Community Conversations

How do we know and understand one another? How can we support you? Are we open to being a part of each other’s stories?

Through the World Café method, the Phillip’s neighborhood community, organizations and small businesses, along with the Saint Mary’s University community (e.g., students, alumni, faculty and staff) will explore our relationship and how we can be in community in a more meaningful and reciprocal way.  

Held in the Saint Mary’s University Center, Phillips community members are encouraged to attend this free event, especially those who are involved with non-profit organizations or small businesses.

This morning event is free and open to all. Although this June’s event is the second in a series of four Saint Mary’s University sponsored Community Conversations, attendance at prior or future conversations is not required.

This campus initiative is managed by the M.A. in Organizational Leadership program, in partnership with the Hendrickson Institute grants program and THREE E Consulting.

Please register below by Friday, June 20.
