Addie Domske '12 and Anna Richards '72 will explore their greatest passions during our first online TITAN Talk in their talk, "Forever Shaken: Changing how we view language and group dynamics in a post-pandemic world."
We are all shaken as a society by this global pandemic—but will we remember that feeling of personal insecurity once we collectively flatten the curve and a vaccine is made readily available? Addie Domske (BA, M.Div, MSW) will bring her clinical training in systems group theory and her professional life as a theologian and activist to challenge us to be truly changed by what we have learned about society—our collective group—during these chaotic, pandemic times.
As we contemplate reopening the economy how do we operationalize the impact of COVID- 19 into our societal decision making process? What have we learned and how will that knowledge shape the new normal? Richards, social justice advocate and president of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro NAACP, will highlight some ramifications of the social and economic pause of the last 60 days and will lead a conversation about the implications for the future.
Easy access to the opportunity to support students during this time:
As the pandemic continues to impact our nation, our Leadership Team anticipates upcoming financial hardships for our students. Our students are facing challenges like parental job loss, limited opportunities for summer employment, and the need to help their family pay the bills. These situations will impact their ability to complete their education. Many of you have been calling and emailing asking this: How can we help bring back the Titans?
We recognize that most people have had significant disruptions to their lives but if you are in a position to give, we would respectfully ask that you consider a gift of any size to help our students during this time. Please help us Bring Back the Titans at www.givecampus.com/schools/westminstercollege.
