 1:00-2:30pm in WCH 15. Please plan to join UCC President Thatcher for an informative session on what is happening at UCC.

Off Campus Leadership and Learning Opportunities

We the People Congressional Intern Scholarship. This is a new scholarship program to enable Oregonians who could otherwise not afford to participate in a congressional internship to gain experience in U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley’s Washington D.C. and Portland offices. The scholarship is open to all individuals seeking financial support while interning on a full- or part-time basis. Scholarships are available for full-time or part-time internships in Washington D.C., or a part-time internship in Portland. Scholarship positions last between 10 and 14 weeks during the fall, winter, spring, and summer terms. Recipients of the ‘We the People’ Congressional Intern Scholarship will be a part of the traditional intern cohort, and receive the same internship experience as non-scholarship interns. In Merkley’s offices, interns are integrated as part of the team, and staff invest in facilitating interns’ professional development. More information on internships with Merkley’s office can be found at https://www.merkley.senate.gov/services/students/internships.
