About POLICE: The Other Side of 9-1-1

What is it like to run towards danger while others run away? What is it like to make decisions that can mean life or death in a matter of seconds? What is the reality of being a police officer? Join us for a panel discussion with Portland police officers to learn what they face each day on the job and gain a better understanding of the stress and emotional toll unique to their career in law enforcement.

About Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

This series deals with race in Oregon, both historically and up to the present time, to provide learning experiences that support the development of racial identity and sensitivity.

Each month, Kennedy School hosts a presentation on a different topic of ethnicity and racial elements in Oregon history, given by educators and/or experts in the topic at hand. The aim is to provide educational and learning experiences that support the development of intercultural sensitivity and racial identity.
