Winston Center Collaborations
Knowing that the Winston Center cannot encompass all the leadership community has to offer, we have partnered with key centers, departments, and institutes across campus to assure all vital points of ethical leadership are being presented and discussed. Some of our more prominent partnerships include the Lowell Institute’s Lowell Humanities Series, featuring Rebecca Skloot, author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and Campus School Volunteers, featuring Dick and Rick Hoyt, famed father/son marathon team.

Synopsis of Salt of the Earth: At New Mexico's Empire Zinc mine, Mexican-American workers protest the unsafe work conditions and unequal wages compared to their Anglo counterparts. Ramon Quintero (Juan Chacon) helps organize the strike, but he is shown to be a hypocrite by treating his pregnant wife, Esperanza (Rosaura Revueltas), with a similar unfairness. When an injunction stops the men from protesting, however, the gender roles are reversed, and women find themselves on the picket lines while the men stay at home.
