From swimming lessons and ballroom dancing to classes and a walking club, the Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women’s summer programming focuses on the social, educational and wellness aspects of life.
Classes will feature relevant topics, such as Women in Islam and the Disability Rights Movement, and will be taught by UT faculty members Dr. Asma M. Abdel Halim, associate professor and interim chair of women’s and gender studies, and Dr. Ally Day, assistant professor of disability studies.
“There are a number of opportunities at UT this summer to be healthy, have fun, and relax while getting our work done,” said Dr. Shanda Gore, chief diversity officer and associate vice president for equity, diversity and community engagement. “We are all building a culture that everyone enjoys working in, and the Eberly programming is another option.”
Also new this summer is Crafternoons! This is a summer version of Adventure Fridays! Participants can stop by the Eberly Center, located in Tucker Hall Room 0168 any time during the extended session, whether it’s just for lunch or a break in the afternoon, and tap into their creative sides while making crafts to take with them. The sessions will include decorating flower pots, creating themed accessories for summer picnics, and completing fun coloring pages that will be displayed as the center’s fall art.
The center asks all participants to call 419.530.8570 to pre-register for classes, as space is limited.
