The Impeachment Proceedings: What You Need to Know, speakers, Thomas Halper, David Jones, and Eric Gander
If you’ve watched any coverage of hearings in the US House of Representatives about the prospect of impeaching President Trump, you’ll know that there are sharp divisions among Democratic and Republican legislators about fairness, about the kinds of actions that should trigger impeachment proceedings, and of course, about the facts themselves. What is the history of presidential impeachment in the United States? What did the framers of the Constitution have in mind when they wrote impeachment clauses into Articles I and II? Join us for a nonpartisan, community discussion of impeachment. Political Science Professors David Jones and Tom Halper together with Communication Studies Professor Eric Gander will provide an overview of the history of impeachment and explain what to expect as this process unfolds. They will devote most of their time to your questions about this important national conversation.
Coming in January…

10:00 PM-4:30 PM, Center for Teaching and Learning, Newman Library, Room 647
CTL: Writing Retreat
Full-time and part-time faculty, graduate students who teach, and staff are all welcome to join us! The 2018-23 Baruch College Strategic Plan highlights the value of research in enriching the classroom experience for both teachers and students, and pledges to support innovative research, scholarship, and creative inquiry at the College. In the spirit of this pledge, the Center for Teaching and Learning will offer a two-day writing retreat for members of the Baruch community to focus on their research, writing, and creative work in a collegial environment, with opportunities to discuss writing strategies and writing support in the classroom. The CTL will provide a quiet space to write; coffee; a nourishing lunch; opportunities to talk about writing and teaching strategies; a separate space to take breaks, network, and eat; and outlets for charging devices. Participants will get dedicated time over one or two full days to work in a distraction-free environment. For more information, visit https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/ctl/event/writing-retreat/.
