Title: What I have Learned from Newts

Abstract: Over the years of studying rough-skinned newts, I have learned some simple truths about the role of stress and love in their lives, and the mechanisms by which these states of being impact their decision making and behavioral choices. And while collaborating with students, strangers, and colleagues I have come to understand how these truths offer some organizing principles for human lives, communities, and institutional organization. This Friday, I share with you some of what we have discovered and how they can help support students as they navigate their academic and co-curricular lives. If there is time, I can share how these same principles can be used to structure meetings and procedures so that our best selves can show up. Newts Picture

Students are welcome and coffee and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there.
