Spotlight on Care: Care & Justice

12:00-1:00pm Wednesday, January 29, 2020 The Commons

Each Wednesday at noon at The Commons, the series will feature a different topic related to well-being and care and include a component of guided practice. The series aims to devote time to considering the ways we practice care as individuals, in communities, and as a campus, full of resources to broaden understanding. It will highlight a variety of aspects of well-being, with special attention to the expectations of higher education.

On January 29, the event will focus Care & Justice and feature an opportunity to learn about the relationship between compassion and social justice, some theories about the linkages between compassion and justice, and to try a few practices to support your own efforts. Led by Kelly Overstreet (Urban Planning, School of Public Affairs and Administration), Ward Lyles (Urban Planning, School of Public Affairs and Administration).
