Join us at the Alternative Media Conference

In 1970 alumnus Larry Yurdin (BA ’67) organized the first Alternative Media Conference at Goddard, a revolutionary event with the goal of creating media that “awakens rather than aestheticizes.” Goddard’s community radio station, WGDR, was one of the important outcomes of this ground-breaking conference. In the spirit of that original event, I warmly invite you to attend the 2013 Goddard College Alternative Media Conference on May 18.

Goddard at the AASHE Conference: A Leader in Sustainability

 

I had the privilege of representing Goddard at the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) conference this October.  I was invited to the conference in Los Angeles by the Chronicle of Higher Education to speak as one of a four- person panel about sustainability in higher education.  Approximately 150 people--faculty, students, college presidents, sustainability administrators and trustees attended the session. Goddard was invited as a leader and innovator.

The Occupy movement is right

“Students should not only be trained to live in a democracy when they grow up; they should have the chance to live in one today.”– Alfie Kohn, writer and education activist

UC Davis, UC Berkeley and Penn State.

At two of these institutions, they called the police when they shouldn’t have. At another, they failed to call the police when they should have.

There is much we must learn from these events.
