Chicago nonprofit leaders, including i.c. stars Executive Director Sandee Kastrul, Aspire CEO Jim Kales, and Mikva Challenge CEO Michelle Morales will discuss the challenges and achievements they have experienced in their careers as agents of social change. By sharing insights about working in the nonprofit field and highlighting the impact of local nonprofit organizations, these individuals shall educate and inspire the North Park University community.
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?” These nonprofit leaders will show us how to uphold commitment and compassion within our home communities.
