Our students have many opportunities to engage in activities on campus and in the community.
Community Resolution Services Hosts Story Café in the Alvin Sherman Library
Community Resolution Services (CRS) in partnership with the College’s Graduate SGA, hosted Story Café at the Alvin Sherman Library.
Story Café, which was free and open to the public, engaged participants in sharing stories related to themselves and their families using narratives and any collateral materials (photographs, poems, etc.) Participants were at tables with graduate students from CRS as facilitators. After the story sharing, participants created an artifact using pieces of cloth and markers. Many traced their hands and added words, phrases and artwork. The pieces will be sown together to become a lasting memorial of the event.
CRS provides workshops and trainings to the community as well as participating in NSU and community events. The faculty advisor is Dr. Judith McKay.

The Social Justice Roundtable with Community Resolution Services hosted a Dialogue on “The Research is in: Inclusive Groups/Teams at the Top of Best Talent Practices!”
The Social Justice Roundtable (SJR) and Community Resolution Services (CRS) hosted a Diversity and Inclusion Dialogue on “The Research is in: Inclusive Groups/Teams at the Top of Best Talent Practices!” from 4:30-5:45 p.m. Saturday, September 24, 2016 in the Maltz Building.
The SJR provides a means to examine and discuss topics related to human rights and social justice. Research shows how inclusive groups and teams have stronger outcomes and help to predict the highest performing organizations. The question is how can we better understand and build inclusion into our own best practices?
Over twenty students participated as well as Dr. Mike Caldwell, NSU’s Diversity and Inclusion facilitator. SJR’s faculty advisor is Dr. Judith McKay.
