Electronics Drive and GradBag Drive

Friday, April 27th from 10am-2pm (Milas Hall IT Entrance)

The electronics drive to a chance to dispose of all unused electronics you have at Olin or at home so that they can be reused if possible and recycled if not. Please wipe any information/data off of devices you are dropping off. The recycling company will not be responsible for any lost information. Please also do not bring monitors or TVs.

The Grad Bag drive is a group facilities works with for senior move out donations. They partner with non-profit groups such as Let’s Get Ready to prepare low-income students for college. Grad Bag’s addition to the organization is lightly used dorm supplies for the low-income students. If any faculty or staff have these items from children that have gone to college this would be the perfect opportunity to unload them! Facilities will add these items to the large drive that will take place over Commencement weekend for the seniors. Please see this link for more information about the group.

-----------------------------------------

Asian and Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) is a month of celebration, education, and reflection of the contributions of Asian and Pacific Islanders who have enriched America’s history and are instrumental in its future success.

While this month of celebration is held nationally in May, there was a desire to create a series of programs available to the Olin and Babson community while classes were still in session. 

Asian/Pacific encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island).

Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month originated with Congress in 1977. In 1992 Congress passed a Public Law which annually designated May as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month. This month in particular was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.

In honor of this annual month of recognition,  all members in our community are encouraged to take some time to engage in open dialogue, reflect, celebrate, and attend some of our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) community events.
