Are you self-critical? Research shows that self-criticism is not a very effective way to motivate ourselves. Instead, self-compassion is a key to improving your mental wellness. Our workshop will teach you skills to be a kinder, more relaxed, and productive you! Read more here about the benefits of self-compassion:


Oct. 12 and Nov. 11, 10:30am-12:00pm, Neal Marshall Black Cultural Center 2nd Floor.

My Brothers’ Keeper (MBK) and My Sisters’ Keeper (MSK) are support groups dedicated to acknowledging the needs of undergraduate and graduate African American students. MBK and MSK meet monthly at the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center and provide safe spaces to share honest thoughts and experiences of being African American at a predominately White institution. MBK and MSK meetings provide opportunities for the reflection of feelings and concerns related to contemporary and historical issues at the local, national, and global level.

Eva Nogales will be giving the 2016 James P. Holland Memorial Lecture on 

Monday, October 24, 2016 at 4:00 p.m in Myers 130.


The title of her talk is “Cryo-EM for the visualization of structure, interaction and dynamics” 


After her seminar, there will be a post-seminar reception outside of Myers 130 to which all are invited. We especially encourage students to take this opportunity to interact with Dr. Nogales, a world-renowned biophysicist
Dr. Nogales is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator; a Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of California, Berkeley; and Senior Faculty Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Dr. Nogales is an international leader in the use of electron microscopy to determine protein structure. Her work has lead to seminal breakthroughs in understanding the structure and function of cytoskeletal proteins and transcription factor complexes, among other cellular structures and processes. 

For more information about her work see:

This lecture series commemorates the legacy of James P. Holland, an amazing IU Biology faculty member who was dedicated to the mentoring of students from under-represented groups and increasing diversity in the sciences.  

For more information about the Holland lecture see:

We hope to see you there.
