Dr. Amit Sood, professor of medicine at Mayo Clinic, will present a lecture and workshop "Live Stronger Live Happier: A Scientific Approach."  Sood will discuss groundbreaking insights into understanding how the human brain operates and how it generates stress, robbing our lives of joy and vitality. Sood has developed a program that integrates cutting edge advances in neurosciences with timeless principles to help us lower stress and anxiety, and enhance resiliency and well-being. This program has been tested in dozens of clinical trials and offered to thousands of patients and learners in the past six years. 

Day of Solidarity

Faculty and staff representatives from the College of Education and the Women and Gender Studies Program will sponsor a Day of Solidarity gathering. This gathering is for all faculty, staff and students who desire to stand in support of students and others who were victimized by the racist, sexist, homophobic and other offensive comments anonymously posted to the social media site Yik Yak. We invite all who are ready and willing to stand up against oppressive language and actions to wear black on Nov. 6.
T-shirts to wear for the event can be purchased by emailing with your size by Wednesday, Oct. 29. The cost of the shirt will be approximately $8. The shirts will say "We Can Do Better" (front) and "Panther Pride (noun): the feelng one gets from being a part of a diverse edcuational community that respects, supports, encourages and values the contributions of all its members while pushing all to rise out of their ignorance" (back).
