'Month of Kindness' Slated

The University's Hillel Foundation and the Dean of Students Office are sponsoring a Month of Kindness in November. The goal of the month's activities is to unite the University community in paying closer attention to relationships and participating in acts of kindness.

"UConn is a university that is committed to tolerance, pluralism and community," says Debbie Rubenstein, executive director of the Hillel

Foundation. "The University enables cultural and religious centers to work together to create an environment of openness.

"We hope each department and every student group will co-sponsor this initiative."

A planning meeting will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 4:30 p.m. in the Student Union, Room 306. All faculty, staff and students interested in participating in the Month of Kindness are encouraged to attend.
