Event Image Exhibition | "David Roberts: Travels in the Holy Land" | Aug. 10 - Dec. 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.

University Convocation - "American Foreign Policy: U.S. Role in an Increasingly Globalized World"
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

Recent events in Syria threw United States foreign policy into the forefront of the political debate. Questions such as, "When should the United States intervene internationally?" and "What should the United States leave to other people?" were all too common. Needless to say, the debate continues.

Join Professors Seth Cotlar (history), Yan Liang (economics), and Michael Marks (politics) for a discussion on United States foreign policy. Learn about the United States' involvement in the international arena and discuss U.S. policy.

The University Convocation series is facilitated through the Office of the Chaplains and planned by the students of IDS 202 (Convo: Campus/Community/Cosmos).
Mindfulness Meditation

The practice of mindfulness refers to our efforts and discipline at being fully present in the now, of living in the present moment. Mindfulness practice nourishes an understanding of the interconnectedness of our lives with the larger world we inhabit, allowing us to develop an enhanced awareness of the present, a stillness that cultivates a mind of love, compassion, kindness and peace.

Beginners are most welcome!
