It is with bittersweet emotions that we announce the departure of our summer Resource Center Intern Michelle Hunt and our PILI Fellow Oladeji Tiamiyu. This summer, Michelle worked with RSI’s Resource Center Director Nicole Wilmet and explored topics like diversity and inclusion and restorative justice, while Oladeji worked with Associate Director Eric Slepak-Cherney on online dispute resolution projects. We thank Michelle and Oladeji for all of their hard work this summer and wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
