World Kindness Day is celebrated on November 13, which happens to land on a Sunday this year. With the Veterans Day holiday on the Friday before (11/11), WWU will celebrate Kindness Day on campus on Thursday, Nov. 10! We hope you’ll swing by the Kindness Booth in Red Square and the Miller Hall Collaborative Space between 9 a.m. and noon to get a little refill on kindness in preparation for World Kindness Day!

WWU will host two "Intervening to Stop Bias Incidents" workshops for students, faculty and staff at 4 p.m. on Nov. 10 and 16 in Viking Union 565.
