Mass Transit performs at Town Hall meeting Sept. 25
On Sept. 25, Professor Jesse Tauriac and social justice theater troupe, Mass Transit hosted a Town Hall open forum in deWitt Hall. This was to provide updates on diversity inclusion on campus and engage the community in values regarding racial equality.
Professor Tauriac highlighted the numerous advancements the Donahue Institute for Ethics, Diversity, and Inclusion have already implemented that promote diversity inclusion on campus. This included climate and cultural climate surveys sent out to students and faculty and the eight employee Intercultural Competence Workshops that have already taken place.
Three Mass Transit actors performed monologues from their original production “Difficult Conversations: On Race Gender and Power”. These scenes depicted harsh situations individuals of color have regularly experienced. Mass Transit had the goal of students being the ones to implement change and understand why certain things are said to others.
“Find someone new and make a better place,” said Mass Transit performer Joseph Lymous.
New Shuttle App
Ride Systems, a real-time GPS shuttle and bus tracking application has been introduced to Lasell’s shuttle system for the fall semester. Students can access this service on mobile devices or desktops to track where the shuttles are at all times. The app uses a map of the Lasell campus, displaying a small icon that moves in real-time wherever the shuttle travels. There’s an option to search certain stops, where students can “favorite” or bookmark a certain stop. Users can also create an alert, which sends a notification when the shuttle is approaching. Students can download the Ride Systems app from the App Store or Google Play store and search Lasell College, or access it through the shuttle section on the MyLasell app.
