Join us for the first Catalyst on Campus event of fall 2019! This opening celebration will feature renowned youth mentor, author, and community advocate Jahmal Cole, founder of “My Block, My Hood, My City.” Mr. Cole will be joined by representatives from the Student Government Association, who will articulate their vision for a student body fully immersed in civic engagement. All students, faculty, and staff are invited to partake in this gathering as we invigorate North Park University with an ethos of significance and service.
The theme for Catalyst on Campus events this year is “home.” Home signifies familiarity, a sense of rootedness, and a call to connectedness. In designating home as our theme, we hope to inspire conversation around multifaceted questions, such as, “How do our neighborhoods foster a sense of home?” “Whom do we choose to welcome into our home?” and “What kind of home do you envision North Park University to be?” This opening event will inspire the university community to build a campus home that reflects our institutional values.
