The event’s objective is to build bridges between these different constituencies, share best practices, outline common tasks, and develop solutions to teaching complicated themes that are based on our shared educational mission. Those common values are based on the values of a liberal arts education and the related pursuit of academic truth, whose mission transcends political boundaries.

Discover how Maggie’s resources can invigorate your initiatives, fostering agency and resilience.

      During the conversation, we will explore how to overcome feelings of immobilization, overwhelm, and uncertainty, instead enabling connection and impactful community action.
