Please Join Us! Thursday, September 22, 2022, at 7 p.m. KOMOL RESTAURANT (RSVP Below)

It's been ❤️ THREE ❤️ LONG ❤️ YEARS ❤️ since we last gathered together for a CSIEME Dinner! But the CSIEME Dinner is BACK!!!


The FALL 2022 CSIEME Dinner will be held on Thursday, September 22, 2022 @ 7 p.m. at KOMOL Thai Restaurant, 953 E. Sahara Avenue, Suite #E-10, Las Vegas, NV, 89104, (702) 731-9268. KOMOL is located inside the very large Commercial Center. Coming from campus, head North on Maryland. Go two miles to Sahara (about 2 miles), turn left onto Sahara and go to the first light (about 1/10 of a mile). Turn left at that light onto Commercial Center Drive. You will immediately come to a small concrete road divider, when you do, turn right and drive alongside the divider until it ends (it's not very long), then turn immediately left and continue forward. KOMOL will be on your left in the middle of the block of businesses on that side (which is in the middle) of the Center. Here’s a link to KOMOL’s very robust menu: https://komolrestaurant.com/#


Please RSVP below! However, for the critical love of, and critical care for, our CSIEME community, if you’re not 🤒 feeling well 🤕, please stay home and take care of you! ❤️‍🩹We promise to invoke your spirit 🧘🏽‍♀️ and to share photos with you, and we will look forward to seeing you at the Spring 2023 CSIEME Dinner!


We are hoping that with this advanced notice everyone can arrange to join us, at least for part of the time (come early or late, even if just for a few minutes)—it is never the same when not everyone is there! If this is not possible, of course we understand and will still toast you and your accomplishments! If you know for sure you will not be able to join us in person, consider recording and then sending us a short video to say hello and to update us on what you are working on/doing in your personal, academic, professional life to share at the dinner!


For those of you new to this dinner—WELCOME! For the rest of you—WELCOME BACK!!


For all attendees, the purpose of the dinner is…to build, deepen, and sustain relationships as a part of a critically loving teacher-scholar-activist community.


For students, the purpose of this dinner is alsoto discuss, relative to your programs of study, where each of you are, what you have already and still want to accomplish this semester/academic year, and what you need from the community to achieve your goals.


As always, we will also be celebrating some important milestones at the dinner, as well as welcoming new members to the community. For many of you there was NO immediate graduation ceremony at all or no hooding ceremony or no College of Education ceremony, and for none of you did we get to recognize your accomplishment during a CSIEME Dinner! Many of others of you also completed important program benchmarks during this time period that we have also not yet had the chance to acknowledge and champion!


We will continue the CSIEME Dinner tradition of honoring continuing and new CSIEME program faculty and affiliate faculty! We are especially excited to have two new full-time, tenure-track CSIEME faculty joining us: Dr. Marla Goins and Dr. Danielle Mireles!!


As an FYI, this dinner is organized around:


1) the students that are in the CSIEME specializations at either the doctoral or masters level (and certificate programs), as well as CSIEME graduates who are still living locally/visiting the area;

2) masters and doctoral students in other specializations whose committees CSIEME core faculty chair or sit on as a member, as well as graduates who are still living locally/visiting the area; AND,

3) all affiliated/interested “others.”


The dinner is designed to be intersectionally inclusive and affirming, not cliquey, so if you know of other colleagues who would like to attend, please invite them and let us know they are coming. Also, please let us know if we missed someone that you know should be included based on the “organizing” criteria :-)


And, as is always the case, children, significant others, other family and friends are welcome to join us, just let us know they are coming!


REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING EVERYONE…and to continuing to build connections with veteran’s in, and newbies to, our community!


Don't forger to RVSP below!


Best,


Christine and Norma
