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 4-week 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 3-4:30pm on 4 consecutive Thursdays. Please sign up for the series only if you're able to attend all 4 sessions. Snacks will be provided and REGISTRATION is required.
