A Message From President Eileen Schwalbach:
- We will open the academic year with our All-University Workshop for faculty, staff, and administration by discussing diversity and inclusion.
- Students will have many opportunities to join in conversations about issues of race.
- A prayer service for peace will be held after classes begin.
Listen to our reflections:
How do communities respond to tragedies? Lynn Woehrle talks about professionally trained organizations and people working for peace, rebuilding, and change for better.
What can we learn from tragedy? How can we grow intellectually? Shawnee Daniels-Sykes believes compassion is the foundation for understanding diverse people and ideas.
How do we sit around a table and really listen to the other? Sister Joan Penzenstadler, vice president for mission and identity, discusses the importance of contemplative dialogue.
What are the natural, biological ways in which we heal? Tammy Scheidegger, associate professor of counseling, discusses how we're naturally wired to socially heal.
