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 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.

Week 2 (May 24):  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?
