Damian Evans

The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (OMSA), Student Support Services (SSS, TRIO) and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion welcomes you to the 32nd Annual Taking Care of Business Celebration. This program celebrates the academic success and student leadership contributions to the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. The spirit of the annual Taking Care of Business program is to celebrate multicultural students as you have contributed to UW-Parkside and honoring the university’s mission. 

While these are unchartered times and not circumstances we would prefer, we appreciate your ability to be nimble and make the necessary adjustments to maintain your commitment as students, leaders, and graduates. This is a unique time during your academic journey and a unique approach to this celebration for our respective offices due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, your ability to adjust and participate in this virtual celebration through these difficult times is applauded. 

Again, I welcome you to the 32nd annual Taking Care of Business Celebration and I would be remissed if I did not request for you to join me in thanking my colleagues, listed below.

Dear Amazing Graduates: 

Congratulations on “taking care of business” and receiving your degree from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside! What an amazing accomplishment! 

In these unprecedented times, I imagine that you are experiencing a certain level of uncertainty and maybe fear about the future. While the emotion of fear and thoughts of uncertainty is normal, do not let them become a roadblock to achieving greatness in whatever form that might be. You are perfectly positioned and capable of facing any challenge the world may present. You all have the power to bring about the change that is so desperately needed in this world, and I have no doubt that you will rise to the task. 

In closing, I offer the following quotes of inspiration and encouragement: 

"I am" are two of the most powerful words because what you put after them shapes your reality.—Unknown 

"If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door." —Unknown 

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” —Unknown

Associate Vice Chancellor of Human Resources, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Congratulations graduates, leaders in the community, and achievers of high levels of academic excellence. Your achievements are to be commended even more, because they are realized in the most challenging of times.  In the context of these times, I want to focus on hope and a call for action.   

Clear blue skies are a sign of hope. There is hope for our climate in the form of clear blue skies that can be seen over many of the larger cities in the world as the result of a decline in the burning of fossil fuels, because in these challenging times, people are driving less, taking public transportation less. These clear blue skies give us a glimpse of what is possible – a healthy climate if we curb our reliance on fossil fuel.   

But these challenging times have also magnified many of the problems in today’s society: the low minimum wage of frontline workers; the lack of affordable health care for everyone; inadequate affordable housing and homelessness; inequities in computer and internet access; and extreme political partisanship.   

In these particularly changing times, I want to congratulate you on all your achievements and call you to action. Use your drive to persist and your talents to effect and lead change in the world for the better.  Your leadership is needed now more than ever. In the words of Martin Luther King, “We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late … This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.”1 

In your capacity as sociologists, politicians, environmental scientists, teachers, doctors, business managers, artists, coaches and from all the other disciplines that make up a healthy, vibrant, and diverse community, continue the steps to right the wrongs in our world. Think of clear blue skies as a hopeful reminder of what you can realize through change that is possible.  

Dr. Chris Zanowski
Director of Student Support Services TRIO
