Living Through a Triple Pandemic: A Facilitated Conversation


Dec. 1, 2020, 3:30pm to 5pm

Office/Remote Location



2020 has been an unprecedented, rollercoaster year. Some have even referred to 2020 as apocalyptic and trying times. While COVID-19 brought the entire world to a halt, the coronavirus is not the only crisis Americans are living through. There are 3 pandemics simultaneously affecting our communities: COVID-19, social injustice, and economic insecurity. Navigating life as a college student in the midst of a single crisis is challenging. Navigating life as a college student amid concurrent crises is inordinate. Join us for a facilitated conversation in which we will engage in dialogue about the pandemics affecting us today and how we can take action to help ourselves and others.

By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Engage in dialogue with institutional leaders regarding mental health, activism, service learning, and student perspectives
  • Have a space and time for clarity, courage, and truth 
  • Leave with action items to empower your activism and support your wellness moving forward
