|Session I--Summer Lunch Series: Making Meaning for Graduate Students||Return to listing|
What is meaning making? According to Roger Kegan's theory of meaning-making development, meaning making "is a conceptualization of how human beings make meaning of themselves, of others, and of their experiences throughout their life-span." In this 3-week summer lunch series, you'll have the opportunity for personal self-reflection through free writing and small group discussion that will be supported by short articles and readings on meaning-making and purpose of life.
All sessions will be held at the Graduate Student Center at 211A West Cameron Avenue from 12-1:30 pm on 3 consecutive Thursdays. Please sign up for the series only if you're able to attend all 3 sessions. Lunch will be provided and REGISTRATION is required by Wednesday, May 31st.
Week 1 (June 1): The past--Exploration of my Identity: Who am I and where am I from?
Week 2 (June 8): The present--Resiliency and Joy: How does graduate school fit into my life's purpose? How can I sustain my passion for my work and build my resilience during challenging times? What brings me joy and how does it fit into my academic life?
Week 3 (June 15): The future--Hopes and Dreams: What are my plans post-Master's or post-Doctoral degree?
Can't make it to the June series? A second session will be offered on Thursdays in July on the 13th, 20th, and 27th from 3:30-5 pm.
