"Everybody Has a Story" Week
What? A faculty member, staff member and student will share a meal together during the lunch period. Tables will be reserved upstairs in the Valentine Hall Mezzanine. Each person will have the opportunity to tell some of their story as well as to listen to others. Why? Amherst College is one of some three hundred campuses participating in President Obama’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge: Advancing Interfaith Cooperation and Community Service in Higher Education. A major goal of the Campus Challenge is to increase social cohesion across differing groups on campus and to provide opportunities for people to talk about some of their values and beliefs. Everybody has a Story Week is one way the Campus Challenge Committee hopes to do this.
