Wellness Workshops and Seminars
- We See You Collaborative Studio is a series that was designed to present students with a therapeutic space to exercise their creativity using language and images. We aim to empower students by teaching them therapeutic writing/creative techniques that they might do on their own. This semester previous participants/staff members Natasha Torres '15 and Kasper Alberico '18 will be guiding the space and hope to help students grow as creators as they learn about their own wellness and ways to manage their well-being.
Thursdays at 5:30PM in the Shaw Wellness Lounge
- Real, Raw, Right (IGD) Workshops seek to encourage individuals to explore the complexities of social identities (religion, race/ethnicity, gender, class, etc) to improve communication and relationships between individuals from different social backgrounds. Through experiential learning opportunities, Colgate Conversations fosters an understanding of how individual perspectives are rooted in systems of power and privilege and provides an opportunity for community members to work together across difference toward purposeful social change. Participants are encouraged to attend all classes offered during the spring semester.
