The Resource Center will reopen after the Wesleyan quarantine period ends on Monday, February 22nd at 12noon. Our operational hours for the rest of the semester will be Sunday-Friday from 12pm-8pm. If you need to check out a book from the RC, you can see what books are available in the library by checking out our catalogue. You can also check out books from the RC or request a book to be purchased through the FGLI Textbook Fund (even if you are studying remotely- we will ship the book to you). Visit our website (https://www.wesleyan.edu/resourcecenter/programs.html) for more details.
Also starting this semester, students can reserve a room in the RC (the spare office which contains a large desk, a comfortable office chair, and a clear view of the street outside) for studying, working, and relaxing by using The RC Calendly. If you do not show up within the first 10 minutes of your reservation, the space will be free for anyone’s use. To claim your time slot, simply check in with an RC employee in the front room before using the space!
Beyond providing academic supplies, The RC staff is eager to continue engaging with the Wesleyan student body on creating meaningful virtual community spaces for underrepresented and marginalized students. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to stay in the loop about our programs, initiatives, and opportunities that can benefit you and our community. Also check out the Black History Month 2021 calendar on Ujamaa’s Instagram for other great programs to attend this month. If you have an idea for a program or initiative that would help support underrepresented student populations on campus, please reach out to us email@example.com with your suggestions.
