Research about domestic
 work, domestic workers, and domestic-worker organizing 
is an abundant and growing field. The attention garnered
 by domestic workers’
 organizing, both nationally and internationally, spurs exchanges between scholars and organizers that have the potential to enrich the work of both groups, providing theoretical, historical, and empirical context to the work of organizers, and providing scholars with an understanding of the priority issues that domestic workers address. This conference assess the current state of this burgeoning field—highlighting scholarly accomplishments, areas of debate, and under-explored issues—and proposes next steps for this historic interchange.

Event Description:
Speakers: Leon G. Billings and Thomas C. Jorling

The Earth Institute presents Origins of Environmental Law Lecture Series Description: Introduction to Early Environmental Legislation, Pre-1969.  

This seminar is part of a semester-long lecture series entitled The Origins of Environmental Law: Regulation and Evolution. Leon G. Billings and Thomas C. Jorling are the two senior staff members who led the Senate environment subcommittee which originated and developed major environmental legislation in the 1970s, including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Superfund Act. Over the course of a single decade, Congress enacted a series of environmental laws that defined the direction and character of environmental policy in the US and globally. Learn about the process that led to these seminal laws from the writers of the legislation themselves.

This talk will cover the basics of the Clean Air Act. It will look at everything from the impact of air pollution episodes, to identifying key players and influences, to examining the evolution of specific provisions within the law. It will also examine the role of lobbyists, citizen suits and judicial review, and the public health premise for the legislation.

RSVP is required for this event. Please note this lecture is part of a regularly scheduled course. Guests will join registered students in the class for the lecture and discussion.

The Center for Career Education’s (CCE) On-Campus Recruiting Program (OCR) brings employers to campus for the purpose of meeting, interviewing and recruiting students. On-Campus Interviewing (OCI) is a critical component to the success of the On-Campus Recruiting program for both students and employers alike.

Based on recent employer and student feedback, we have updated our OCI policies and procedures. To ensure that everyone is made aware of these updates, all students must gain or re-gain OCI access*. Students who attend this event will be granted OCI access within two business days of the training.

In this training, we will provide students with an overview of The Center for Career Education services and the ways in which they can best prepare for their job search. We will also review how to search and apply for jobs and internships using LionSHARE, CCE’s online job database and recruiting system. Largely, we will speak about the On-Campus Recruiting Program, with a particular focus on on-campus interviews. Students will learn how to best prepare for on-campus interviews, become aware of both student and employer expectations throughout this process, and most importantly, learn how to utilize available resources while navigating the job search and interview process.

*Please keep in mind that if you had OCI access prior to 7/1/2013 and are currently enrolled at Columbia, your OCI access was turned off as new policies are now in place. You must complete the On-Campus Recruiting Program Overview training to re-gain access.

This workshop will be offered on:

This sessionÂ’s speaker is Mike Barry CCÂ’04. Mike has spent the last 10 years fusing his interests in entertainment, news, and politics into something resembling a career.
