Jon Ritz, WRAC faculty member and CAL’s new Director of Student Wellness, will discuss CAL’s new effort to integrate wellness concepts and practices into its undergraduate learning goals, with a focus on mindfulness, creativity, and resilience. Jon will provide a brief overview of the evidence-based approach that undergirds the effort and how it will be delivered to students through cocurricular activities and direct integration in CAL courses. He will also touch on ways that a wellness-infused curriculum can help reinvigorate the arts and humanities as sites of undergraduate education.

6:35- 7:00 PM Talk #2 “It is never too Late to Learn a Language” with Sandhya Shanker; Academic Specialist at the Center for Language Teaching Advancement

In a globalized world, learning a language is not only useful when traveling but also boosts brain power. Learning a language as an adult enhances the ability to multitask, sharpens the mind and improves memory. The MSU Community Language School offers online language classes for adults with sessions in the fall, spring and summer. Information will be shared about our program offerings as well as a short taste of our online program experience.

7:00-7:40 Talk #3 “Evolving Pathways to Social Justice in the Arts and Humanities: Creativity in the Academic Class” with Julian Chambliss, Nancy DeJoy, and Natalie Phillips, CO-PIs on an Andrew Mellon Foundation Just Futures Grant.

In this presentation Chambliss, DeJoy, and Phillips discuss how centering creativity as opening paths to social justice encourages us to see creativity as central to teaching and learning in the humanities. Using the class work that inspired their Mellon Foundation Just Futures grant, the three will discuss how creativity is vital to inclusive curricula and how it expands our opportunities for community partnerships to inform our teaching.
