TITAN Talks

Westminster College is in the business of creating human beings at our best. This year, we invited alumni, students and friends in the community to learn from our very own faculty scholars and alumni business leaders on how we can all live our lives with a mindful purpose.

Each month, we sat back and developed our best selves through the scope of research- and wisdom-based education, learning how our best selves impact community. We didn’t want to keep this wisdom to ourselves, so here it is, neatly packaged for your viewing pleasure! Feel free to watch, take notes and send us what you learned!
