Students are exposed to different ways of knowing and being through readings and discussions with a skilled facilitator/instructor in these one-half semester long co-curricular sessions (non-credit). At the end of the semester, students share their experiences, lessons learned and how the shared information will impact the remainder of their studies, professional and personal lives.
