January ’19- Deliberations and community policy

Happy 2019 everyone!  This coming Friday, January 11th, in Silverman 4-510will be our first meeting of the year (and our meeting for January). We’ll be teaming up with SAFE (Scientific Assemblies For Everyone), led by Dr. Chris Forman, to learn how deliberation can be utilized for community-driven policy formation. Chris will provide a brief introduction on methods of deliberation, and then we’ll engage in a group policy deliberation on an important topic: improving mental health in academia. Here is a review article on intervention to improve mental health in higher education, as well as resources and figures from the American Psychological Association on campus mental health.

Don’t forget to register so we can accurately order our pizza and snacks for the meeting; see everyone on Friday!
