  • SCSU launches its very own podcast. It’s called Diversity in Higher Ed, and features Dr. Diane Ariza and Shante Hanks discussing today’s most important issues relating to diversity, equity and inclusion. Check it out! 
  • Voter registration broke a new record in Connecticut ahead of Election Day. More than 2.3 million residents registered this year! Good job! 

That’s all for this week, check back next week for more information on what’s going on in Connecticut.
