During this disturbing time, Suffolk recognizes the war in Ukraine might be directly and significantly impacting members of the college community. Through the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding, in partnership with Mental Health and Wellness Services, the college will be offering support to all those affected by the conflict. We stand united in our condemnation of violence and in our support for all people suffering as a result.

As a way to educate, create awareness, and stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding will be hosting “Why Ukraine: a Brief History” featuring Dr. Kristina Lucenko. A professor of writing and rhetoric at Stony Brook University, Dr. Lucenko is a Ukrainian-American who has written and researched extensively about the country and translated some of its leading poets into English. Her lecture will touch upon the troubled history of the region, as well as the lived experience of her family.

Please join Dr. Lucenko on Thursday, March 10th at 9:30 a.m. in the Southampton Building, Room 22, for this valuable and informative conversation. For more information, please contact the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding at [email protected]
