Welcome back to campus - whether virtual or in-person!
PossePlus Retreat: The State of Leadership: Community, Conflict, and Change Saturday, January 30, 2021 2-4:30 p.m. Virtual Event Registration Required HERE
Through Posse’s first-ever Virtual PossePlus Retreat, you'll have a unique opportunity
to talk about what leadership means in the now; in this powerful, world-altering moment.
How can your community come together to help lead the world forward? Where are the
opportunities for you to lead as an individual? How can we continue to build community
while we are physically distanced? And how might the upcoming election shift the social
and political dynamics for change within our country?
These and other questions will be considered at this year’s virtual retreat: The State
of Leadership: Community, Conflict, and Change. To spark the conversation, we’ll be
showing a dynamic video on some of the most compelling issues facing our world today.
Together, we will connect through a half-day of dialogue to consider the roles all
of us can play in driving the change we so desperately need.
Paint and Plant with SSC and Peace Garden Friday, March 26th, 2021 4-5:30 p.m. Young Main Lounge
At this event, you will be able to decorate a pot or upcycled container and use it
to plant a starter seed for the Peace Garden! Once the seeds have sprouted in your
artful containers, they will be transferred to the Garden to become a part of the
summer crop. It's a great way to celebrate the season, enjoy the ES community, and
make a positive impact on our campus environment.
Masks will be required at all times and attendance will be recorded. If you have questions,
contact Leah Bieniak (email@example.com) or Refugio Moreno (firstname.lastname@example.org).
