The Community Engagement Committee continues to plan events to keep our community together – although virtually for now. We have been energized by the participation in the various events that have been offered. We seek to be informational, connectional and educational in the types of events being offered. We must also confess that we are looking for fun ways to keep building on our strong interpersonal relationships.
There are many exciting events coming up in the month of June. Please view the calendar below.
The Chats with VP sessions have been very popular, therefore they will continue in rotation. These open and informal conversations provide opportunities for faculty and staff to ask questions about the state of the College, impact of the pandemic, plans for future reopening of the campus, division updates and more. You are also invited to attend the President’s office hours, that information will be sent directly from her office.
Dr. Atiya Smith and l invite you to attend the new virtual employee development event - Resilience in Times of Changes on Thursday, June 11th at 1:00p.m. More information about the event coming soon.
Dean of the Chapel, Beth O'Malley has helped ease the stress from the stay-at-home requirements by offering Mindfulness via Instagram. She invites you to a 5-week Koru Mindfulness group that runs Thursdays May 28th - June 25th, 11:30a.m. - 12:30 p.m. There’s no cost for this except 50+ minutes of your time to relax and build calming skills. Please email Beth directly for Zoom link. And don’t forget to workout with Erika Moyer to get rid of Zoom fatigue!
We have had some very competitive games on Kahoot. In June, our Career Development & Experiential Education team (better known as Lisa, Maura, Bre and Amani) will be our game show hosts. We also have lined up a very special guest host for July. So, read voraciously for all the obscure facts you can find, practice your math skills using Sodoku and other games, dabble in some sports trivia, and explore the many fields of science to prepare you for the fierce competitions that lie ahead! And throw in a little virtual Bingo practice for good measure!
