Transforming Community dialogue groups forming
The Summer 2007 Community Dialogues — part of the Transforming Community Project, a five-year endeavor examining race at Emory — is open to all members of the Emory community. Small study groups meet over breakfast, lunch or afternoon snacks and often discuss short readings, films or other relevant materials on topics related to race, how these issues have impacted the Emory community and how individuals and groups within the Emory community might engage in constructive action. Meals and reading materials are provided free to participants.

Four groups are planned for this summer. Sign up for a Community Dialogue by visiting the Transforming Community Project Web site at http://transform.emory.edu/. Registration is due by Friday, May 4. Participants will be notified by Wednesday, May 16, of their placement.

Vigil planned to remember Virginia Tech victims
The Office of Religious Life will hold a silent vigil to remember the victims of the Virginia Tech shootings. The community is invited to gather between Dobbs Center and Cox Hall at noon on Monday, April 23.

There will be a moment of silence followed by the tolling of the Cox Hall bell. Additionally, a candle-light vigil is being planned the same day at 8 p.m. on the Quadrangle.
