Identity Crisis Newsletter Interest Meeting

IdentityCrisis

From Sasha Stahl ’17:

It feels really good when people say something you can relate to or connect with. People at Wesleyan have varied, unique identities that cover a breadth of experiences, opinions, and attitudes that can both allow us to understand where our peers are coming from or conversely, not quite relate to one another.

To that end, what I want to CREATE is a brief, bimonthly NEWSLETTER that allows people to relate to one another, through a sharing of personal anecdotes, a section highlighting a Wesleyan student of the week who has focused on their identity in some way, and an “overheard this week” section, among others. Simultaneously I want people to feel EMPOWERED and COMFORTED by the knowledge that people on campus experience similar feelings, frustrations, and feats as they do. I want this newsletter to help people on campus realize the different identities and experiences that make up this campus, while also creating a dialogue to speak about these differences.

Sign Up for the ENGAGE Newsletter

From Civic Engagement Fellow Dana Pellegrino ’12 wants to engage you:

Have you heard of the new ENGAGE newsletter? The ENGAGE newsletter culls ENGAGE blog posts into an easily digestible weekly email.

Currently the ENGAGE blog offers up a daily selection of links that pertain to civic engagement. For those who may be unfamiliar with civic engagement, we like to casually define it as positively interacting with and changing your community, whether it be close by or worldwide. At Wesleyan, two offices work primarily with civic engagement concepts: The Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship, and the Office of Community Service, which operates under the Center for Community Partnerships.
