Community Conversations

The Purpose of this Conversation Is to Consider:

What is your story as a part of this community?  What do you need and what can you offer?  How can we work together?

Your participation is important to the success of the third in a series of four community conversations. Through the World Café method, the Phillip’s neighborhood community organizations and small businesses, residents and community members, and the Saint Mary’s University community (e.g., students, alumni, faculty, and staff ) will explore our stories, and talk about how we can be in community and work together in a more meaningful and reciprocal way.

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 online by Friday, September 26th.
