UTD will celebrate International Week, or iWeek, from March 6-10 to recognize cultural diversity on campus through showcases of food, dance and art. SG will have a booth at the Passport to the World event on March 6 at 1pm at the Plinth representing the United States. There will be additional events throughout the week including a bachata class, traditional tea ceremony and calligraphy class.
Blank Space Gallery
After its success last year, SG’s Student Affairs Committee is hosting the Blank Space Project, which aims to showcase student talent in art. Students who submit their artwork will be eligible for prizes and an opportunity to have their art displayed on campus later in the spring semester. The previous year’s artwork is on display on the second floor of the Student Union.
Women in Leadership Event
The Diversity, Equity and Belonging Committee of SG is hosting an event on March 31 from 5p.m. to 7 p.m. with two guest speakers. The workshop will focus on women in leadership roles including the struggles they faced to be in their positions. Students can come hear the speakers and enjoy snacks to learn more about the cause.

The SG elections board has been formed to organize the election process, and spring filing for senatorial seats is now open. Students can run for school specific or at-large seats. Both graduate and undergraduate students who are in good academic standing and are available during senate meeting times are encouraged to run.
