“Heating Up: The Ethics of Climate Change” with Brian Henning

Monday, April 22nd, 12 - 1pm in the Student Center, Room 120


Join ASLCC and Gonzaga professor Dr. Brian Henning on Earth Day. What if we could tell ourselves a new story about climate change—and, in doing, so, alter our relationship to our planet? With larger, longer wildfire seasons, accelerating species extinction, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise, it's increasingly clear that climate change isn't something that’s about to happen—it's here. But while the laundry list of problems wrought by climate change is well-known, few talk about how our moral beliefs about nature have led us to the brink. In this presentation, ethicist Brian G. Henning discusses how global warming itself is not the only problem—it's a symptom of a larger issue concerning how we conceive of ourselves and our relationship to the natural world.

Culture and Nonverbal Communication

Wednesday, May 15th, 3:00 - 4:00 pm in Health & Science Building, Room 123

Nonverbal Communication represents a way of exchanging messages without the use of words (e.g. appearance, clothing, personal space, facial expression, gestures, touch, tone etc.) This communication depends heavily on the cultural context of an interaction. These cultural differences create special obstacles and opportunities for becoming more competent communicators.

In this workshop you'll learn how to:

  • Discuss how culture affects the different types of nonverbal communication.
  • Share the challenges or obstacles this has created for interactions.
  • Identify areas of opportunity to encourage communication that is more competent.
